Healthy Coconut Cream Pie Overnight Dessert Oats

These Coconut Cream Pie Overnight Dessert Oats taste like a slice of Coconut Cream Pie swirled into a bowl of oatmeal!  This decadent breakfast is the farthest thing from those heavily processed, boring packets of oats at the grocery store…  this has flavor, this has texture, this has truly healthy ingredients!  No refined sugars, no artificial flavorings, no preservatives and no trans fats.

EHEM…  I’m looking at you Quaker.  So let’s all skip the storebought oatmeal that’s been super processed and “watered down” with cheap, low quality ingredients and make some healthy oatmeal right at home!  This is a really simple recipe that takes just a few minutes to prepare.  You just leave it in the fridge overnight and breakfast is all done and ready for you by morning.  How awesome is that?!

I love rolling out of bed knowing that the only thing I need to do to get some breakfast in my face is open my refrigerator door 😉

These easy, healthy Coconut Cream Pie Overnight Dessert Oats are packed with vitamins, minerals, whole grains, fiber, and protein…  yet it tastes like dessert.

And last time I checked, dessert for breakfast is THE way to go.

Just for sh**s and giggles I was looking at Quaker’s instant oatmeal ingredients…  what the heck is “banana flake powder” and why are there partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats) in OATS??  Oats are supposed to be healthy for crying out loud!  Ugh.

Anyways, after looking at this recipe’s nutrition label, it sure sounds like a healthy breakfast to me!  If you want a boost of protein, use organic soy milk instead of the almond milk, or add a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder (if you use a vegan protein powder, you will need to increase the milk by about ¼ cup).  And if you’re not vegan, just swirl in some plain Greek yogurt!

Who knew breakfast could be such a treat?!

  1. Is coconut butter different from coconut oil?

    • Helen-
      Yup! Coconut butter is the white coconut flesh all ground up, while coconut oil is just the oil extracted from the coconut flesh. Coconut butter contains fat and fiber, and a small amount of carbs and protein, while coconut oil is just fat.
      Coconut butter also has a more pronounced coconut flavor 🙂
      Hope this helps, and I hope you get to try out the recipe!

    My mother has dementia and coconut oil is part of her daily treatment (1 1/2 tbsp 3x day) I bet she would love this and I am always looking for new ways to guve it to her. How could I incorporate coconut oil into this? Thanks!

    • Jennifer Holliday-
      I’m glad you’ve found that coconut oil is good for your mother!
      Coconut butter is actually comprised of coconut oil and the flesh of the coconut, so this recipe should work out pretty well for you 🙂
      If you’d like to increase the amount of coconut oils in the recipe, you can add a tablespoon of melted coconut oil (or an extra 2 tablespoons of melted coconut butter).
      I hope your mother likes the recipe! 🙂

  4. This looks incredible! One question however: I noticed in the instructions you mentioned stirring the coconut cream concentrate/coconut butter together. The ingredients just list coconut butter. Are you using coconut cream as well or solely coconut butter? Either way I am absolutely making this. So excited for a dairy free oatmeal breakfast. Yum!

    • Coconut cream concentrate and coconut butter are the same thing, they both solidify when they’re cold 🙂
      I think when I first made this recipe I used coconut cream concentrate, and the next few times I used coconut butter.  Both are delicious!  Hope you like the recipe  😀

      • Thank you for explaining this! I’ve seen coconut cream sold in cans but never realized it was the same as the jarred coconut butter. You’re right: I made this and it was divine 🙂
