  • 3 cups oat milk or other milk of choice (e.g. almond milk)
  • 1 tbs pure maple syrup or to taste
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 3 tbs chia seeds
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Dash of salt optional
  • Toppings as desired such as berries, banana, nuts, peanut butter, chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, combine the oat milk and pure maple syrup. Add the rolled oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine evenly.
  • Transfer the mixture to storage containers. I like to divide it into 4 portions using mason jars. One cup jars will be filled to the top, or pint jars will be halfway full.
  • Refrigerate the chia oatmeal overnight. In the morning, microwave the mixture for up to a minute if desired. (This can also be eaten cold.) Top with your favorite oatmeal toppings, such as berries, banana, dried fruit, nuts, peanut butter, and coconut flakes. These jars of oatmeal can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.
