Equipment

  • 16-ounce mason jars
  • mason jar lids

Ingredients

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk can substitute any milk
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen dark sweet cherries pits removed
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground flaxseeds
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Start with the cherries. Remove the pits, if needed. Then chop the cherries or leave them whole.
  • Into the mason jar, add the oats, cinnamon, ground flaxseeds, and chia seeds. Give the ingredients a couple of stirs to mix.
  • Then stir in the coconut milk, vanilla extract, and pure maple syrup. The liquid needs to be covering the oats.
  • To the top of the oats, place the cherries.
  • Cover with the lid and put into the fridge overnight, at least 6 hours.
  • In the morning, give the overnight oats a couple of stirs and, if necessary, add a splash of coconut milk to loosen the oatmeal. Give it a taste and if you need extra sweetness, stir in a teaspoon of pure maple syrup.
