Healthy White Chocolate and Macadamia Oatmeal Pudding

I have weird quirks. I admit it. One in particular, is my preferred method of eating oatmeal.

Oatmeal (or porridge, as it is often referred to in Australia) is the ultimate comfort breakfast known to human kind. There is nothing more satisfying than digging into a big bowl of steaming hot oats topped with literally any mix ins possible. Some of my favourite kinds of oatmeal include a sweet and salty chocolate peanut butter oatmeal (with hidden veggies!), a blended tofu oat bran, chocolate protein oatmeal and even savoury oatbran with a hit of vegemite.


However, the way I eat oatmeal is a taste sensation like no other- I always prep the oatmeal the night before and eat it cold. Not overnight oatmeal style (there is no added yogurt in this), but eaten as it is. The texture resembles a pudding and that, my friends, epitomizes eating dessert for breakfast. Healthy style.

Long term readers know I’m a fan on converting desserts to breakfasts foods. I made keto pancakes and then also turned the infamous lamington into these breakfast classics too. My new victim? My all time favourite cookie in oatmeal form.

The amount of money I spent on Subway white chocolate and macadamia cookies would probably buy me a Vitamix had I saved all those dollars. However, those cookies were so damn worth it. I also probably just committed a foodie sin just then. C’est la vie. I’m not one to falsely advertise my recipes as tasting or emulating something they are not.

This, however, is like eating my all time favourite cookie… oatmeal pudding form. Before you ask, of course this can be eaten warm but please- remove the pudding from its title if you do. Oh snap.

Dig in…and know your eating something filling, healthy but most importantly- damn delicious.

The infamous subway cookie which is converted to a healthy, delicious oatmeal breakfast!
Servings: 1


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats use GF oats for gluten free option
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dairy free milk of choice
  • 1 scoop of white chocolate or vanilla protein powder optional*
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2-3 tablespoon dairy free white chocolate chips divided
  • 2-3 tablespoon chopped macadamia nuts divided
  • Sea salt


  • Combine raw oats with salt and milk and either cook over the stovetop or in a microwave until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Stir in the protein powder, vanilla extract, half a serving of the white chocolate chips and half a serving of the chopped macadamia nuts. The white chocolate chips should melt. Once this is completed, refrigerate uncovered.
  • The next morning, stir around the oatmeal- it should be a pudding like consistency. Top with the remaining white chocolate chips and chopped macadamias and sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Dig in!


The protein powder is optional- If you do not have either of those flavours or not a fan of using protein powder, adjust the amount of chocolate chips to the higher end or to desired sweetness.

  1. I like my oatmeal both hot and cold – it depends on my mood! I’ve never cooked it the night before though. If I’m having cold oatmeal, I’ll just combine the ingredients into a bowl and let it sit overnight in the fridge. I bet it’s the fact that you cook it at night that gives it such a pudding-y texture… I’m intrigued and definitely want to try this!

  2. i seriously think you and the kiwi share the same taste buds! he would die over this! and it reminds me of rice pudding we used to get in NZ.

    1. You need to make him (and yourself!) a batch. Ask him his thoughts on wagon wheel pancakes. 😉

  3. I’m not particular about my oatmeal texture unless it’s chewy and rubbery like calamari which I hate….I don’t think that’s even possible?!

    I used to love subway until the whole yoga mat debacle. Do you guys get their new commercials where they talk about all of the toxic chemicals they’ve removed from their foods? I just imagine myself doing yoga on a sub and it makes me laugh.

    White chocolate totally negates any kind of healthy but i’ll let it slide this time cause I’m wearing my horrid yellow shirt today. BYE.

    1. Urgh, that calamari texture is the worst. Off topic, but you should work out the perfect way to make calamari- it’s so easy to hit that rubber spot.

      Yoga mat debacle? Here, we have a song that goes ‘I got it made. I got it made. I got it made at Subwayyyyy.’

  4. I’ve never actually been to Subway. Odd, I know because I think there about 15 of them within a four mile radius of my apartment.

    Although I enjoy oatmeal it has been ages since I had a bowl. It is just too, too filling. If I have it for breakfast I am not hungry for the rest of the day. I have had overnight oats which are, at best, mediocre but cold porridge, never. I am intrigued at your description of a pudding-esque consistency. I like pudding. I really like pudding. Tempted to try this ingenious concoction.

    Have a terrific weekend!

    1. LOL- I think that is standard to have that many in such a radius! I promise this is a pudding like texture, and if your not a fan of white chocolate- I have another up my sleeve which you may prefer! 😉

  5. I am going to try this but with dark chocolate chips and walnuts! If I get addicted…it’s all on you! 🙂

  6. Ooooooh good idea! I used to love those cookies from subway. Who am I kidding….I still do.

  7. I can actually make this! I have all the ingredients on hand for the first time in my life! Woooo! Thanks Arman!

  8. OMG yes – those Subway cookies are ridiculously amazing!! The healthy side of my brain doesn’t want to like them, but I do :). And how did I miss that hidden veggie oatmeal recipe?!? Yum!

    1. Hahaha oh Megan. I owe you an email. Also, I hope egg whites and cauliflower are tolerable for you because I have a recipe which is a ‘hidden veggie’ fan’s dream.

  9. Mmmm!! I love white chocolate macadamia cookies, so this oatmeal sounds to die for! I need to buy white chocolate chips and some macadamia nuts, then I’ll have all the ingredients to make this and I can’t wait!

  10. Ohhh my goodness, A. You had me at the word PUDDING. I am totally like you in the sense that oats are way better when in overnight, cold, pudding form. I mean, who can beat that texture? But add in some white chocolate chips and boom, you’ve just made this way better. Ugh, another oatmeal recipe to add to my repertoire of oatmeal obsessions… Thanks a lot. 😉

    1. The texture is amazing, and I have another up my sleeve to be posted soon- Although need to rack my brains to Vegan it up for you 😉

  11. So I have done there before but calling it pudding makes it ten times more genius. I am not a huge fan of yogurt in my overnight oats,, and when you leave it out there is just no volume, so cooking them and eating them cold is the perfect solution. Off to find white chocolate chips that aren’t ridden with stomach-hating dairy…

  12. The white chocolate and macadamia cookie from Subway will always be the absolute best one they have, and pretty much my main motive for eating at Subway when I was younger. So good.
    As for oatmeal, I like to cook it an extra few minutes to get it as thick as possible – no soupy oatmeal allowed.

  13. This sounds amazing but unfortunately I have given up oats…. again, for the third time….. damn them making me bloat!

  14. YUM!!! My cookies do NOT come from Subway! 🙂 I like my oatmeal think – no runny for me!
