Have an Oat-tastic start to your day with this overnight oats recipe that’s packed with chocolate flavor.

For the Recipe
- Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut chocolate
- 1 cup of oats
- 1 medium banana
- ⅓ cup strawberry
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp flax seeds
- 1 tsp raisins
- 1 tsp of maple syrup (optional)
In two containers, begin by mixing half a cup of oats and almond milk each. This is the base for your overnight oats.
Cut the Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut Chocolate into very thin slices.
Proceed to cut the banana and strawberries into bite-sized pieces. Add these to your containers with oats.
Next come the chia seeds and flax seeds for omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, along with raisins.
Give all the ingredients one last mix so that the seeds don't settle at the bottom of the containers.
Refrigerate both containers overnight to allow all the flavors to familiarize themselves with each other and for the oats and the chia seeds to absorb the liquid. The result should be a creamy and satisfying texture.
In the morning, take out the containers from the fridge and have an oat-tastic start to the day.
Cut the dough with a doughnut cutter.
Let it rise at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Fry the dough in a low medium heat until it gets golden brown.
Melt the chocolate.
Dip the doughnut in the melted chocolate.
While the Oat-tastic will be sweet because of the chocolate and the fruit, you can still add maple syrup.
If you want your dessert to be a tad bit healthier, consider adding Cadbury Bournville instead to this dish. Dark chocolate generally contains less sugar, and has a higher quantity of antioxidants, manganese, iron, magnesium, copper, and manganese.
And if you don’t want any added sugar at all, consider using just natural maple syrup and raisins along with Cadbury cocoa powder for that chocolate kick.
Other options for sweeteners are chopped dates, jaggery, and agave syrup.
Depending on seasonal availability, you can add blueberries, mangoes, kiwis, pomegranate seeds, apples, plums, and peaches to this recipe.
