Cherry Coconut Overnight Oats
Creamy coconut overnight oats, served with cherry chia jam. Perfectly sweetened with fruit only and filled with fiber and healthy fats. This nutritious breakfast is sure to fill you up for hours! Serve with nut butter and shredded coconut for added flavor.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 can (14 oz/400ml) low-fat coconut milk
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 small banana
- 1/2 cup cherry jam, or more to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Nut butter
- Cherries, pitted
- Shredded coconut, unsweetened
In a bowl or glass storage container with lid, mash the banana. Stir in the rolled oats, coconut milk, vanilla and chia seeds until thoroughly combined.
Cover and let soak in the fridge overnight. The mixture will thicken and soften.
After soaking, stir the oats and add milk to thin if the oats are too thick to your liking. Use your milk of choice.
Serve with cherry chia jam (about 1/4 cup per bowl), fresh cherries, shredded coconut and nut butter if desired. Almond butter and sunbutter are my favorites in this recipe.
I use this recipe for cherry chia jam, but feel free to use the jam of your choice. If using a sweetened jam, you won't need as much.
