Chocolate Covered Strawberry Overnight Oats

That's right folks. You read it here first. Chocolate Covered Strawberries. For breakfast. I have decided, after spotting dozens of blog posts and recipes, to hop on the overnight oats train. There are so many different flavors, and the oats are so verstaile, that I see this train stopping NO time soon! For my first combination, but certainly not last, I decided to go with "Chocolate Covered Strawberry" overnight oats. Honestly, who doesn't like chocolate, or strawberries, let alone chocolate covered strawberries for breakfast. Plus, chocolate is actually healthy for you if eaten in the right context. This recipe is chock full of protein and whole grains, how can it NOT be good for you? By using cocoa powder and fresh fruit, I combined the perfect sweet treat for breakfast. Plus did I mention these oats are chocolate covered strawberry oats? Just wanted to make sure I hadn't lost you.
