Overnight Old-Fashioned Oats (DF, GF)

I combined my recipe for overnight steel cut oats with Melissa's Almond Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats to come up with this recipe.

1/2 cup Quaker old fashioned oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins
2 Tbsp brown sugar or date syrup  (DF - use date syrup)
1 tsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp Ground Flaxseed (I use Bob's Red Mill)
2 tsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp peanut butter

Put all the ingredients into a jar with tight fitting lid and shake until well combined.   I use an "old" 16-oz glass peanut butter jar. Then refrigerate overnight or for a few nights.  I had mine sit in the fridge for 4 nights and it was delicious the morning I ate it for breakfast.

Warm up in the microwave for about 90 seconds or eat cold.
