Serving Size: 4 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Total Time: 2 hrs 5 mins

Ingredients for the Vanilla Chia Pudding:
  • 2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey, agave nectar or maple syrup
  • ½ cup chia seeds
Directions:
  1. To make the chia pudding: Mix the almond milk, vanilla extract and sweetener in a bowl. Add the chia seeds and stir to combine. Allow the seeds to set for 20 minutes, and then stir once more. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Ingredients for the Chocolate Coffee Overnight Oats:
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup brewed coffee
  • 1 Tbsp cacao magic, cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey, agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1 cup rolled oats
Directions:
  1. To make the overnight oats. Mix the almond milk, coffee, powder and sweetener in a bowl. Add the rolled oats and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours, or overnight.
Ingredients for the Jars:
  • coconut flakes
  • almonds, berries, bee pollen, cacao nibs or maple syrup
Directions:
  1. To make the jars (You could also do this in a bowl, of course!): Layer the chia pudding, coconut flakes and overnight oats. Sprinkle with desired toppings.
Notes: I like adding the coffee to my oats because I think it gives them a more robust flavor. It is also an extra pick-me-up, but including coffee is optional. If you want to keep things caffeine-free, replace the coffee with an additional ¼ cup of almond milk.
