  • 1 medium banana mashed
  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup plain unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks


  • Mash the banana in a medium bowl.
  • Add the chocolate almond milk, rolled oats and chia seeds and stir everything together well.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove the bowl from the fridge in the morning and stir in the plain almond milk to loosen up the oats. If you want to, you can heat the oats up in the microwave if the thought of cold oatmeal is less than appealing to you. I really enjoy these oats cold from the fridge, especially now that the weather is warmer!
  • Divide the oats between two mason jars (or bowls, if you prefer) and serve with the sliced almonds and dark chocolate chunks on top!


For an even faster morning, simply divide the oat mixture between two mason jars before refrigerating it overnight. In the morning, just pour some plain almond milk on top and add some chocolate chunks and almond slices!
