⏲ Total Time
6.00 hours

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🥛 0.75 cup almond milk
  • 🧈 2 Tbsp almond butter
  • 🍁 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 🌱 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 🍦 0.5 tsp vanilla
  • 🌾 0.5 cup oats
  • 🍫 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 🧂 1 pinch salt

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 mason jar
  • 1 spoon

📝 Instructions

Step 1

To a mason jar or small bowl with a lid, add almond milk (or other milk of choice), almond butter, maple syrup (or other sweetener), chia seeds, and vanilla and stir with a spoon to combine and distribute the almond butter evenly.

Step 2

Add oats, cocoa powder, and salt (optional) and mix well to incorporate the cocoa powder. Then press down with a spoon to ensure all oats have been moistened and are immersed in almond milk.

Step 3

Cover securely with a lid or seal and set in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 6 hours) to set/soak.

Step 4

The next day, open and enjoy as is or garnish with desired toppings (see suggestions above).

Step 5

OPTIONAL: You can also heat your oats in the microwave for 45-60 seconds (just ensure there’s enough room at the top of your jar to allow for expansion and prevent overflow and that you’ve used a microwave-safe jar or bowl), or transfer oats to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until warmed through. Add more liquid as needed if oats get too thick/dry.

Step 6

Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, though best within the first 12-24 hours in our experience. Not freezer friendly.
