If you’re a fan of the Snickers candy bar, I have an easy and nutritious solution for you – Snickers Overnight Oats.
Why Choose Snickers Overnight Oats?
Health Benefits of Oats
Snickers Overnight Oats will not only satisfy your sweet tooth but also offer numerous health benefits. Oats are a fantastic source of complex carbohydrates and fiber. They help keep you full and provide a steady release of energy throughout the day, making them the perfect choice for breakfast.
Rich Nutritional Profile
Oats are packed with essential nutrients like fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They are an excellent source of beta-glucans, a type of soluble fiber that can help lower cholesterol levels and improve heart health. Additionally, oats are naturally gluten free and suitable for people with dietary restrictions.
Another reason I love these vegan Snickers Overnight Oats is the convenience they offer. You can prepare them the night before, saving valuable time in the morning. Just a few minutes of preparation, a night in the fridge, and you’re good to go.
Ingredients for this recipe
To get started, you’ll need the following ingredients: creamy peanut butter, chia seeds, cacao powder, maple syrup (or honey), plant based milk (soy, almond, oat or coconut), rolled oats, chocolate chips, and roasted peanuts. You can also add vanilla extract for extra flavor or protein powder for extra protein to start the day.
How to make Snickers Overnight Oats
- First, add milk, chia seeds, cacao powder, peanut butter, and maple syrup to a medium bowl with a lid and stir with a spoon to combine. Next, add oats and stir a few more times. Cover securely with a lid and set in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 6 hours).
- The next day, open and divide oats evenly between 2 bowls. Finally, top with peanuts and chocolate chips when ready to serve.
Chocolate Lovers’ Dream
If you’re a chocoholic, you can increase the cocoa powder or add chocolate layer of chips.
You can also drizzle some caramel sauce over your oats for an extra touch of sweetness and a true Snickers bar experience.
