If I didn’t already love overnight oats, I have a reason to love them even more with these chunky monkey overnight oats. I’ve always said that overnight oats are one of my favorite things to have prepped for the mornings. Not only are they convenient for a busy morning, but they keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours.
If you also love overnight oats as much as I do, be sure to also check out these recipes:
- Carrot Cake Overnight Oats
- The OG Overnight Oats
- Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats
These are completely dairy free (depending on the chocolate chips that you use, I love the mini Enjoy Life chocolate chips!) and gluten free.
If you have a little sweet tooth like me, you’ll love these chunky monkey overnight oats. Chocolate included at breakfast, count me in!
This recipe does serve two, so you can either split it up into two different jars or just make it all in one and pour some into a bowl when you’re ready to eat it.
What you need to make chunky monkey overnight oats:
- Rolled oats

A few tips on storing these:
- I always store them in a tight sealed container! A few that I love are Weck jars, Porter bowls (code ‘onebalancedlife’ gets you 20% off your order!) and Ball mason jars
