Prep breakfast the night before, so you can freely hit the snooze button the next morning. This Mocha Overnight Oats recipe will not only fill you up but also give you a little extra energy for the morning.
I used to be the person who never hit the snooze button. I would jump out of bed the second my alarm went off. I’ve gotten into the bad habit of staying up too late doing work. Sometimes I just get on a roll and keep working until my eyes can barely stay open. I know this is such a bad habit. I’m working on it..
This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Grab a Book and Cook” which is a fun way to remake a recipe from your favorite cookbook. I grabbed my newest book from my collection for this month’s theme.

I never thought to add coffee to my overnight oats. This is genius! The little extra pick me up, plus the mocha flavor is a perfect way to start the day. The original recipe calls for the addition of coffee and chocolate protein powder, but I only had vanilla protein powder, so I added that plus a little cocoa powder to get that same mocha flavor.
I topped mine with some raspberries and a little chocolate granola.
- ⅓ cup rolled oats
- ⅓ cup strongly brewed coffee, cooled
- ⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- Toppings: raspberries, chocolate raspberry granola
- In a mason jar or container, add all ingredients; stir well until combined.
- Cover an refrigerate overnight.
- In the morning, before serving, top with raspberries and chocolate raspberry granola. Enjoy!
