Everything needs to be made the night before so the jam has time to cool, and the oats/milk/chia seeds can soak everything up. This will give you more time in the morning anyway to spend some time with your lover *winky winky.* See?! I’m only thinking of you guys. And me.
These Valentines Day Overnight Oats are:
- Naturally Sweetened
- Quick & Easy
The jam can be made with fresh or frozen raspberries, but I definitely recommend fresh raspberries for on top (if you have em, and they aren’t $6 a box). And you can use any sort of toppings you like, but I preferred cacao chips. They’re totally bitter and strange to eat on their own, but sprinkled on top of this breakfast they blend right in!
Valentines Day Overnight Oats with Raspberry Chia Jam
Recipe Type: Breakfast
Author: Beverley Cheng
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 8 hours
Total time: 8 hours 15 mins
- 1 cup frozen/fresh raspberries
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 1 cup oats
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp honey/other sweetener
For the jam, place your raspberries and coconut oil in a saucepan on medium heat. Stir until the berries have turned mushy and the juices are coming out, about 4-5 minutes. Add the honey/syrup and chia seeds. Keep stirring until it reaches your desired consistency (another 5-10 minutes) and then remove from heat. Allow to cool down and then scoop into a container/jar and place in fridge.
For the overnight oats, combine the oats, chia seeds, almond milk and sweetener in a bowl. Mix together until everything is interspersed (especially the chia seeds).
Place in fridge for 6-8 hours.
Before eating, scoop about 1/3 cup into a mason jar. Add a layer of raspberry jam and another layer oats. Add a final layer of jam and top with fresh raspberries, cacao nibs, and whatever toppings you desire.
