Coconut Cream Pie Overnight Oats

Coconut cream pie overnight oats taste like a dessert but are the perfect healthy breakfast with over 15g of protein per serving. Super creamy and delicious, you won’t be able to stop eating these.

Overnight oats have quickly become one of my favourite breakfasts to bring to work and I’m really enjoying concocting different flavour combinations. For other on the go breakfasts, try my chocolate chip banana bread or my double chocolate zucchini muffins. Or for another healthy breakfast option that tastes like dessert, try my cream cheese filled carrot muffins which taste just like a slice of carrot cake.

These coconut overnight oats are full of coconut flavour but without as much saturated fats as other coconut recipes due to the use of coconut milk powder instead of canned coconut milk. I know this may seem like a strange ingredient but it’s so versatile and packs anything your making with tons of coconut flavour. It’s actually a common ingredient in grocery stores as well, and will likely be located in the ethnic food aisle. I love baking with it as it is lower in saturated fats but also works kind of like a coconut extract without the artificial taste.

Overnight oats are a great breakfast full of nutrients but also simple to make the night before so you can just grab them out of the fridge and go. No matter the flavour, including these coconut overnight oats, I like that I can eat them between patients easily and even if they get to room temperature, they’ll still taste good, sometimes better.

I’ve seen people commenting on social media lately that oats are just empty carbs. I’m not sure where they’re getting this information from but just because they’re not full of protein doesn’t mean there’s no nutritional value. Oats are actually a great source of fibre, mostly soluble fibre which helps slow down digestion and keeps you feeling full longer. They’re also high in iron, an essential mineral that many people don’t get enough of and other trace minerals. These are just a few of the benefits of eating oats.

While oats themselves aren’t a high protein grain, these coconut overnight oats are a good source of protein due to the addition of Greek yogurt. I love adding Greek yogurt to my baking as it generally adds a creamy element but is also very high in protein. Adding the yogurt in this recipe plus the graham cracker crumbs makes it taste just like a coconut cream pie, one of my all time favourite pies. Although, I won’t lie, I have many favourite flavours of pie!

Baking Tips

  • The coconut milk powder may seem like an odd ingredient but you can find it in the ethnic aisle of most grocery stores and it is nice and cheap.
  • For best results, once you’ve mixed everything together, let rest in the fridge overnight. This helps the oats get nice and soft and gives you a creamier consistency.
  • I create my recipes based off weights so I recommend measuring by weights if you own a scale. It’s actually so much easier and makes for much less cleanup. I wish I had baked by weight from the beginning, I could never go back now.

My song today is one I’ve heard on the radio a lot although I’ll be honest I thought it was a newer song until right now. SImone Denny’s voice is gorgeous and I can’t stop listening to it. Here’s Broken Bones (City of Love-Radio Mix) by Love Inc. & Simone Denny. Happy Baking! **Disclaimer: May be inappropriate for children due to language about drugs.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup (110g) unsweetened oat milk (or any milk)
  • 1 tbsp (8g) coconut milk powder *see notes
  • 1/4 cup (55g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp (20g) maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (60g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 tbsp (5g) chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp (5g) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp (7g) graham cracker crumbs (or 1 crushed graham cracker)

Optional Toppings

  • 1 tbsp (7g) graham cracker crumbs (or 1 crushed graham cracker)
  • 1 tbsp (5g) unsweetened shredded coconut

Instructions
 

  • In a 250mL (or bigger) size jar or container, add the milk, coconut milk powder, Greek yogurt, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir until combined. Don't worry if the coconut milk doesn't really incorporate, it will once it sets in the fridge.
  • Then add the oats, chia seeds, shredded coconut and graham cracker crumbs. Stir so eveything is mixed together. Seal the jar and put in the fridge overnight or for at least 4 hours in the fridge.
  • Give it a stir and top with desired toppings. I usually add more graham cracker crumbs as I find it just really gives it that bump of pie flavour. Then enjoy!

Notes

*Check for this in the ethnic aisle of your local grocery store. Most large grocery stores will carry it.
