  • For the chia jam:
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup pitted cherries I used frozen cherries
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • For the overnight oats:
  • 1 cup rolled oats I used organic whole grain rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk or any milk of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup optional, I skipped this
  • To garnish:
  • Chopped pitted cherries chopped dates, chopped almonds


  • In a saucepan on medium heat, let the chia seeds cook with the pitted cherries and maple syrup for 4 mins.
  • Take off the heat once cooked, cover the pan, and let it cool overnight.
  • Separately, in a bowl, combine the oats and milk.
  • Keep the bowl covered overnight.
  • To serve, layer the oats and the jam, and top with the chopped fruit and nuts.


If you prefer a sweeter version of oats, flavor it with some maple syrup, and add a dash of vanilla extract, before mixing in the milk.
