I am not a fan of sweet breakfasts but this was absolutely delicious. I added a teaspoon of maple syrup for a touch of sweetness.

Anita - May 14, 2024, 8:07 a.m.

I must say I was a bit sceptical because I didn't spot any evident source of sweetness in the ingredient list but as I tried and was blown away by the delicious taste and texture!
It's just what I need especially at the end of the menstrual cycle when my body needs some extra magnesium 🥰

PUL Team - May 15, 2024, 3:30 a.m.

Aww we're so happy to hear that the overnight oats were enjoyed, Anita! Sending lots of love your way 🫶

Lenka - March 17, 2024, 8:42 a.m.

Definitely will do it again.

Sada - Jan. 28, 2024, 5:41 p.m.

I made it with oat milk and peanut butter. Tastes amazing😍

Rose - Dec. 10, 2023, 4:29 a.m.

Hi, thank you for the amazing recipes. Just a question, this doesn’t have any sweetener?!

PUL Team - Dec. 11, 2023, 1:13 a.m.

Hey there, Rose, the chocolate and strawberries contribute to a sweet taste. Dutch-processed cocoa powder also has a sweeter flavour than other cocoa powders. You're welcome to add an alternative sweetener if you'd like though 🙂

When your day starts with this you know it'll be a good day 😎😋

Annemarieke - Aug. 4, 2023, 9:52 a.m.

Absolutely delicious!
The little bit of shredded chocolate gives it a very rich taste.
I omitted maple syrup and substituted with a mashed banana for sweetness.
LOVE this app!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Nohemie - June 22, 2023, 3:08 a.m.

Its good with a little bit of maple sirup 😋

Helen - Feb. 1, 2023, 6:34 p.m.

Hi 💜 does the nutrition info include the toppings? Xx

PUL Team - Feb. 4, 2023, 3:10 a.m.

Hey Helen, yes it does 🙂

Maria - Dec. 25, 2022, 2:39 p.m.

Proper obsessed with this, what a treat for breakfast!

PUL Team - Dec. 28, 2022, 6:58 a.m.

Aw thank you, Maria!

Sara - Oct. 4, 2022, 11:44 a.m.

What a delectable and indulgent breakfast - loved it!

Kassy - Aug. 6, 2022, 7:43 a.m.


How long do you think I can keep it on the fridge ? I would like to do couple of overnight oat in advance.

Thanks (I've been eating this receipe almost every day since you post it on youtube 2 years ago).

PUL Team - Aug. 6, 2022, 7:03 p.m.

Hey there, Kassy, we find this one stays best in a mason jar in the fridge for up to 2 days 🙂

Archa - March 28, 2023, 8:06 a.m.

Hi Kassy,

I batch make it actually. I make 5 different mason jars of this overnight oats every sunday and use it throughout the week l They stay good in fridge. I add the topping only in the morning just before eating

Astrid - May 25, 2022, 7:53 a.m.

I love every recipe from you, but this one I wasn't gaga over

PUL Team - May 25, 2022, 4:26 p.m.

Hey there, Astrid, thank you for taking the time to share - how disappointing! Were all of the ingredients followed as listed? We do find the optional toppings in overnight oats also helpful to make the recipe more personal. So glad the other PUL recipes are being enjoyed in any case and do let us know if you have any other feedback to help PUL improve 🙂

Zoe Lee - March 28, 2022, 11:07 a.m.

This is heaven!!

Celina - Feb. 18, 2022, 9:24 p.m.

I love this. I didn't even add the chocolate and I used hazelnut butter and this really tastes like Nutella 😋. As a German who grew up having Nutella all the time, this makes me extremely happy 😊. Thanks for the recipe ❤️

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2022, 4:33 a.m.

Mmm sounds delicious, Celina, we're so glad to hear! Love the personal connection to it 😃

Navya - Nov. 14, 2021, 5:29 p.m.

It is really awesome for a chocolate lover me !! This has become my new favorite!!

Linda - Oct. 25, 2021, 12:49 a.m.

This is amazing!!! I love overnight oats but my husband and kids have never enjoyed it. This got a massive thumbs up from them all. I’ve never used hazelnut butter before and it’s my new favourite nut butter. I really enjoyed it topped with strawberries as a nice fresh taste to balance it out.

PUL Team - Oct. 26, 2021, 4:55 a.m.

Woohoo! So glad your family enjoyed it. Strawberries are a lovely topping, Linda 🍓

Sil - Sept. 25, 2021, 7:33 a.m.

Great recipe! I love oatmeal and all the chocolate make it even better. Thank you Sadia and the PUL team. Greatings from Argentina.

PUL Team - Sept. 26, 2021, 1:49 a.m.

Aw we appreciate this so much, Sil! Greeting back to Argentina 🤗

Ana - Aug. 20, 2021, 7:33 p.m.

I'm not a big fan of oatmeal and I've tried making it many different ways. I finally found a recipe that I truly enjoy. I've already made these overnight oats numerous times and love them. I add fresh blueberries as a topping. Thank you so much, Sadia! Btw, love your cookbook which I use daily. Much love from Serbia! :)

PUL Team - Aug. 23, 2021, 10:50 p.m.

Oh, Ana, we're so thrilled you're enjoying the oatmeal and PUL cookbook! Much love back to Serbia 💚

Emily - July 27, 2021, 10:33 a.m.

Depending on the sweetness of your 'Nutella', you might want to add something to balance that sweetness. I ended up putting a bunch of thawed frozen berries on top and it was divine. Such a delicious treat and a good choice for "second breakfast".

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 9:07 p.m.

Thawed berries sound delicious! Thank you, Emily 😍

Rachel - July 24, 2021, 11:37 p.m.

Delicious, easy, nutritious, satisfying.. what more could you want

Emma - July 12, 2021, 2:42 p.m.

This is absolutely the best breakfast🥰 was struggling to actually eat breakfast in the mornings, your overnight recipes have been so helpful 😊 this and the strawberry cheesecake overnight oats are my favourite!

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 3:50 a.m.

What a huge compliment, Emma, thank you! So happy you're enjoying the overnight oat recipes 🤗

Archa - July 8, 2021, 11:54 p.m.

I have been eating this literally every single morning for the last two months, and yet to get bored of it. I love it so much, since I am the laziest person on earth and lazy to chop chocolate, I just add a spoon of maple syrup. It is wonderful with strawberries on top. Thank you so much <3

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 5:07 p.m.

I'd do this again with a little less cocoa and perhaps a little bit of dried fruits such as raisins for sweetness!

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 10:11 p.m.

Thank you for the review, Cris! Lovely idea to add some dried fruit for sweetness 🤗

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - March 29, 2021, 10:10 a.m.

This is heaven for any chocolate lover 😍
I’ve tried different topping combinations and so far I prefer this combination to compensate the bittersweet flavour: roasted and salted pumpkin seeds, coconut yoghurt and stewed or thawed strawberries.
Thank you so much for an indulgent Friday breakfast!!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 11:09 p.m.

Pumpkin seeds are a lovely topping idea 🤤 So happy you enjoyed the recipe, Louise!
