Are you a foodie? I’m not sure if I am one or not. I’m afraid that anyone who likes vegan monkey bread as much as I do may not be classified as a top-tier foodie. But then again, I love this grilled chocolate sandwich and it’s definitely foodie material. But how could you not love buttery, grilled bread with dark chocolate, peanut butter, and raspberries in the middle?

Key Ingredients

You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.

  • Lemon — We’ll use both the zest and the juice of the lemon.
  • Oats — I used rolled oats for this recipe, but you can substitute instant oats.
  • Chia — We’ll add some ground chia seeds to create a thicker texture. You can use whole chia seeds; I just prefer ground because it creates a smoother finished texture.
  • Syrup — I used maple syrup, but you can substitute agave nectar.
  • Milk — We’ll use almond milk for the best overnight oats! Substitute your favorite plant-based milk.
  • Yogurt — I love adding some plant-based yogurt (plain, unsweetened) for an even more tangy flavor.
  • Protein Powder — I add some vanilla protein powder for increased flavor and nutrients. If your protein powder is not sweetened, you may want to add an extra teaspoon or two of sweetener.
  • Cornstarch — We’ll use cornstarch to thicken the lemon curd topping.
  • Turmeric — A pinch of turmeric makes that lemon curd sunny yellow.
  • Vegan butter — You can use any dairy-free vegan butter or margarine, or make your own homemade vegan butter.
  • Bread — I think artisan slices of French bread or sourdough bread are the best, but any bread slices will do.
  • Peanut butter — A small (or large) smear of peanut butter helps the chocolate chips stay in place. To make a chocolate grilled cheese sandwich, substitute a slice of white vegan cheese (like mozzarella or jack cheese) in place of the peanut butter. Chocolate and cheese is a marvelous combination!
  • Chocolate chips —  Use this dairy-free chocolate chips guide to find your favorite brand!
  • Raspberries — Adding a few fresh raspberries is certainly optional, but highly recommended. You can substitute your favorite jellies or even this chia seed jam.

    Ok, I’m in love…with you AND this sandwich! Since I didn’t have any Daiya provolone at home this was made with daiya Havarti (yes the garlic and jalapeno one) instead. One might think it wouldn’t work, but it DID! Wow, this was so yummy and I can’t wait to make it again and again! Thank you for sharing!

    Sweet! We just started getting those provolone slices and I’ve been eating them in regular old boring sandwiches like some kind of sucker, this sounds WAY better!

      Boring Sandwiches with vegan provolone cheese? Umm, I don’t think that’s possible!

      That said…I agree that cheese and chocolate are a better combination! 😉

    HOLY MOTHER OF ALL THINGS GOOD!!!!!!! Making this RIGHT NOW! I wish we would get all the fancy varieties of Daiya that are available to the US. Canadians are stuck with Cheddar and Mozzarella!

      Well, this might work with the either of those cheese flavors. Give it a try!
