  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 2/3 - 3/4 cup almond milk , or your favorite milk for a non-vegan version - you can add half milk and half Greek yogurt for creaminess as well
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 very ripe mashed banana , or chopped if you prefer a chunkier texture
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup , or sub with your favorite liquid sweetener: Lakanto sugar-free maple syrup, coconut nectar syrup or honey (if not vegan)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp walnuts , chopped


  1. Add oats, milk, chia seeds,(and sweetener if desired) together in a mason jar, resealable container or a bowl.

    (If you like your oatmeal more creamier, you can add more milk and less if you like them on the chunkier side - you can also add an extra 2 tablespoons yogurt (dairy free if needed) to make them creamier).

  2. Add mashed banana, cinnamon and sweetener, if using.
  3. Shake jar or mix and combine with a spoon. Seal and chill in fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Serve with more milk as desired and top with fresh banana slices and walnuts before serving, if desired.
