Almond and Chocolate Overnight Oats

Almond Joy oatmeal, I just had to make it. I used an even amount of oatmeal and milk then added an acceptable amount of the good stuff. Chocolate, coconut and almonds. Plus a few other little things. The base for these overnight oats comes in handy for the little bags of ingredients that collect in my pantry. Raisins, cinnamon, dried cranberries, nuts, the list goes on.

I’m loving the overnight oatmeal lately at work. I’ve been flat out busy, often finding myself finally going to microwave my usual hot oatmeal at 11:30. But this oatmeal? No effort required.

This version is my current obsession.

Soak the night before, and in the morning, breakfast is served! I like to add the Almonds right before I eat it so they’re not soggy.
