I have been meaning to make these chunky monkey overnight oats since my trip to Chicago last December for Quaker Summit where Quaker Oats introduced me and several other gluten free bloggers to their new gluten free oats.

When we were there, they served us breakfast which was a gigantic oatmeal bar. There was a biiiig old pot of hot oatmeal and it was accompanied by a buffet table of all kinds of toppings. Dried fruit, fresh fruit, chocolate, nut butters, all different kinds of milk, honey, maple syrup, nuts, and even savory items like Sriracha.

I made myself a bowl topped with bananas, chocolate chips, maple syrup, and walnuts and somebody made the Chunky Monkey comment. When I threw it together, I wasn’t even thinking that – I was just making what I thought would be super tasty.

I don’t usually eat hot oatmeal, I actually never cared for hot oatmeal as a kid and have always eaten my oatmeal cold. However, I really enjoyed my hot Chunky Monkey oatmeal but I like the overnight oat version better.

I’ve been a fan of overnight oats before overnight oats were even a thing. Some of my favorites, other than this version which is #1, are my peach pie overnight oats, black forest overnight oats, and Nutella overnight oats.

One thing that I really love about overnight oats are the texture. Since they’re not cooked, they’re not just a pile of mush. There’s still texture to them and, IMO, much better to eat. I also like that they’re still a little bit liquid-y – that flavored milk is the best part!

If you’re a Chunky Monkey ice cream fan, this healthy breakfast version will be right up your alley. It’s so jam packed with banana, walnuts, and dark chocolate chunks – it’s one delicious bite after another.

I like to top my oats with a little extra sliced banana, walnuts, and chocolate but you don’t have to. I also like to add an extra little drizzle of honey because honey is one of the best things ever. It’s one of my favorite natural sweeteners and I use it in all of my smoothies and overnight oats recipes.

Make these gluten free chunky monkey overnight oats tonight and you can have them for breakfast tomorrow. Enjoy!

Could I kindly ask how you came up with 118 cal per serving? The walnuts alone are over that per serving. I made these up to have for breakfast tomorrow morning but when I added up the calorie and carb content on my own it topped over 500 cal per serving.

I was wondering if you could warm them or add steamed milk to eat them hot?

I haven't tried it but you certainly could if you prefer it warm. Just add the banana after it's warm :)

I want to try this recipe but am allergic to all nuts, how important are the walnuts? TIA

The walnuts are part of what makes them "Chunky Monkey" but if you're allergic you can leave them out.
