Ingredients

Oats

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce or half of a ripe banana
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch ground ginger
  • pinch ground nutmeg
  • pinch fine grain sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats I use gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk unsweetened

Toppings

  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts or seeds
  • 1/4 cup berries

Instructions

  1. Mash the banana in the bottom of a mason jar or mug with a spoon until it’s the consistency of applesauce. OR pour applesauce into bottom of jar.

  2. Add spices, chia seeds, salt, vanilla, oats and raisins to banana mash and stir to mix everything together.

  3. Add almond milk and stir until all ingredients are combined. It will seem watery. That’s normal! The chia seeds and oats will absorb the liquid, and it will thicken up overnight, so just give it time.

  4. Store jar or mug in the fridge overnight, and everything will gel together.

  5. Remove from fridge in the morning and top with or stir in your choice of nuts, seeds, nut butter and/or berries (I used slivered almonds and blackberries!).

Recipe Notes

Optional/additional add-ins: 2 teaspoons almond butter or peanut butter, shredded unsweetened coconut, or sliced bananas, peaches or any other fruit you like!
