  • ¾ cups rolled oats
  • 2 tbsps chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 tsp ground vanilla; or 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsps maple syrup
  • 1 cup milk of choice; add in more in the morning if needed
  • 2 tbsps cocoa powder


  • In food storage container, mix the dry ingredients to ensure no clumps form.
  • Add in the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Close lid and store in the fridge for at least 4 hours, overnight is preferred!
  • Eat cold in the morning (or for dessert!). Get creative and add your choice of toppings to make it like your own breakfast sundae!


  • Optional toppings can include walnuts, bananas, hemp seeds, chocolate chips.
  • I have tried this with almond milk, oat milk, and soy milk and found that I needed to add an extra 1/4-1/2 cup extra milk. You can also add it in the morning before you eat!
