Hey there, Kinfoke! You know I love the mud. Sara Beth used to spend her summers in south Mississippi, so Mississippi Mud Overnight Oats seemed like a great idea! These oats are perfect for a long busy day because they are a lot heavier in fat than the other recipes. We have found oats are an excellent way to fuel for our workouts. Overnight oats are easy because they require no cooking, very little prep, and you can create so many flavors.
Mississippi Mud Overnight Oats are the perfect way to get a good dose of fat in your breakfast, so you may want to limit this recipe to once or twice a week-on your busier days. Cacao adds antioxidants as well as great color and flavor. Mix your gluten free oats with cacao, hemp butter (or nut butter), shredded coconut, banana milk(click here for that recipe), and maple syrup. Try other add-ins like sunflower or pumpkin seeds or chopped nuts! This particular recipe is exciting because we used vegan chocolate chips. We use the brand called Hu organic chocolate chips.
For this recipe, SB added some hot water to the almond butter, along with the maple syrup, and some vanilla. She added the chocolate to that. That made it easier to stir in the almond butter. Use nut butter or seed butter. Below you can see some of the brands we use.
Adjust your ingredients depending on your needs. SB and I typically have the suggested serving of oats plus all the toppings, but make yours depending on your caloric requirements. Overnight oats are great for breakfast or even a meal on the go. These oats taste like no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. You’re gonna love them!!

*Here’s a tip…no frozen bananas on hand to make banana milk? No worries. Mash a banana with hot water and mix your ingredients.
