Overnight Oatmeal

  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 2 cups water

Sautéed or Roasted Pears

  • 2 pears
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 dash vanilla extract optional
  • 1 dash maple sugar optional

Vanilla Chia Hemp Seed Pudding

  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp hemp seeds
  • ¾ cup canned coconut milk
  • ¾ cup unsweetened macadamia milk or nut milk of choice, I use Milkadamia
  • 30.8 grams Primal Kitchen Vanilla Collagen Fuel (2 scoops) or protein powder of choice

Toppings (optional, for added crunch)

  • walnut pieces optional
  • coconut flakes optional


Overnight Oatmeal (prep 1 night in advance)

  • In a container, add 1 cup of steel cut oats and cover with 2 cups water. Cover and leave at room temperature overnight, at least 7 hrs or up to 24 hours. Store in the fridge after 24 hours.

Vanilla Chia Hemp Seed Pudding (prep 1 night in advance)

  • Either in a blender or another container, add ¼ cup chia seeds, 3 tbsp hemp seeds, ¾ cup canned coconut milk, and ¾ cup unsweetened macadamia milk.
  • Stir to combine. Using a blender will help prevent clumps. If stirring by hand, slowly add vanilla protein powder to the pudding mixture, bit by bit to avoid clumps. Store in the fridge overnight for at least 7 hrs. NOTE: The texture will be quite solid out of the fridge due to the coconut milk being refrigerated, but will liquify when mixed with the warmed oats later. Add liquid to your desired consistency.

For Sautéed Pears

  • Chop the pears and sauté in 2 tbsp coconut oil for 5 minutes or until desired softness. Add a dash of salt and cinnamon. Optional: add a dash of maple sugar and vanilla extract.

For Roasted Pears

  • Chop the pears. Coat the bottom of a pan or cast iron skillet with 2 tbsp coconut oil. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Optional: add a dash of maple sugar and vanilla extract.

Compiling, Day of

  • Heat the oats. In a small pot on medium, heat ¼ of the Overnight Oatmeal mixture (both oats and some liquid) on the stove and bring to a light boil. Liquid from the oats are fine here, more may be needed for desired consistency.
  • Layer the bottom of your serving container with your now warmed Overnight Oatmeal, followed by a ¼ of the Vanilla Chia Hemp Seed Pudding mixture. If necessary, add a few splashes of nut milk to desired consistency. Top with ¼ of Sautéed or Roasted Pears.
  • For a crunchy texture, follow with walnut pieces, hemp seeds, or coconut flakes.


I use Milkadamia's Macadamia Milk Unsweetened and Primal Kitchen's Vanilla Collagen Fuel when calculating the nutrition facts for this recipe.
If you're in a rush, 2 hours can work too, but you won’t receive as much benefit from soaking for a longer period.
