  • 1 and 1/4 cup rolled oats - use gluten-free oats if allergic/intolerant to gluten.
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds the more chia, the thicker the oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon rose water  optional
  • 2 cups plant-based milk -   oat milk, almond milk, coconut milk

  2. In a separate bowl mix together all topping ingredients. Place about a tablespoon of this mixture in the bottom of  your jar, layer with the oat and chia mixture and repeat until you fill the jar.
  3. Leave to set in the fridge overnight. Sprinkle the chopped nuts and more fruit (if desired) on top before serving.
  4. Overnight oatmeal will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, though best enjoyed within the first 12-24 hours.
