Recipe Review – Brownie Batter Overnight Oatmeal


I saw this recipe come across my Facebook feed, and people were raving about it.  Tastes just like brownie batter they said.  So I had to try it.  It took me a while to get all the ingredients – but I finally made it last night.  It was easy enough to make, and the ingredients are not that uncommon, just not things I normally stock.

This morning it was nice to wake up with breakfast already made – so I am on the lookout for more make ahead breakfast ideas.  Hubby ate his at home and said it was not bad.  He said it was kinda like a treat.  But I noticed he didn’t eat all of it.  And he’s normally a member of the clean plate club.

I brought my bowl to work and heated it up in the microwave for a minute.  I tasted it, and thought it was a little bitter, so added a packet of Splenda.  It was certainly edible, but it was just a little too rich for breakfast.  And oatmeal is not my favorite of textures anyway.  I could only eat about 1/4th of it.  And tossed the rest.  Unfortunately, it looks like someone threw up in the trashcan at work.  /oops.

This recipe makes 2 large servings at 7 Weight Watcher Points Plus each.  I don’t normally eat 7 points for breakfast – and in the future, if I do make this again, I would divide it up into at least 4 or even 6 servings for even less points.
