Chocolate overnight oats
Get kids in the kitchen to make these chocolate overnight oats for breakfast. We've listed all the equipment they'll need to make the recipe
- 80g porridge oats
- 4tbsp natural yogurt or coconut yogurt
- 2tsp cocoa powder
- 2tsp honey or maple syrup, plus a drizzle
- 300ml milk of your choice
- weighing scales
- small measuring jug
- cutlery knife
- dessert spoon
- 2jam jars, bowls or small containers for serving
Step 1Before you get started, take a look at our weighing and measuring skills guide. If you have digital scales, place one of the jars, bowls or containers on the scales and reset to zero. Weigh 40g oats into the jar, then repeat with the second jar.
Step 2Fill a tablespoon measure right to the top with yogurt, add it to one of the jars and repeat in the same jar (so you’ve added a total of 2 tbsp yogurt). Repeat with the second jar.
Step 3Fill a teaspoon measure right to the top with cocoa powder and use a cutlery knife to swipe across the top of the spoon, knocking any excess cocoa back into its container. Tip the cocoa into one of the jars, then repeat with the second jar.
Step 4Rinse the teaspoon measure under warm water to wash off the cocoa powder, then use it to measure a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. Add this to one of the jars, then repeat with the second jar.
Step 5Slowly measure 300ml milk into a jug, then pour roughly half of the milk into one jar and the rest into the second – you can estimate this rather than weighing again.
Step 6Stir each of the jars well until the ingredients are combined and the mixture is chocolatey brown. Top each jar with a drizzle of honey and 4 raspberries, then chill overnight to enjoy for breakfast the next day.
