Who wants to eat fluffy chocolate mousse for breakfast? Ok, so there are some (strange) people out there who don’t like chocolate, my hubby included, but I hope most of you will reply with a deafening ‘YES PLEASE!’
I get sick of having the same things for breakfast, but not being a morning person I find it difficult most mornings to even decide what I want to eat, let alone make it. That’s why I love overnight oats. Prepared the night before, all I have to do the next morning is take them out of the fridge and devour them.
For me, this recipe makes enough for three days and keeps well in the fridge in a covered container. I get my chocolate fix first thing and start the day with a filling breakfast. It’s a win-win!
