No need to buy food from a cafe or take time out of your morning to prepare breakfast. These quick overnight oats are decadent, but are actually quite healthy and the perfect summer breakfast! Plus, they don’t require a stove and they make use of the incredible cherries in season 🙂 What more could you want?!
½ c. rolled oats
1 tbsp. chia seeds
2 tbsp. cacao powder
1 tsp. maple or honey
¼ tsp. salt
Pinch of vanilla
¾ c. coconut milk (or milk of choice)
Fresh cherries, pitted + chopped
Coconut yogurt (or other yogurt of choice)
Almond or peanut butter for topping (optional)
Pour your milk into a glass jar, then add in the oats, chia seeds, cacao, sweetener, salt and vanilla and stir well until combined. Leave this mixture in the fridge overnight. The next day, layer your oats with yogurt and fresh cherries, then top with more fruit and nut butter or other desired toppings. Enjoy!
