They go together like eggs and bacon, biscuits and gravy or pancakes and syrup. But it’s not often you find that perfect combo of coconut and chocolate in a breakfast dish. Tastier than those joyful candy bars and better for you than the usual grab-and-go morning meal, these overnight oats bring together dessert-like flavor and notable nutrition (with protein, fiber, omegas, antioxidants and more) for a sweet and healthy start to your day.
