Almond Joy Oatmeal

Pin It!

Sorry I never posted yesterday. I had a busy Earth Day! It was “celebrated” mostly by writing an eight-page paper… but I DID manage to fit in a bike ride to Whole Foods (no gasoline wasted… and I brought my own grocery bags).

And now for some food: I must admit that I’ve never tried this recipe. One of my facebook friends gets credit for it. It sounds possibly a bit sweet for breakfast… but I bet it’d make an ideal chocolate-covered snack! If you try it, be sure to come back and leave a comment, letting me know what you think.

Almond Joy Oatmeal

1 C water
1/2 C coconut milk
1 C rolled oats
1/4 tsp of salt
some chocolate chips
some almonds, finely chopped
sweetener of choice, to taste

Bring the water, coconut milk, and salt to a boil. Add oatmeal, stir to mix. When the mixture returns to a boil, throw in the almonds and the chocolate chips. Cover the pan and remove it from the heat. Let it sit for 6 to 10 minutes, then serve.

  3. ChickPea says:

    After seeing this ymmy candy-inspired recipe, I might have to join this facebook group…

  4. Bonnie says:

    I really don’t know what facebook is about! But if you can get yummy vegan recipes there, it sounds good to me… I made chocolate oatmeal for myself twice now (with cocoa + maple syrup, though, not chocolate chips) and I have to say it’s quite decadent. But good! I like almonds in oatmeal, too, but I’ve never used water or coconut milk in it, only ricemilk so far. Interesting! Thanks for posting the recipe :)

    Thanks so much! Thanks for being one of my veg-inspirations!
    I’m realllllly excited for the smoothie recipe, although I could probably manage this yummy oatmeal one too..I don’t know of the chocolate chips would be too hard..haha

  6. Jennifer says:

    I think I’m part of that group on Facebook too. I haven’t checked it for awhile. I really should!

    (Happy belated Earth Day to you as well!)

    I am totally a member in that Facebook group! I might just have to peruse the members and add you as a “friend.” :)

    Your oatmeal sounds delicious!

  8. aTxVegn says:

    It would be a great before bed snack or maybe subbing cacao nibs for choc chips would make it nicer for breakfast. (Actually fruit would probably be best for breakfast.)

  9. Lina says:

    That sounds pretty good. I love almond joy candy.

  10. VTgirl says:

    I am totally trying that tomorrow morning!!

  11. Ruby Red Vegan says:

    i bet this would be even better with almond butter!!! and this probably tastes much better than real almond joy candy. i never liked that stuff.

    i think i’m a member of the global vegan network, but i will have to check.

    tell your friend thanks for the oatmeal recipe. yay for oatmeal!

  12. pleasantly plump vegan says:

    sounds great!

  13. chandra says:

    I will try it for sure once I find coconut milk!!

    Are non-vegans allowed to join the group?? If so, I’m joining tomorrow! :)

  14. Bianca says:

    Oh my god, that sounds awesome! I love Almond Joy flavored things…like my fave martini bar’s Almond Joy martini. That’s one badass drink (actually, it’s kind of a girly bitch drink, but I feel badass when I drink it).

  15. Sam says:

    Now that is right up my alley! Anytime I can get away with eating chocolate for breakfast is okay in my book!

  16. LisaRene says:

    I’m not a fan of chocolate for breakfast but agree it would be a tasty, healthy snack or “dessert”, kind of like rice pudding. It’s a great idea to use coconut milk.

  17. Ricki says:

    Sounds like you had a good Earth Day (though sorry about the paper). I think this sounds a bit sweet even for me. . . but I like the suggestion to try it with almond butter!

  18. Kumquat Peekapoo says:

    Mmmmm… I look forward to trying this one the next time I want a candybar for breakfast :)

    P.S. I think we need a German nerd before we can plan our take over of Europe!

  20. ~randi~ says:

    This recipe sounds delish! I have a love of coconut (especially when paired with chocolate!). I will have to look for this group on facebook as well.
    Happy Earth Day!

  21. Wheeler's Frozen Dessert says:

    Thanks for giving us the heads up about the facebook group! I’ll definitely check it out …

  22. poopiebitch says:

    That sounds so good! It sounds more like a dessert, to me… but I don’t think I would turn it down for breakfast either!

    The only thing better would be chocolate, peanut butter and banana oatmeal!

  23. linds says:

    You are just way too excited for this giant banana- it’s coming, don’t worry, but it’ll be another 6-8 weeks (giant bananas take a while to ship). I keep anxiously checking my email to see if I will get an offer to purchase a pair of mega melons to accompany my giant banana, but sadly, nothing yet. Do you think they’d taste good with peanut butter?

    Hahah seems I share your one track mind :0)

  24. Cody says:

    I’ve never had any sort of chocolaty oatmeal. I’ve been a pretty strict maple/brown sugar person all my life.

    This sounds wonderful, though.

  25. ChocolateCoveredVegan says:

    VTgirl, let me know what you think if you make it!

  26. Deborah R says:

    Coconut milk and chocolate in oatmeal? You’re a genius!

  27. jessica says:

    I was so excited to see this mix – I LOVE almond joy!! I tried it tonight –

    So good!

  28. Rebecca says:

    Made this for breakfast and added coconut flakes with the chocolate chips and chopped almonds. It is very yummy!!
