Coffee Almond Overnight Oats

Happy hump day, everyone! I hope the week is going well!! I am currently writing this from Urgent Care. 😷 I’ve had an illness working on me since Saturday, but today I hit my breaking point. I left work and here I am. 

Even though I haven’t been feeling well, I have been craving a big bowl of overnight oats. I was able to prepare this last night and enjoy it this morning before I had a fever. Now the only thing that sounds good is sleep and sweats! 
I made these oats to include my favorite things: coffee, almond butter, chocolate, and a few other tasty additions! I also went a little crazy with toppings, but we all go a little crazy sometimes, right?

*Note: The overnight oats were runny before I put it them in the fridge, but had a perfect consistency when I pulled them out this morning. Feel free to add more oats for a thicker bowl.*

Serves: 1 to 2 (I ate them all to myself).

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 to 1 cup of oats
  • 1/4 cup of chilled coffee 
  • 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk (or any milk you like)
  • 1 to 2 TBSP of almond butter 
  • 1 TBSP of chia seeds
  • 1 TBSP of cocoa powder or PB2 (I used hershey’s special dark chocolate cocoa powder)
  • 1 to 2 TBSP of truvia
  • Toppings (I used whole almonds, bear naked cocoa cashew butter granola, sliced bananas, and thai toasted coconut chips). You could also drizzle extra almond butter over the top!

Directions:

  1. Take 1/4 cup of brewed coffee and place in the fridge  (I just chilled a cup from my keurig before assembling the bowl).
  2. Mix oats, yogurt, almond milk, almond butter (melt for a few seconds if too firm to mix), chia seeds, cocoa powder, and trivia in a bowl until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Take 1/4 cup of coffee and mix into the bowl.
  4. Cover the bowl and place in fridge overnight. 
  5. Once you are ready to eat, take the bowl out of the fridge, stir, then assemble toppings as you like!! 
  6. Enjoy! 

Below are my before and after topping pictures!! 

I hope you guys enjoy this recipe and have a great rest of your week!!

With love,

Carly
