  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (GF if desired)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 tsp. chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp. almond extract
  • 1-2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup


  • Combine all ingredients except oats in a small bowl or jar. Stir to combine.
  • Add oats, gently stir, and make sure they’re all fully submerged.
  • Cover and place in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
  • Enjoy as is or top with banana, berries, granola, nut butters, etc. before serving.


I use unsweetened plain almond milk for this recipe. Adjust the syrup as desired depending on how much sweetness you like (or if you’re using a sweetened milk). You may find you need a little less vanilla if you’re using a vanilla flavored milk.
The almond extract is strong so be sure to only use the 1/8 tsp. otherwise it can overpower.
