Cherry Chia Jam Overnight Oats

These vegan cherry chia jam overnight oats are home to two of my favorite things: creamy oats and summer's sweetest bounty (read: bing cherries)! Oats are whisked with almond milk, vanilla extract, chia seeds, cinnamon, maple syrup, and cocoa nibs. The oats chill and thicken overnight, making for a very hands-off recipe. In the morning, those creamy overnight oats are layered with a sweet cherry chia jam that's made with three simple ingredients: sweet cherries, pure maple syrup, and chia seeds.

This recipe makes 3 larger servings or 4 smaller servings. I like to make the oats and cherry chia jam on Sunday and then enjoy this dish for breakfast on over the next few days. You can easily cut this recipe in half if you want just enough to serve two.
