Basic Chocolate Overnight Oats (GF)

This has become my basic standard overnight oats recipe.  I make this on a regular basis.  I often vary it by adding 2 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut or raisins or instant coffee granules or ground nuts.

1/2 cup Quaker old fashioned oats
1 tsp caramel extract (I use OliveNation)
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Flaxseed (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 to 3 Tbsp peanut butter (no sugar)
1/2 tsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)
3/4 to 1 cup water or unsweetened almond milk
1/2 banana, sliced
1/8 tsp garam masala or cardamom (optional)
1 Tbsp maple syrup or brown sugar or molasses or date syrup  (Use Date Syrup for Daniel Fast)

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.
