Hi friends!

Let’s try this again…I had this post ready to go and hit post and it disappeared into cyber space. So frustrating after putting a few hours into all the details. Anyways here we go again. 

About the Raw Oatmeal…

When I decided to start sharing recipes on the blog, this raw oatmeal one was on the top of my list. It is my FAVORITE “overnight oatmeal” and I am excited to share it with you. If you follow me on snapchat, you have definitely seen how often I make this recipe. My hubs even likes it too! Last summer, we were in Southampton for a quick weekend and stopped by Juice Press for a green juice. They had samples of their raw oatmeal and we grabbed one on our way out. We couldn’t believe how tasty it was. Cachi (my husband) and I kept trying to get back to Juice Press that weekend to get a full size order but unfortunately ran out of time. So of course I turned to my trusty Pinterest for a copycat recipe & I came across this one.

Adapting the recipe…

At first, I thought this recipe looked a bit intense. However, after my first attempt, I realized it just needs some prep since you have to soak the oats & cashews ahead of time. Besides that it is pretty easy! I have made it so many times that I kind of wing it and try something new each time. For example, I use regular almond milk or coconut milk instead of canned coconut milk. I also discovered, I like to use coconut manna instead of coconut oil. Coconut manna is pure, pureed coconut meat instead of just the extracted oil. I find it gives the oatmeal a creamier taste. The original recipe also calls for vanilla paste (which you have to scrap out a vanilla bean to get the paste), but I find it easier and just as tasty to use vanilla extract. 

About the chia jam…

Raw oatmeal not your thing? I recommend still giving the Raspberry Chia Jam a try. It is a healthier version of your everyday jam and is so delicious. I love it on my avocado toast! It would also be delicious served with goat cheese or baked brie and crackers for a crowd-pleasing appetizer.

  5. 2 cups water
  6. 4-5 pitted medjool dates
  7. 1/2-3/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond or coconut milk
  8. 2 tbsp melted coconut manna (or coconut oil)
  9. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  10. dash of ground cinnamon
  11. 1/4 tsp pink himalayan salt

For the Raw Oatmeal
  1. Soak the oats overnight (or at least 8 hours)
  2. Soak cashews overnight but no more than 8 hours (they will start to taste weird)
  3. In the morning (or after soaking), put soaked oats in a nut milk bag or sieve & drain over bowl for at least 5 minutes.
  4. Drain the cashews and place in high-speed blender (I use a Vitamix) along with the dates, milk, coconut manna (or coconut oil), vanilla, cinnamon, & salt.
  5. Blend for about a minute, until completely smooth. Add a little more milk if not blending
  6. Taste - add more dates if you want it a little sweeter & more milk if you like a more fluid consistency.
  7. Combine the blended cashew mixture with drained oats in a large bowl and mix.
  8. Serve with Raspberry Chia Jam.
For the Raspberry Chia Jam
  1. Combine raspberries, honey (or maple syrup), & vanilla extract in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Bring to a boil, lower heat & simmer for 1 minute.
  3. Remove from heat & add lemon juice.
  4. Allow to cool completely & then mix in chia seeds.
  5. Transfer to a glass jar & place in fridge for at least 2 hours so the chia seeds sprout.
