Protein-Packed Almond Joy Oatmeal

Incredibly chocolatey and protein-packed. This Almond Joy oatmeal is warm, delightful, and filled with delicious ingredients. Topped with Built Puffs, coconut chips, dark chocolate chunks, chopped almonds, and a drizzle of almond butter. While we all can’t have a chocolate bar for breakfast, this oatmeal is a pretty close second to that, except it’s good for you.

Protein-Packed Almond Joy Oatmeal

I’m not usually a big breakfast person but, I always make it a point to start with protein. I enjoy a good bowl of oatmeal though sometimes, oatmeal can be plain. That’s why it is often the last choice for most people.

Honestly, I love it.

It’s warm and versatile and you can top it with endless toppings. Plus, it will keep you full until lunch.

This oatmeal is protein-packed because it’s topped with good for you ingredients and my favourite protein bars, Built Puffs from Built Bars. The world’s first-ever chocolate-covered marshmallow bar!

I made these oats super chocolatey because I love almond joy bars. So, I added coconut chips, dark chocolate chunks, chopped almonds, Built Bar Puffs chunks, and almond butter drizzle.

How to Make Almond Joy Oatmeal

What truly makes this oatmeal are the toppings. To make the oatmeal itself is very simple.

Step 1: Cook the Oatmeal

Over medium heat, add milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup into a small saucepan. Use a whisk to incorporate completely.

Mix in rolled oats until evenly coated. Add a pinch of salt and vanilla extract. Stir for 7-10 minutes or until desired consistency is achieved. Set aside and cool for 2-5 minutes.

Step 2: Serve and Add Toppings

Separate into two bowls. In each bowl, top with 2 tablespoons of chopped almonds, 2 tablespoons of chopped dark chocolate, 2 tablespoons of coconut chips, and 1 sliced Built Puffs and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of almond butter. Serve.

What Are Built Puffs?

They are the world’s first protein marshmallow, covered in 100% real chocolate with 16g of protein and only 130 calories.

They’re available in Vanilla, Strawberry, and Coconut. If you’re on WW like me, you’ll find that Built Puffs come out to be 3 points! SO good!
