DIRECTIONS:

1. Combine the rolled oats, almond milk, sweetener, cocoa powder, and coconut in an 8 ounce jar or resealable plastic container. Refrigerate the oatmeal mixture for at least 6 hours (or up to 2 days). 

2. Remove oatmeal from the refrigerator and top with the pecans just before enjoying.

COOKS NOTES:

Using 1 tablespoon of a stevia brown sugar blend (such as truvia brown sugar blend) in this recipe instead of pure stevia or another zero calorie natural sweetener makes it truly taste like a german chocolate treat. It’s yummy enough for dessert, but it also adds 5 g of sugar per serving. You can make a few servings with the brown sugar blend and keep them in the refrigerator for a few days to have on hand when a chocolate craving hits. For breakfast, I’d recommend sticking with a zero calorie natural sweetener.
