About the Recipe


  • 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


  • 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!
