Creamy, gluten-free quick oats loaded with tangy cherries and crunchy walnuts. This yummy loaded oats recipe is one of my favorites!
What you"ll need:
1/3 cup rolled oats (gluten free, if needed)
2 tsp. chia seeds
1–2 tsp. pure maple syrup
1/2–3/4 cup nut milk (I use almond, cashew, oat, or coconut)
1–2 Tbsp. chopped walnuts
1/4 cup frozen dark cherries (or 3–4 Tbsp. fresh!)
1 TBSP Almond Butter - for drizzle
1 Scoop Collagen Peptides
What you'll do:
In a small bowl or jar (I find it’s easier to mix in a bowl), combine oats, chia seeds, salt, syrup, nut milk, and walnuts, frozen cherries and collagen peptides
Stir to combine - taste and add additional syrup, or milk as desired.
Transfer to a jar or container and cover.
Refrigerate at least 30-40 minutes, up to overnight.
To serve, add a little drizzle of milk or syrup, if needed, then top with remaining almonds and cherries, if desired.
Also - add a little bit of hot/boiling water if you want a creamy, warm version.
Add a few more walnuts and drizzle with your favorite nut butter of choice - I love Almond!
