Overnight Oats with Almond Butter and Fruit

Makes 1 cup. Prep time: 10 minutes active; 4 hours–overnight total.

1 tablespoon almond butter
3/4 cup almond milk, or other milk
1 tablespoon chia or flax seeds
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup dried fruit or 1/2 cup fresh or frozen fruit


In a pint jar or 1 1/2 –2 cup storage tub, combine the almond butter and almond milk and stir vigorously with a fork to mix well. Add the chia or flax seeds, oats, cinnamon and fruit. Stir.

Serving suggestion:
This is a great breakfast on the go — just make sure your container is leak-proof! If you crave a tad of extra sweetness, drizzle with a bit of honey.
