  • pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 shot hot espresso
  • 2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate chips


  1. Combine the salt, sugar and hot espresso until the salt and sugar are completely dissolved.
  2. Then, in a small bowl, combine the mascarpone and milk until the mascarpone is broken up and no longer visible as distinct chunks.
  3. In a small jar or container with a lid, add the espresso, milk mixture and oats. Mix to make sure all of the oats have been moistened.
  4. Cover the container and refrigerate for at least five hours, and up to one week.
  5. When ready to eat, add the chocolate chips. You can add milk or water to thin if needed, and can either eat cold or microwave until warm.

Recipe Notes

You can omit the mascarpone and add a glug of creamer, half and half, or heavy cream to the milk instead.

You can dust the top of the oatmeal with ¼ teaspoon cocoa powder if you’d like.
