If using medjool dates, remove seeds first and toss in the blender/food processor. Once chopped up nice and small,add to the mix.
Add all ingredients to 1 large mason jar or 2 small ones. Cover with lid and shake. If you find that your overnight oats are usually dry, simply add extra non-dairy milk. You can add this in the morning time as well - no stress at all.
Place in the refrigerator overnight. Come morning, stir up and add the vegan chocolate chips on top. A drizzle of extra nut/seed butter is always nice too!
**Any nut/seed butter works in this recipe. Mix it up and have fun!**Yes, the oats cook in the refrigerator and are ready to eat come morning time. If you prefer warm oats, simply reheat before eating. **The medjool dates and/or maple syrup do make these oats quite high in sugar. I prefer the medjool dates for their amazing energy boost but if you are looking to stay low in sugar, I highly suggest using something like a monk fruit sweetener.
