Snickers Style Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats Recipe

This is what I used, but please do take this as an idea and play with it to suit your taste buds!

Make up the oats layer and leave in fridge overnight. All the other layers can be made either the night before or in the morning, so long as you have soaked the fruit for the caramel. Assembly as you wish. I used the chocolate crunch at the bottom, followed by the chocolate pudding, followed by the oats, then the caramel layer, crunch again, pudding again, then topped with crunch and chopped peanuts.

Chocolate crunch layer (used for bottom, middle and top)

1/4 cup (4 tbsp) creamed coconut softened (coconut butter)(I put the pack in a mug and add boiling water to melt the packet - if its sealed, just add water to cover a quarter of it, and then press out 1/4 cup, if its open, be careful not to get water in it. You can always make up the whole packet into chocolate crunch by taking the recipe x 4, but please note that it will solidify. You could make it into a chocolate bar and add additions such as fruit and or nuts or in a container where you could easily break it up into the crunch again.)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp liquid sweetener such as the sweet freedom fruit based sweetener

Whizz in a food processor until a crunchy consistency is achieved.

Chocolate pudding layer (easy to double and have some in for a quick pudding)

1/4 cup oats
1/2 cup non dairy milk
1/2 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 small banana

Whizz in a food processor until creamy.

Oats layer
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup non dairy milk
1/2 tbsp ground flax seed

Mix in a bowl and leave overnight in the fridge

Caramel layer (This can be made a few days ahead if you wish)

1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dates
1 1/2 tbsp liquid sweetener such as sweet freedom fruit based sweetener
1 tbsp peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1 tsp vanilla

Soak the fruit overnight, then drain and whizz all the ingredients in a food processor to make into a creamy consistency.

Chopped peanuts or mixed nuts to sprinkle on top.

Serve 2 for breakfast or 2 or 3 for dessert! (Picture shows 1 portion)

  1. This looks so good! I think I would love it. I've never heard of creamed coconut.

  2. Getting woosy from all of these delicious overnight oats recipes! YUM! I actually posted a chia pudding this week that sounds so similar. You must have inspired me! :)

  3. Tami, In the UK the creamed coconut is usually in the oriental aisle of the supermarket. It is in a UHT box and is made of 100% coconut. If you put creamed coconut in the search on you will see many of the brands available to you in California. Your website looks good, I have just subscribed to it.

  4. Glad your liking my overnight oats series Heather. I have a list of about 20 different ideas to try.

  5. Oh wow, now you are really spoiling us with this snickers overnight oats!

    Creamed coconut is called Coconut Butter in the USA. You can buy creamed coconut there too (on Amazon) and it's often a lot cheaper than Coconut Butter even though it's exactly the same thing!

  6. Arrgg not sure I could leave it overnight lol!!! Sounds too yummy for sure ;)

  7. OMG! LOVE!! Seriously made this last night and it's already gone. LOL... Delicious!
