1 jar of oats


  • 1 banana, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond butter, or more to taste

  • 1 ½ teaspoons chia seeds

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place 3 to 4 slices of banana in the bottom of a jar. Layer 1 1/2 teaspoon of almond butter, 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds, and 1/2 cup oats on top. Repeat layering remaining almond butter, chia seeds, and oats, leaving a 1-inch gap at the top.

  2. Mix almond milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Pour over oats, leaving a 1/2-inch gap at the top to allow oats to expands as they soak. Push a knife or fork vertically through the jar to make sure milk mixture soaks all the way through.

  3. Cover jar tightly and refrigerate until oats are moist, 4 hours to overnight.

Cook's Note:

Substitute any unsweetened nut milk for the almond milk if desired.
