  • 4 cups of rolled oats
  • ½ cup of seeds such as sunflower or pumpkin
  • ½ cup of raisins or dried cranberries
  • ¼ - ½ cup or other dried fruit such as goji berries, dates, chopped apricots - anything you like!
  • 1 cup nuts, like almonds, walnuts, pecans. Again, your choice!
  • Mix everything in a gallon-size zip top bag and shake to combine.


  • 1.5 cups muesli homemade or store bought
  • 2 T of chia seeds
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • 1 T maple syrup
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Almond milk or other plant based milk


  1. Add the muesli, chia seeds, cinnamon, maple syrup, and salt to your pot or other covered bowl.

  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Add enough almond milk to cover the muesli by about an inch. Stir to combine.

  4. If the milk is absorbed by the oats and you can see the muesli mix, add enough milk to cover the mix until only a few pieces of fruit or nuts and seeds are visible (see the last photo as a reference).

  5. Cover and let sit overnight.
  6. In the morning, the oats will have absorbed the milk and your overnight oats will be ready to eat! Adjust sweeteners or salt, top with seasonal fresh fruit, and enjoy!
