What ingredients do I need?

The ingredient list is simple and you can see my favourites in the “shop the recipe” section below.

For the oats:

  • Oats: make sure these are gluten-free where needed.
  • Boiling water: softens and breaks down the oats and makes for the creamiest blend.
  • Vegan chocolate protein powder: this adds so much texture, flavour and natural sweetness to the mix. My go-to is the chocolate hazelnut from Macromike but they have so many other chocolate proteins to choose from like Chocolate Caramel, Deluxe Chocolate and Chocolate Honeycomb – my go AMB-AMY saves you 10% off everything.
  • Cacao mushroom blend or cacao powder: I love the Dirtea cacao mushroom blend for added mushroom goodness (without any mushroom flavour) as it’s super chocolatey, too. You can similarly use cacao or unsweetened 100% cocoa powder.
  • Banana: make sure the banana is ripe for the sweetest, smoothest blend. If you don’t like banana, you can swap this for applesauce or more yoghurt.
  • Seeds: I use chia and flaxseeds for thickening the mix as well as a boost of nutrition and hemp seeds for their goodness, too.
  • Desiccated coconut: for adding that bounty bar flavour.
  • Thick coconut yoghurt: my go-to is Cocos Organic as it’s thick and creamy and blends really well. Either use a natural or vanilla one here.
  • Plant-based milk: use your favourite dairy-free milk, I love oat or almond but coconut, soya or rice milk are great.
  • Cacao nibs and flaked coconut: for stirring in at the end. These add great crunch and texture to the otherwise smooth blend. If you don’t have cacao nibs, you can swap these for a handful of chocolate chips.

For the layers:

  • Coconut yoghurt: as above.
  • Dark chocolate: I like to melt some dark chocolate and pour on top of the yoghurt and allow to set for a fun chocolate shell. I use a low-sugar coconut chocolate but you can use any chocolate or swap for cocoa powder or leave off all together.

Is this recipe gluten-free and nut-free?

Yes these oats are gluten-free as long as your oats are certified free-from gluten and keep this nut-free by using nut-free milk, yoghurt, protein powder and chocolate.

How do I make this?

These oats are so easy to make:

  • Soak the oats in boiling water: this works to soften the oats, making them easier to digest when you eat them.
  • Add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor: and blend till smooth. I have a Magimix food processor.
  • Stir in the flaked coconut and cacao nibs: for crunch and texture.
  • Spoon some yoghurt into jars and top with the oats: to reach almost the top.
  • Add on some extra yoghurt and melted chocolate: allow to set or enjoy semi-set.
  • Grab a spoon and dive in: or keep for the next day.
