Overnight Chia Oat Bowls

  • Yield: 1 1x



For the chia oat bowls:

  • 1/4c old-fashioned oats* (not quick-cooking)
  • 1 Tbsp chia seed*
  • 1/2c unsweetened almond milk (vanilla or original)
  • 12 tsp pure maple syrup or honey (optional)

Ideas for toppings:

  • Fresh berries–raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries
  • Fresh mango & kiwi
  • Coconut & mango
  • Dried cherries & almonds
  • Toasted coconut & almonds
  • A dollop of your favorite jam or fruit butter


  1. For each chia-oat bowl, stir together oats, chia seeds, almond milk, and syrup (or honey). Refrigerate 3-4 hours up to overnight to allow everything to reach a pudding-like consistency. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!


*Gluten and dairy free notes: be sure your oats are certified gluten free. We’ve been very happy with Bob’s Red Mill brand. Also, double-check that your chia seed is safe. Sometimes, it’s processed on shared equipment with gluten- or dairy-containing ingredients and may cause a reaction, depending on your sensitivity. We got ours at, but I’ve also seen it at Trader Joe’s for a great price.
