Chocolate Hazelnut Overnight Oats – Creamy chocolate overnight oats with a nutella-inspired twist! We love this easy breakfast! (Gluten-free, vegan)


  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (gluten free, if needed)
  • 2 tsp. chia seeds
  • pinch salt
  • 12 tsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/23/4 cup milk (we use almond, cashew, oat, or coconut)
  • 11 1/2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 12 Tbsp. hazelnuts
  • a few drops vanilla

Optional extras: mini chocolate chips, cacao nibs, dried cherries, sliced bananas, fresh strawberries or raspberries, etc.


  1. In a small bowl or jar (I find it’s easier to mix in a bowl), combine oats, chia seeds, salt, syrup, 1/2 cup milk, 1 tsp. cocoa powder, 1 Tbsp. hazelnuts, vanilla, and any desired mix-ins.
  2. Stir to combine, then taste and add additional cocoa powder, syrup, or milk as desired.
  3. Transfer to a jar or container and cover. Refrigerate at least 30-40 minutes, up to overnight.
  4. To serve, add a little drizzle of milk or syrup, if needed, then top with any desired extras for topping!



  • ADD SOME CHOCOLATEY CRUNCH! To play up the chocolate element, I love adding a tiny sprinkle of mini chocolate chips (they go further!) or cacao nibs (a great unsweetened option).
  • DRIZZLE WITH A LITTLE CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT BUTTER. You can kick up the Nutella flavor by adding a small drizzle of Nutella or a dairy-free chocolate hazelnut butter (like this one, this one, or this one). It’s a fun treat every now and then!
  • TOAST THE HAZELNUTS. If you have a few extra minutes, toasting hazelnuts in a dry pan on the stove for a few minutes till they’re golden and fragrant is an easy way to add TONS of flavor.
  • ADD SOME FRUIT. Chocolate and fruit go together beautifully, so you can also mix in some dried cherries, diced strawberries, a few raspberries, or some sliced banana. It’s all yummy!
