This is an alternative way to eat oatmeal without waiting for it to cook in the morning. You can eat it chilled or warmed, and you can even bake it for cookies or bars. It makes a great dessert too! Feel free to substitute in the fruits and spices of your choice.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Vegan
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (fork works well)
  • ½ cup blueberries (or other berries of choice; frozen is fine)
  • 2 Tbsp currants or goji berries
  • handful of kale or other greens (optional)
  • ¾-1 cup almond or hemp milk (enough to coat all ingredients with a small amount
  • of liquid remaining).
  1. Stir together oats, chia seeds, vanilla powder (if using), and cinnamon in a small bowl or jar.
  2. Add in vanilla extract, berries, and dried fruit; stir again. Place banana and greens (if using) into a food processor and process thoroughly using the S blade.
  3. Pour banana mixture and almond/hemp milk over all ingredients and stir well.
  4. Add enough liquid so that only a small amount of liquid remains after stirring.
  5. Refrigerate overnight; the chia seeds absorb the liquid and thicken, giving a
  6. pudding-like consistency to the mixture.
  7. Eat as is or warm slightly to enjoy.
