Need a sweet-tooth-satisfying breakfast for those mornings you don’t want to give in to your doughnut cravings? Make these Almond Joy overnight oats inspired by Organize Yourself Skinny!
Overnight oats make every morning better! Especially when they taste like a candy bar but actually deliver a guilt-free morning meal. Our Almond Joy overnight oats are perfectly sweetened with maple syrup and feature the scrumptious chocolate, coconut, and almond flavors you expect when you unwrap and devour the candy aisle treat.
New to overnight oats? Get ready to fall in love with them! You simply prep the oats before you go to bed and in the morning you have a healthy, hearty breakfast that begs you to grab your spoon and eat up. Overnight oats are the busy person’s answer to the fast and fabulous breakfast dilemma.
Though your craving may demand eating an Almond Joy, you know the candy bar will leave you feeling empty and unsatisfied within a couple hours. Overnight oats give you the best of both candy bar and healthy breakfast worlds.
Oats and chia seeds healthfully fill you up with much-needed nutrients without filling you out with unnecessary empty calories, sugar, and saturated fats. The cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips dazzle your taste buds with coveted chocolate flavor. Coconut milk, shredded coconut, and maple syrup gratify your desire for the satisfyingly sweet coconut flavor and texture of an Almond Joy. Sliced almonds give your cravings the same kind of satisfaction that comes from the crunchy almonds in the candy bar.
The best part of this healthy breakfast recipe is that you can make it up to 3 days in advance. Make 2 or 3 jars of Almond Joy overnight oats to feed your morning sweet tooth for part of the week. (Note that the texture of the oats becomes smoother and softer the longer the oats are in the fridge.)
We’ll grab a jar of these overnight oats over the Almond Joy candy bar any day. They’re cheaper and way healthier, but offer the same great tastes. Seriously—what’s not to love?
