  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp shredded coconut optional
  • 1 tsp ground flax meal
  • 1 tsp chia seeds optional
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • Dash of sea salt


  • Combine all ingredients in small jar or bowl that can be sealed. Stir well.
  • Refrigerate overnight. Serving options: serve with a sprinkle of cocoa nibs, dark chocolate chips, or sliced banana.


I tried a batch with and without the coconut. I preferred the oats with the coconut as it gave it a touch more flavor and sweetness. If you are not a coconut fan, feel free to omit it. **Chia seeds offer protein and fiber. Some people don't care for the taste. Also, they swell up in the liquid and can often get stuck in your teeth. If you have a big meeting in the morning, you may want to skip them!
