You may have seen the snickers oats trend on social media, as did I – I absolutely had to make this recipe. It was the smashing of the dark chocolate layer into the gooey caramel sauce that did it for me! I have made this recipe over and over again and it simply doesn’t get old. 

Oats get such a bad reputation of being like this grey gruel – however oats are wonderfully versatile and can be transformed into pudding for breakfast. This snickers overnight oats are genuinely so tasty and put the gruel reputation to bed for good!

Why Should I make these Snickers Overnight Oats?

  1. They are quick to make and worth every bite. Most of the ingredients are pantry essentials so hopefully you wont have to shop too many ingredients.
  2. They are nutritious and filling, with chia seeds, peanuts, peanut butter, soya yogurt and oats all packing that protein punch.
  3. They are filling and satisfying, and work great for meal prep and on the go. Whether it is breakfast, brunch or post gym snack, they are easily transportable if made in an airtight jar.
  4. You can make some easy substitutions should you not have all of the ingredients, such as a mashed banana instead of the yoghurt.
  5. This recipe tastes almost like a dessert – and who doesn’t want dessert for breakfast?

Meal Prep Recipe

These vegan snickers overnight oats are the perfect meal preparation recipe. You can bulk make the amount of pots you desire and have a special breakfast each morning for the week. Peanut butter, chocolate and sticky date caramel? I’m sold.

You can even vary this snickers oatmeal with what you add to it, for instance I added extra vanilla soya yogurt on one day and another I added some chopped banana – however mostly I enjoy the recipe as it is as it doesn’t necessarily need extra additions.

As a nurse, meal prepping to me is so important to get me through the week. Hospital food just does not appeal to me and it costs so much money, so grabbing the healthy, affordable ingredients from my pantry is so worth it in more ways than one.

As I sat down this morning for my Snickers Pot – it felt so luxurious to actually eat something so delicious during a busy shift.

Are these Snickers Overnight Oats healthy?

Oats are renowned for their health boosting properties, with slow release carbohydrates, low glycaemic index and high protein content. Oatmeal or porridge is nutritious and keep us fuller for longer which is what we need at the start of the day.

These overnight oats are largely whole foods making them a healthy option. However it should be noted they are slightly more indulgent with regards to sugar content, as it contains dark chocolate and date caramel on top.

What kind of Oats to use for overnight oats?

The best kind of oats are rolled oats for sure, they soak up the liquid and give a more creamy texture. Unfortunately whole oats give a more coarse finish.

What Vegan Caramel To Use?

Vegan caramel does not seem to be something that is readily available from the stores. We have an absolutely delicious home made Vegan Caramel Recipe here if you are feeling fancy.

This recipe uses date caramel which is often found in health food stores, or can be made easily by blending soaked gooey medjool dates with a little plant based milk.

How to make these snickers overnight oats?

Ingredients – Makes 3 servings 

  • 1 cup rolled oats (can be GF if needed)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1.5 cup plant based milk (I used oat milk)
  • 3 tbsp date caramel
  • ¼ cup vanilla dairy free yoghurt (I used soya yogurt)
  • ¼ cup melted chocolate
  • ¼ cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
  • 1 tbsp peanuts (optional)

Method

  1. Combine oats, plant based milk, chia seeds, peanut butter and vanilla yoghurt altogether in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Separate mixture into 3 jars or containers of choice
  3. Layer 1 tbsp of date caramel over each layer of porridge
  4. Melt the dark chocolate, either over a bain marie or on a very low heat in a saucepan (be careful not to burn)
  5. Add a layer of chocolate to each pot and sprinkle some peanuts on top
  6. Place in the fridge to set – these should be ready to eat within a couple of hours when the chocolate has set.
  7. Cover over with lid or cling film if leaving for a later time – enjoy!

Notes

  1. If you wanted a nut free version, you can substitute the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter, and the peanuts for sunflower seeds. I know some people will say this is blasphemy to the ode to snickers however I am all here for seeking alternative for those with allergies! Besides sunflower seed butter is the bomb!
  2. These should stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. They are the perfect meal prep recipe to keep you satisfied for the week
  3. This recipe did not sweeten the actual oats as the date caramel and chocolate provide enough sweetness
  4. You can use whatever plant based milk is preferred – this recipe uses oat milk however soya, almond or coconut would work just great also
  5. Don’t worry if you do not have vegan yogurt, you could substitute this with a mashed banana instead
Yield: 3 portions
