My Fave Chocolate Pudding Overnight Oatmeal

5 from 7 reviews


My children LOVE when I make this easy overnight oatmeal for breakfast – after all, who doesn’t like chocolate pudding?? I happen to love having a breakfast to feed everyone that I don’t have to think about. 🙂

The glucomannan (a natural thickening agent) and additional protein from collagen will help keep you full until lunch!

THM E, sugar free, low fat. See notes below for allergy options.


  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 2 tablespoons collagen (optional for added protein)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon glucomannan (xanthan gum should also work)
  • 1/8 teaspoon THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (or your favorite sweetener, to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups liquid of choice (I use a combination of unsweetened almond milk and water)


Whisk the dry ingredients together in some kind of container with a lid, then add the liquid and mix well to make sure there are no clumps of dry ingredients left at the bottom. Sweeten to taste! Refrigerate overnight to thicken and enjoy cold in the morning.

Feel free to top with your favorite additions. Some sliced banana, a teaspoon of natural peanut butter, a few tablespoons of defatted peanut flour (in place of or in addition to the collagen), a sprinkling of sugar free chocolate chips – these are all great! Just keep your added fats to 5g or less to stay in THM E territory. Some cherries and almond extract would also be good!


Feel free to use regular milk instead of almond milk if you aren’t strictly following THM and don’t need a dairy free option.

You can heat this up if you like, but it gets a little gloopy because of all the glucomannan (which activates even more with heat).

If you want a thicker result, decrease the liquid by 1/4 cup.

ALLERGY (toppings not included): gluten free (use gluten free oats), egg free, dairy free, nut free if using dairy milk or your favorite nut free milk alternative
