This Chocolate Pecan Coconut Overnight Oats recipe is my favorite that I have come up with so far during my new overnight oat obsession. The flavors are inspired by those chocolate-coconut candy bars that I used to love as a kid, but made with pure healthy ingredients that make it a deliciously nutritious way to start the day.
I love that it really fills you up and satisfies any morning sweet tooth. Since it has a great balance of whole-grain carbohydrates, plant proteins, and healthy fats it keeps you feeling strong and energized all morning! It takes only a couple of minutes to throw together at night and in the morning you have a nutty, chocolatey breakfast to enjoy at home or on the run.
These chocolate pecan overnight oats are great fuel for a workout and also make a fabulous healthy snack or dessert. They keep a few days in the fridge so it’s nice to double or triple the recipe so you have them ready to enjoy anytime.
