I do intermittent fasting and usually do not eat breakfast, but I will occasionally indulge in this easy-to-make oatmeal.

This contains a decent amount of fiber, which is necessary for maintaining healthy gut flora and regular bowel movements. This is a great way to get fiber into your kids and a dish they will actually enjoy eating.


  • 1/2 cup gluten free, organic rolled oats (steel cut)
  • 1 tablespoon organic chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut-almond blend, milk
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon raw, organic cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract or 1 teaspoon alcohol free, vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon organic, raw honey or maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons organic chia seeds (for garnish topping)
  • 2 teaspoons organic shredded coconut, unsweetened (for garnish topping)
  • Optional – 2 teaspoons Enjoy Life brand, chocolate chips (for garnish topping)


In a 16-ounce mason jar, place oats, sweetener of choice, chia, cacao, vanilla, coconut or almond milk, and water. Mix well.

Place lid on and seal, leaving in refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, stir to break up any clumps and add garnish toppings. Feel free to use fresh fruit, if you prefer.

Serve and enjoy!
