Almond Joy Oatmeal

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.

    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

    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!)

  4. Jess - The Domestic Vegan says

    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!

  5. 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.)

  6. 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!

  7. 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! 🙂

    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).

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. ~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!

  12. Wheeler's Frozen Dessert says

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

  13. 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!

  14. 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)

  15. 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.
