Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk or other nondairy milk
  • 1/3 cup sweetened, dried cranberries
  • 1 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds or ground flaxseeds, optional
  • 2 Tbs. almond butter or peanut butter

Preparation

Combine oats, almond milk, cranberries, maple syrup, and chia seeds, if using, in bowl. Stir in almond butter. (No need to mix completely—it’s OK to leave streaks of almond butter throughout the oat mixture.) Cover, and refrigerate 6 hours, or overnight. Serve as is, or top with yogurt and banana.
