Coconut Cream Pie Overnight Oats

Coconut Cream Pie Overnight Oats

It’s only June and the first official week of summer, but I’m already over it. It was 125 degrees this past weekend. I mean, seriously, how is that possible? It doesn’t seem natural! I’m a big fan of oatmeal, but not a big hot bowl in this heat. Overnight oats are the perfect solution! First, they are SO easy! You just mix everything up the night before, stick the oats in the fridge, and in the morning, breakfast is all ready to go! And best of all, they are so versatile!

Coconut Cream Pie Overnight Oats

I’m slightly obsessed with these coconut overnight oats. They are creamy and full of coconut flavor! I used coconut milk (you can use coconut milk from a can or carton) and coconut Greek yogurt. You can experiment with light or full fat coconut milk and the same goes for the yogurt. I then topped my oats with toasted coconut and almonds. I adore the crunchy topping paired with the creamy and dreamy coconut oats!

  1. Hi. Should I I use the thick coconut milk that comes in a can or the one that is liquid and comes in a carton just like regular milk?

  2. What about nutritional info?

  3. I’m wondering when the oats are cooked – boiled or baked? something, because I’ve never eaten uncooked oats before. “Coconut cream anything” sounds good to me, just wondering…

    • That’s the beauty of overnight oat recipes, you don’t have to cook the oats. They soak up the liquid from the yogurt and milk overnight so in the morning they are nice and soft. The texture is a little different than eating warm cooked oats, but they still become soft!

  5. Where’s the nutritional info?

    • It will depend on whether you eat this in one or two servings and on the type of coconut milk and yogurt you use. I’m not a nutritionist and do not want to provide inaccurate information. My recommendation is to plug each specific ingredient you use into the nutrition calculator of your choice to get those numbers.

  6. Can you heat this up in the morning? It’s nice to have a,warm breakfast on a cold morning!

  7. it says it’s under 400 calories. Looks like it’s about 60 grams of carbs, that’s quite a lot.

  8. Oops, nevermind, I see it above in the full text now 😀

  9. I was wondering if is a difference between rolled oats and gluten free 2 min. oats. Can anyone tell me?

    • 2 minute oats are “quick oats”. For overnight oats, old fashioned oats are the best as quick oats tend to turn to mush. You can buy gluten free old fashioned oats.
