  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk whatever type you prefer
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter or 2 tablespoons powdered peanut butter
  • 6 pitted cherries cut in half or quartered
  • 1 teaspoon cacao nibs


  1. Combine all the dry ingredients first (except for the cacao nibs) in a mason jar or airtight container. Add the milk, Greek yogurt, maple syrup, peanut butter, and cherries and mix completely. Let sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours but ideally, overnight.

  2. In the morning, give it a stir and add more milk, maple syrup, salt, and fresh cherries if desired. Right before serving, sprinkle with the cacao nibs and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

If fresh cherries are unavailable, use unthawed frozen cherries.

The overnight oats will be very thick in the morning. Add in extra milk until the oats reach a consistency you like.

Right before serving, add the cacao nibs for a nice crunchy element. You can also add more hemp or chia seeds, maple syrup, salt, or fresh cherries.
