  • cups pitted cherries
  • tablespoons butter, melted
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk, or almond milk or cow’s milk!
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

to serve:

  • extra milk
  • unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • hemp seeds


  • Preheat the oven the 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the pitted cherries on the sheet and drizzle with the melted butter. Toss to coat. Sprinkle with the salt. Roast for 30 minutes, tossing once or twice in between, until the cherries are soft and juicy.
  • I like to mash a small section of the cherries – this makes it easier to swirl into the oats.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, milk, honey, hemp, chia, vanilla and almond extracts and the salt. Spoon a few cherries in the bottom of a glass or jar. Evenly divide the oat mixture between the jars. Use the remaining cherries to top the oats and swirl down into the mixture. Use up all the juice and syrup on the parchment too! Cover the oats and place them in the overnight – or for at least 8 hours.
  • When ready to eat, top with shredded coconut and hemp seeds or anything else you love.
