Almond Joy Overnight Oats

Coconut flakes, almond, and chocolate chips come together overnight to create delicious Almond Joy Oats perfect for anytime of the year to satisfy that sweet tooth!

I don't know about you, but I am addicted to Halloween candy. I actually have a problem. Last year Halloween I didn't get my candy for the trick or treaters until late and there weren't very many bags left. I ended up running out within ONE HOUR! It was absolutely insane. This year, I got my candy early and made sure I stocked up. I swear to you, hardly any trick or treaters came. They most likely remembered last year, ha! So now I have four full family-sized bags of chocolate and I am O'D-ing every single night. Not that I'm actually complaining, it's more like I'm getting nervous for when the chocolate runs out. I think I'm going to have serious cravings and I've already started the weaning process to help my body adjust.

Almond Joy is my absolute FAVORITE. I love love love it. It's such a perfect candy bar floating in a sea of cliche chocolate and peanut butter bars. Of course it would be completely unrealistic to eat Almond Joy every day of the year (or is it??). That's why I propose to you...dun dah dah DUNNN Almond Joy Overnight Oats. This will satisfy your chocolate craving in a healthy way, get you off the Halloween candy binge safely, AND a convenient breakfast you will crave!

This is incredibly simple to make. Oats, milk (or soy milk), unsweetened coconut flakes, chocolate chips (you can do vegan chips to make this a completely vegan breakfast!), vanilla, and maple syrup. I like to put ground flaxseed in mine to give it that slight nutty flavor, plus it's some good added fiber and Omega-3, and then I add some almonds in the morning. You're welcome to add fruit too if you'd like! If I have a nice ripe banana it is definitely going on top of these oats (or any for that matter). Add some extra nuts of any variety, extra coconut flakes, and extra coconut flakes and voila you have a beautiful, yummy breakfast!


1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (certified gluten free for allergies)

1/2 cup milk, almond milk, or soy milk (I love vanilla soy milk)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tbsp chocolate chips (vegan if you'd like)

1/2 tbsp ground flaxseed

2 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tbsp maple syrup

Toppings: almonds, extra chocolate chips, fruit, coconut flakes, etc.


1. Combine all ingredients except toppings in an airtight container or mason jar, stir, and seal.

2. Leave oats in the refrigerator overnight.

3. In the morning, use any of the toppings for the oats and enjoy!
