Blog Recipes Cherry Almond Overnight Proats

Cherry Almond Overnight Proats

Author: Dr. Tara Weir | August 3, 2018


The cherry and almond combo is always a winner in my books.  And here this dynamic duo finds perfect harmony in a make-ahead meal that is packed with all the goods — vitamins & minerals, antioxidants, fibre, healthy fats, and protein!

Honestly, there are few breakfasts as simple and satisfying as overnight protein oats (“proats”).  You simply mix the ingredients together in a matter of minutes the night before, and they soak while you sleep.  In the morning, they’re ready whenever you are!

These oats can be enjoyed cold or warm.  I like to serve them chilled but topped with warm cherry compote and almond butter.




  • 2/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 2 Tbsp Organika Health Enhanced Collagen (omit for vegan)
  • 2 Tbsp white chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp shelled hemp seeds (gluten-free if needed)
  • 2 tsp Organika Health Gelatinized Maca powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or nut-free milk
  • 3/4 cup canned organic full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp pure almond extract (optional)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries
  • optional toppings: warm cherry compote (just frozen cherries that have been heated up until slightly thick and syrupy), warm almond butter, and chopped raw almonds


  • Put all of the ingredients except toppings in a bowl or divide among single-serving mason jar(s) and stir well to combine.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight (or for a minimum of 6 hours).
  • In the morning, stir, add toppings and enjoy!

Cherry Almond Overnight Proats can be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
