Gluten-Free Recipe: Chocolate Banana Almond Vegan Overnight Oats

Since first making them last week, I've had a variation vegan overnight oats for breakfast every day. I love preparing them the night before, experimenting with new ingredients and ratios, and how filling they are. My recipes prepare enough for a hearty breakfast with enough leftover small snack later in the day, which I really like. The oats I made last night were so wonderful I wanted to share them. Enjoy!

Chocolate Banana Almond Vegan Overnight Oats
1/3 cup Bob's Red Mill Certified Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
1/2 cup chocolate almond milk (I used Almond Breeze Unsweetened Chocolate)
1 packet Amazing Grass Green SuperFood Drink Powder (Cacao Infusion flavor would also work well)
1/2 medium ripe banana, mashed
1 heaping tablespoon chia seeds (I buy Navitas brand)
1 heaping tablespoon flaxseed meal (I buy Bob's Red Mill brand)
1 tablespoon natural almond butter or other nut butter (right now I'm using Blue Diamond Homestyle Creamy Almond Butter)
3 medium strawberries, sliced (or other fresh berries)

Combine oats, almond milk, banana, Amazing Grass powder, chia seed and flaxseed in small bowl and mix well (I used a whisk). Cover and refrigerate overnight. Mix in nut butter and berries. Add extra almond milk to thin if desired. Heat in microwave 45-60 seconds (oats will be room temperature) and enjoy!
