Overnight Chocolate Oats:

Ingredients:

1 cup SILK coconut milk (or almond/cashew milk)

½ cup of dry Old Fashion or Rolled Oats

1 tsp chia seeds

2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (Wholefoods)

2 turns of crushed pink Himalayan sea salt crystals (Trader Joe’s)

1 TBSP Natural Almond/Peanut Butter (0ptional)

1 tsp of pure Vanilla Extract

7 drops of stevia or 1 tsp pure maple syrup (exclude for diabetics)

1 tbsp naturally sweetened chocolate chips (Wholefoods, Trader Joe’s)

Directions:

  1. Add oats, chia seeds, flaxseed meal, cocoa powder, pink Himalayan salt (optional), chocolate chips to a 12 oz mason jar. Make several jars for the week, seal the jars, and store at room temperature until ready to use.
  2. The night before you are ready for oatmeal add all your wet ingredients (coconut milk, vanilla extract, sweetener, natural almond butter).
  3. Seal the jar and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, stir the oatmeal.  Soaking the oatmeal overnight allows the chia seeds to hydrate, swell up and offer the oatmeal a pudding consistency.
  4. If you do not like your oatmeal cold (like me), then briefly warm it up in the microwave for 1-1.5 minute(s) or until chocolate chips melt.
