INGREDIENTS

1 1/3c quick rolled oats

2 tbsp chia seeds

1c Yoggu coconut yogurt

2tbsp almond butter

1.5 very ripe banana

1/2 tsp vanilla

2tsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 cup oat milk

pinch (or two!) of salt

1/2tbsp coconut oil 

1/4 cup chocolate chips


INSTRUCTIONS

  • put chocolate chips and coconut oil into a small double boiler or a small aluminum or glass bowl that can fit inside a slightly larger saucepan with about an inch of water at the bottom 

  •  turn heat to medium-low, stir occasionally, and adjust heat if needed so as not to come to a boil

  • while the chocolate is melting, set out 4 vessels (I use 500ml mason jars

  • on a plate mash the banana to be as smooth as possible and then put it into a medium bowl

  • in this bowl add in the maple syrup, yogurt, and vanilla. Mix well

  • scoop about half of this mixture into a smaller bowl and set it aside 

  • Now in the medium bowl add the oats, oat milk, cinnamon, salt, and chia seeds. be sure to combine well so that there are no dry clumps of oats 

  • Using a spoon that will fit into your jars, scoop the oat mixture into the jars as evenly as possible. 

  • *I don't like to pack the oats in there so as to give them room to expand but I will tamp the jars on a towel on the counter once or twice to help them settle in* 

  • *also, the chocolate should be ready by now so carefully take the chocolate out of the hot water and set it aside to cool a bit*

  • Into the small bowl that was set aside add the almond butter and mix well. 

  • scoop this mixture evenly on top of your oats 

  • Once the chocolate has cooled enough to touch but not too much to have gotten clumps, carefully spoon a layer on top of your layered oats. This is where you can add as much or as little as you want - making it a breakfast or a dessert! 

  • Let this sit for about 5 more minutes and then you can sprinkle on some coarse salt to make it look a little fancy and also extra delicious!

  • put your oats in the fridge overnight and enjoy them within 4 days!
