With optional garnishes like peanut butter and red grapes, you can customize your oats to suit your taste, making each spoonful a unique delight.


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or your choice of milk)

  • 1 tablespoon organic cacao powder

  • 1 ripe banana, mashed

  • 1 tablespoon almonds, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional, for extra nutrition)

  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)

  • Optional garnishes: 1 tablespoon peanut butter, a handful of red grapes (halved), extra slices of banana


Step 1: Mix the Ingredients

In a mason jar or a bowl, combine the rolled oats, almond milk, organic cacao powder, mashed banana, chopped almonds, chia seeds (if using), and honey or maple syrup. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Step 2: Refrigerate Overnight

Cover the jar or bowl with a lid or plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 6 hours. This allows the oats to soak up the liquid and flavors, becoming soft, creamy, and delicious.

Step 3: Add Garnishes and Serve

In the morning, give your oats a good stir. If the mixture is too thick, you can add a little more milk to reach your desired consistency. Top your overnight oats with a dollop of peanut butter, halved red grapes, and extra banana slices for additional texture and flavor.

Chef's Notes:

  • Customization: Feel free to customize the toppings according to your preferences. Other great options include coconut flakes, a sprinkle of cacao nibs, or a dash of cinnamon for extra warmth and spice.

  • Nutrition Boost: For an added nutritional boost, consider stirring in a scoop of your favorite protein powder or collagen peptides with the almond milk before adding the other ingredients.

  • Storage: Overnight oats can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, making them a perfect option for meal prep. Simply prepare a few servings in advance, and enjoy a quick and healthy breakfast throughout the week.

  • Serving Suggestion: For a more indulgent breakfast or a dessert-like treat, drizzle a little chocolate syrup over the top before serving.
