Big Bites Exclusive: Overnight Coconut Cream Pie Oats

Big Bites Exclusive: Overnight Coconut Cream Pie Oats

If you’re an aspiring meal prepper, overnight oats are a sensible place to start. They ask for only five minutes of prep before a sleep in the fridge transforms them into a creamy, nutrient-packed breakfast that’s ready to grab all week long. These Overnight Coconut Cream Pie Oats are my very favorite rendition and ever since Big Bites hit the shelves, it’s the breakfast recipe I hear rave reviews about most often! Made with fragrant coconut milk, a generous dose of vanilla, a warm hit of cinnamon, and toasted coconut for crunch, this was the recipe that transformed the way I look at overnight oats (don’t judge me, but I really didn’t get the hype!).

I use 16-ounce lidded glass jars for portioning these and serve them that way too. If you are as seduced by coconut as I am, they will soon become a favorite of yours as well.

A big thank you to Christine Han Photography for capturing this and all of my cookbook recipes so beautifully!

How To Make My Overnight Coconut Cream Pie Oats

Step 1. When portioning out the coconut milk, open the can and add the 8 ounces to a large mixing bowl. If the hard cream and water are separated, ensure you get some of both in there. Whisk for 10 to 20 seconds if needed to combine the two into a creamy milk.

Step 2. Add the almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, oats, chia seeds, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk briefly until well combined.

Step 3. Divide among four 16-ounce jars, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

Step 4. Serve topped with toasted coconut, or with berries when they are in season. The oats will keep in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days.

Step 5. Enjoy!

    I tried overnight oats a while ago and was not impressed. They just seemed so slimy and not fun.
    I think overnight oats are always going to be slimy, but these taste fantastic! Like the best slimy oats EVER. Maybe it’s the magic of the toasted coconut but there is definitely something magical about them.
    I made half of a batch (just in case) and will be making more. I woke up this morning and my first thought was ‘yeah! I get to eat them again!’

    I made them at night time. My first one I tried, the following morning, was still a little runny (enough that I drank the last bit in there), but day two they were nice and thick.

    • I was never a fan of overnight oats either Allison, and I think texture really does put people off, but the flavor of these really made it all make sense – I’m glad I’m not the only one!!
      Enjoy,
      Kat.
