Grape Nuts Chocolate Coconut Overnight Old-Fashioned Oats

I modified my recipe for Overnight Old-Fashioned Oats  to come up with this recipe.

1/2 cup Quaker old fashioned oats
3/4 to 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (I use 1 cup)
1/2 banana, mashed
1 date, chopped
2 Tbsp Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
2 Tbsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup Grape Nuts cereal
1 tsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp Ground Flaxseed (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp maple syrup or date syrup

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 up to 5 nights and it was delicious the morning I ate it for breakfast.

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