How to Enjoy Salted Caramel and Chocolate for Breakfast

This post & recipe will show you How to Enjoy Salted Caramel and Chocolate for Breakfast without any of the guilt! Seriously there are healthy things in here, you won’t even feel a little bit guilty for this small indulgence. And lets face it this still probably has less calories in it than that bowl of store bought chocolate cereal you are currently enjoying. So I see this recipe as a real win – win for everyone 😉 And we all deserve a little indulgence now and again.


A little while ago while I was doing very early morning commutes to work I was having to take my breakfast with me. I needed something easy to carry, simple to prepare and which didn’t take too much effort. I really am not a morning person. I have shared my maple banana overnight oats with you already, and I nearly forgot about this bad boy recipe until I came across the photo’s in my library and just knew I had to share this with you.


Welcome to your new breakfast addiction 😀

How to Enjoy Salted Caramel and Chocolate for Breakfast!

Who doesn’t dream of eating caramel for breakfast? Or is that just me? Okay then…… it’s just me! But if you think about it this dish is not loaded with it, it has just enough to give it that smooth satisfying salty sweet taste.

The extra dollop on top is completely optional but highly recommended 😀 This time I used a shop bought salted caramel sauce but I do have a wonderful recipe for homemade salted caramel sauce if you want to give it a go. It’s simple and super delicious and I often make this and keep a stash of it in the fridge for when the cravings hit. But sometimes its just easier to buy a tub, depends on my mood. I am all for kitchen shortcuts and this is a really great one to use.


The chocolate chips are also optional if you want to keep this a little more healthy, and white, milk or dark chocolate work great.

Not Vegan! But it is Gluten Free

I used almond milk for my overnight oats because I love it’s sweet creamy flavour. Unlike my maple banana overnight oats this dish is not vegan as the salted caramel sauce has cream in it. I am not even sure if such a thing exists. Maybe I should try making some and see what happens! But because I used certified Gluten Free oats and checked all my other ingredients this dish is gluten free. So if you have a gluten intolerance you can still enjoy this dish 😀


But as with any recipe if you have any allergies please read the ingredients list carefully and be careful about what ingredients you do use. I am certainly no gluten free expert, matter of fact I am the furthest thing from it.


The great thing about these overnight oats recipes including this one is the fridge does all the hard work for you. You whip everything together just before you head to bed for the night and hey presto in the morning you have a dish all prepared and ready to go. See I promised you I would show you how to enjoy salted caramel and chocolate for breakfast without any of the guilt 😉

Total time
A smooth and creamy breakfast packed full of oats and flavoured with salted caramel and chocolate chips. {Gluten Free}

  1. Anything that lets me eat caramel for breakfast is a winner. It was possibly one of my favourite things about travelling in parts of South America – dulche de leche being served with breakfast 😉

    For a vegan version you could definitely sub with a dairy-free cream; Oatly do a fab oat-based cream!
