Lifestyle expert Tommy DiDario calls this "the ultimate lazy recipe"—an easy, healthy, no-cook breakfast or snack. Simply toss the ingredients together in a jar, refrigerate overnight covered, then garnish with fresh fruit or whatever other topping you like. "It couldn't be easier," he says. "You have your meal in a jar. You wash it, you make it again, that's it!"
Pro Tip from Tommy: Rolled are great because they have a much softer texture than other types of oats and they soak beautifully.

In a small jar, stir together the almond milk, chia seeds, almond butter, maple syrup and pumpkin spice. Mix in the oats and stir again. All the oats should be covered by the almond milk so they can properly soak. If they are not, add a touch more almond milk. Cover with foil or a lid and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, the oats are ready! Just add toppings, such as sliced bananas or fresh berries, mix it up and enjoy! (In my experience, the oats are best eaten within 24 hours, but will last for about 2 days.)
