Chocolate Chia Overnight Oat Parfaits
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
  • ⅓ cup rolled oats
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I use homemade almond milk)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon cacao powder
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup, divided
  • ½ a small banana, sliced
  • 2–3 strawberries, sliced
  • Sprinkle of dried mulberries, raisins, granola, or toasted nuts
  1. In a large mason jar, combine oats, chia seeds, non-dairy milk, and vanilla. Stir or shake with the lid on, and store it overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. In the morning, take a look at your overnight oats and give them a stir. If they are too thick for your tastes, add a few Tablespoons of almond milk. (I like it to be thicker!)
  3. Stir cacao powder and 1 Tablespoon maple syrup into the top half of the oats.
  4. Top with banana, strawberries, mulberries or other toppings, and the remaining 1 Tablespoon maple syrup.
  5. Put the lid on it and go! Don’t forget to bring a spoon. :P
  6. Keeps in the refrigerator for 3–4 days.
