overnight refrigerator oats with almond butter and cacao nibs
Prep time
Total time
One of my favorite "grab-and-go" healthy breakfasts! It's vegan and gluten-free to boot!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1 serving
  • ¾ - 1 cup almond milk, oat milk, or coconut milk- I used my vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons chia seed
  • ΒΌ cup gluten-free steel-cut oats, or rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao nibs
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 heaping tablespoon almond or peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
  1. Get out a small glass jar with a lid, or glass container with a lid.
  2. Pour in the almond milk, chia seed, oats, cacao nibs, coconut, almond butter, maple syrup, and a pinch of sea salt.
  3. Give the mixture a good stir to incorporate the almond butter.
  4. Put a lid on, and store it in the refrigerator till morning.
  5. I usually make a couple of these, as they last for 3 days.
  6. The mixture will thicken up overnight, thanks to the chia, so if you want it thinner, then add a bit of milk.
  7. Twist off the lid and give the oats a good stir before consuming!
  8. I usually toss the oats in a microwave for 1-minute and then give them a stir. It's a great way to have warm oats on a cold morning.
