Servings: 4 people
- 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!
