Chocolate-Cranberry Overnight Oats W/ Cashew Cream

posted by Melissa Huggins December 11, 2015 0 comments

Overnight oats are another breakfast favorite in our home. They’re so easy to make and so nutritious and satisfying. The ingredients are probably already in your pantry, too. You prepare them the night before, pop in the fridge, and they will be ready to enjoy in the morning. They takes about five minutes to make and that’s it! It’s creamy, sweet, hearty and down right delicious! They make a great on-the-go meal, too!

Also, overnight oats are very versatile, so you can keep everyone’s taste buds happy. You can add coconut flakes, cacao nibs, nut butter, dried or fresh fruit, jam, pudding, granola and more. Breakfast doesn’t have to be boring or flavorless. It’s a meal to enjoy and start you day off right! 

I topped these oats with my favorite cashew cream recipe. You can also prepare this the night before, and have it ready for the morning. I’m a little obsessed with these magical cashews, because they provide so much creamy texture without leaving an over powering flavor. They can be used in so many dishes from soups, desserts to cheesy sauces. Plus, a whole lot more. 

I made these overnight oats look a little festive for the holiday, but they can be enjoyed during anytime of the year. If you have any topping suggestions, I would love to hear them. I love being inspired! 

I’ll be back soon. xoxo

Chocolate-Cranberry Overnight Oats W/ Cashew Cream
Chocolate-Cranberry Overnight Oats
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 Tbsp of raw cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
Coconut Cashew Cream
  • 1 cup raw cashews , soaked in water for 4 hours
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tsp maple syrup or agave
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp coconut shreds
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp coconut oil (or coconut butter)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
Chocolate-Cranberry Overnight Oats
  1. Mash banana on the bottom of a mason jar or bowl. Add all ingredients, and mix really really well. Cover and let sit overnight.
Coconut Cashew Cream
  1. Blend all ingredients really well until smooth and creamy. If it's too thick, you can add a bit more milk. Add to the top of your oats and enjoy!
Recipe Notes
If you don't like cranberries, you can just omit them from the recipe. Also, when the fruit sits overnight in the oats, it get a little soft. If you don't like that kind of texture, just stir your fruit in the oats, in the morning. If you don't have time for the cashew cream, you can skip this step. Overnight oats are just as delicious, on their own.
