I’m not a plan ahead kind of person much. Especially when it comes to cooking. But I’m always happy when I make overnight oatmeal. This version is especially decadent and can be a yummy dessert as well.

It all starts with a mason jar.

I added rolled oats, chia seeds, goji berries, cocoa powder and maple syrup to my jar. Then a can of coconut milk and stirred it all up. In the morning, I stirred it some more and served it topped with more goji berries and cacao nibs. It seemed a little too good for breakfast, but I got over that pretty fast.

Wonderful, filling way to start the day. Goji berries and chocolate are the best combination. And as an added bonus, goji berries are a superfood antioxidant that help boost your immune system. Boom!
