  • 1/2 cup cubed dried papaya
  • 2 Tbsp Hemp Seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Cacao Nibs

Apple & Peanut Butter

  • 1 large apple, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder

Maple Bacon

  • 2 Tbsp Walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1/8 tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 2 slices Bacon (one in mix, one for topping)

Coconut Matcha

  • 2 Ripe Bananas, mashed
  • 2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 2 tsp Matcha Powder
  • 1/4 Dried Coconut
  • Pinch of Salt



Combine all ingredients, including milk and oats, in a jar or container and stir to combine. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours. Add more milk when serving for a softer/smoother texture. For more variety try changing the milk or fruit in each recipe, or topping oatmeal with fresh fruit or cocoa powder. Oatmeal can be served hot or cold.

*If you use instant oats, the resulting oatmeal will be much thinner. This works well if you want to blend the mixture into a smoothie, but can be less filling.

**You can use regular dairy milk or unsweetened non-dairy milks as well. In both cases you can add a half teaspoon of vanilla extract or extra sweetener to the recipe if desired.
