  • 3-4 Tbsps chia seeds (I use Navitas Organics)
  • 2 cups Almond milk  (I use Califia Farms; See Notes!)

  • 2-3 Tbsps Agave + more if needed! (I use Wholesome Sweets; See Notes!)
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt


  • vegan peanut butter, melted (I use Earth's Balance)

Tips | Notes:

STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!

NUT BUTTER: If preferred, you can always substitute peanut butter with Almond butter, SunButter (perfect for allergy-free needs!), Tahini (Sesame Seed Butter), Hazelnut Butter, etc.

SWEETENER: Instead of Agave, you can simply use pure maple syrup or add 1/2 cup mashed bananas to oats as a sweetener.

MILK: You can use your favorite plant-based milk, whether Soy, Oat, Coconut, etc.

HOMEMADE OAT MILK: If you prefer to make your own oat milk, you can see our easy Oat Milk Recipe.
