Almond Joy Oatmeal {GF}

This Almond Joy Oatmeal is healthy take on Almond Joy candy and makes a delicious breakfast. 

I usually don’t make stovetop oatmeal, I’ve never been a fan. I really enjoy baking it though like I do in my Black Forest Baked Oatmeal or my Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal (which is one of the most popular recipes on the blog).

Lately though I have been giving regular oatmeal a chance. Well, I guess I can’t say I’ve been making any old oatmeal – I’ve been playing around with different flavors because basic oatmeal can be kind of boring (for me anyway).

Almond Joy Oatmeal

My first thought when making a flavored oatmeal was to do peanut butter and chocolate. I love that flavor combo but as I’ve done something similar (pb & chocolate overnight oats anyone?) I figured I’d give some other flavors some love.

My other go-to flavoring is almond but again, I didn’t want to just switch out the peanut butter for almond. After thinking about flavors I love, I remembered a tasty candy that I haven’t had in forever – Almond Joys – so I decided to make me some almond joy oatmeal.

Every time I think of almond joy’s, I sing that “sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t” song. Do you too or am I the only one? How long ago was that commercial on?

How to Make Oatmeal

I never really knew how easy oatmeal is to make. Heat up some milk, throw in the oats and you’re basically done!

My almond joy oatmeal also includes coconut as well as some sweetener. You have a choice of sweetener for this dish: banana or maple syrup. I like the idea of using banana and sweetening with fruit but it did taste a little “banana-y” – not that that is a bad thing, but some people are not banana people.

I also have made this with maple syrup and it is just as tasty. It’s your call on which you’d rather use and both are good in my book.
