  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter powder
  • pinch of salt

  • 1/41/2 cup almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • 1 tablespoon honey, maple syrup or agave nectar


  1. In a small jar, layer oats, chia seeds, peanut butter powder and a pinch of salt. Top with cacao nibs if using. Seal jar and store in a dry place up to 6 months.
  2. When ready to prepare, fill the jar almost to the top with the milk of your choice. Use more milk to make a runnier oatmeal, or use less milk to allow it to firm up more.
  3. Stir in the sweetener of your choice. Seal and shake jar.
  4. Leave overnight in the fridge to rest for at least 8 hours, up to 4 days. Enjoy cold.
