If you missed last week, Megan Roosevelt with HealthyGroceryGirl.com and I shared our Healthy Habits calendar for March to jump start better choices for a more balanced life.

To get started on Healthy Habits this month Megan has put together a delicious and easy recipe that you’ll want every morning. These Cherry Chia Overnight Oats are a healthy choice for a snack or breakfast to start your day.



1/2 cup of rolled oats

1 cup of non-dairy milk beverage (I used unsweetened Hemp milk)

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

1/4 cup of pitted cherries (I used frozen cherries)

1 teaspoon of 100 percent pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon of chopped walnuts halves


  • Add oats, non-dairy milk and chia seeds into a small bowl and mix together. Pour batter into a mason jar or container. You can also use the same container to mix the overnight batter to store it
  • Top with cherries, maple syrup and walnuts and then secure with a lid
  • Store in the refrigerator overnight
  • Enjoy in the morning, no cooking required!


  • Choose Organic ingredients when possible
  • I like wide-mouth 16-ounce Mason Jars for this recipe
