Description

These Chocolate Coconut Almond Overnight Oats are such a treat to wake up to! They’re great when time’s tight and you need something easy. (Vegan, Gluten-Free)


Ingredients

Scale

For The Almond Joy Overnight Oats:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (certified gluten-free, as needed)
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tsp. unsweetened dark cocoa powder (Dutch cocoa/alkalized cocoa powder)
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut (toasted, if you can!)
  • 1 Tbsp. sliced or chopped almonds
  • 1/2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • a few drops almond extract
  • a pinch of salt (less than 1/8 tsp.)
  • 1/21 cup almond milk or light coconut milk

Optional toppings: shaved or shredded coconut, more sliced or chopped almonds, mini chocolate chips, cacao nibs, fresh berries, etc.


Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine oats, chia seeds, cocoa powder, coconut, almonds, syrup, vanilla, almond extract (if using), and salt.
  2. Drizzle in the milk and stir until the liquid is fairly uniform. (No large chunks of cocoa powder remain.)
  3. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes to thicken slightly, then stir again. (This will help prevent the chia seeds from settling in a clump or falling all to the bottom.)
  4. Transfer the mixture to a bowl or jar and cover. 
  5. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  6. When you’re ready to serve them, give the oats a stir and garnish with your favorite toppings.
  7. Almond Joy Overnight Oats will stay fresh in the refrigerator 2-3 days for the best texture, but can keep up to 4-5 days. 
  8. To serve the oats warm, heat in a pan on the stovetop with a drizzle of milk over medium heat, or in a bowl in the microwave for 60-90 seconds with a drizzle of milk, as needed.
