Black forest gateau oat parfait

overnight oats

 

Another super simple breakfast idea! A black forest gateau oat parfait from Naturally Meghan. With overnight oats and chia seeds.

Ingredients

For the chocolate overnight oats:
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup milk of choice
1/2 a banana, mashed
2 tsp cacao (or cocoa) powder
For the vanilla overnight oats:
1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup milk of choice
1/2 a banana, mashed
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
For the chocolate chia pudding:
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/3 cup milk of choice
1 tsp cacao (or cocoa) powder
For the cherry compote:
1 cup fresh/frozen cherries (defrosted if frozen)

 

How to make:

In a small bowl mix together the ingredients for the chocolate overnight oats then do the same with the vanilla overnight oats in a separate bowl. In another small bowl or jar mix together the ingredients for the chia pudding, then cover all the containers and place them in the fridge overnight (give the chia pudding a quick stir after about half an hour).

In the morning mash the cherries into a pulp to make the compote, then remove the other components from the fridge and start assembling your parfait; begin with the chocolate oats as the bottom layer then spread half the cherry compote over the top of them. Next, add the vanilla oats, then the rest of the compote and, finally, the chocolate chia pudding as the topping. Sprinkle any extra toppings over the parfait (such as cacao nibs, dessicated coconut or seeds) and dig in!
