Cinnamon Overnight Oats with a Chocolate Cashew Cream Topping

This is a really decadent overnight oat recipe full of 17 g of protein, 11 g of fibre and all natural sugar. 

 

Yields 2 Servings

Ingredients:

Overnight Oats

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup milk or plant milk (I suggest using the unsweetened version of plant milks)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts (or chia seeds, or freshly ground flaxseed)

Topping:

  • 1/4 cup cashews (soaked in water for 2 hours and then drained)
  • 2 dates
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 - 1/8 cup milk or plant milk or more depending on the consistency you would like to achieve.  
  • Fresh fruit and dark chocolate chunks to garnish

Instructions:

Overnight Oats:

  1. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir until combined.  
  2. Pour the mixture into two separate jars or mugs. 

Topping:

  1. Soak the cashews in water for 2 hours. 
  2. Drain the cashews and add them and the rest of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  If you would like it to be more of a pudding like consistency, you may want to add a bit more plant milk until it's the consistency you prefer.  
  3. Pour half of the topping onto each portion of the oats mixture and set aside in the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours, or overnight. 
  4. Enjoy!
