Almond Joy Protein Overnight Oats
This easy recipe tastes like the classic candy bar! It’s easily doubled, tripled, or quadrupled, and it’ll keep for at least 5 days if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  1. Combine everything except the oats until thoroughly combined in a mason jar or plastic container with a tight-fitting lid. Stir in the oats. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 8 hours.
Notes: Overnight oats are meant to be eaten cold, straight from the refrigerator! No need to heat them up.

Any milk may be substituted for the nonfat milk.

Any sweetener may be substituted for the stevia. You’ll want the equivalent of about 3-4 teaspoons of granulated sugar.

Shredded sweetened coconut may be substituted for unsweetened coconut.

Instant oats (aka quick-cooking or one-minute oats) may be substituted for the old-fashioned oats. Do not substitute steel-cut oats; they do not soften enough.

For a stronger almond flavor, add finely diced almonds. For a stronger coconut flavor, add more shredded unsweetened coconut, add ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon of coconut extract, or substitute coconut milk for the nonfat milk.
