Units Scale
  • 1 cup almond milk (or other plant milk or even just water)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (use certified gluten-free to make sure this recipe is 100% GF)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla powder (or extract)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup halved pitted sour cherries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional)
  • 1-2 tbsp raw cacao powder (add as much as you want basically)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • homemade chocolate sauce (recipe in the description of this video)


  1. Place the milk, oats, vanilla powder, and maple syrup into a pot, stir and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and cook for 5-7 minutes or until creamy. Add more milk or water if needed. I added about 1/4 cup water.
  2. Add the cherries and cook for 1-2 more minutes just to heat it back up if they were frozen.
  3. Stir in the cacao, and cinnamon, and serve. Top with your favorite berries, a mix of nuts and seeds of choice, nut butter, and/or the chocolate sauce I linked if desired. Enjoy!
