Servings 1 servings


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed) or use 1/4 cup steel cut oats (the steel cut oats are chewier—I prefer them that way but some don’t like the chewy texture)
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds optional
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt for flavor and contrast to the sweet ingredients
  • 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa nibs (also called raw chocolate or cacao), (delicious if you can find them), or use finely chopped unsweetened chocolate (optional)
  • 1 banana 1/2 mashed into the jar and 1/2 thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened peanut butter or use almond butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, vanilla or regular flavor, or use dairy milk or plain yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened peanut butter powder (optional)


  • In a 16 oz. jar, combine the dry ingredients,and the mashed banana, then stir in the milk and banana slices. Put the lid on the jar, shake it, and refrigerate it for at least 8 hours and up to 12. In the morning, give it a shake or a stir and warm it, to taste.
