Have your cherry pie at breakfast, and feel good about it!

Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
Keyword cherry, rolled oats
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 minute
refrigerate 12 hours
Total Time 11 minutes
Servings 2 x 8 oz jars
Author Lauren Toyota


  • 1 C rolled oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 C Silk Almond Unsweetened
  • 1 C whole cherries, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1/3 C pecans, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp maple syrup + 2 tsp
  • 2 tbsp your favorite granola


  1. Combine rolled oats, cinnamon, sugar, and Silk in a bowl and set aside. While you prep the cherries and chop the pecans. Reserve about 1/4 cup chopped cherries and 1/4 cup chopped pecans for topping when serving.
  2. Place 1/4 cup of oatmeal in the bottom of each jar ensuring you also have enough liquid to fully coat the oats. They will absorb most of this liquid while setting overnight! Add a layer of pecans then drizzle 1 teaspoon of maple syrup on top. Add cherries and top with the rest of the oatmeal. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  3. In the morning top with reserved cherries, pecans and granola for an added crunch, drizzle with another 1 teaspoon each of maple syrup, if desired. You can eat it cold as the oats will be soft from soaking overnight or if you prefer, microwave the jar for 30 seconds to 1 minute before adding the additional toppings.

  1. Toss berries with lemon zest and maple syrup in a bowl. You can also do this the night before to get them extra juicy.

This is a quick and easy way to make what would otherwise be a complicated sweet breakfast idea!

Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
Keyword banana, breakfast, hazelnut, hazelnut milk
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 28 minutes
Servings 1 x 8 oz jar
Author Lauren Toyota


  • 1 ripe banana mashed
  • 1/4 C whole wheat flour
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 C whole hazelnuts
  • 1/4 C Silk Almond for Coffee Hazelnut + 1 tbsp
  • 1 tbsp Silk Cultured Coconut (optional)


  1. Roast hazelnuts in advance of wanting to make this breakfast. To roast hazelnuts, place the whole hazelnuts on a baking sheet. Place in a preheated oven at 425°F for about 10 minutes. Watch closely and toss once if needed until the skins are dark brown and have cracked. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and place the nuts in a clean tea towel. Fold the towel over top and rub the surface of the hazelnuts under the towel. This will remove the skins. Discard the skins and roughly chop the toasted nuts.

  2. Mash the banana in a jar. Then add flour, sea salt, cinnamon, baking powder, 2 tbsp chopped roasted hazelnuts, and 1/4 cup of Silk Almond for Coffee Hazelnut. Stir to combine well and ensure you don’t see any flour at the bottom.
  3. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Time may vary depending on your microwave model. 

  4. Right out of the microwave poke holes in the top of the bread pudding with a fork, then drizzle 1 tablespoon of Silk Almond for Coffee Hazelnut on top. It will soak into the bread pudding and sweeten it perfectly! 

  5. Top with a dollop of Silk Cultured Coconut, if desired, and more chopped hazelnuts.

Recipe Notes

To prep this the night before, combine everything in the jar as instructed except the baking powder, cover and refrigerate. In the morning stir in the baking powder well and then microwave as directed.

    Any suggestions for the cake if you live somewhere where they don’t have Silk and don’t have any kind of "for coffee" milks? Just use regular soy milk and some maple syrup maybe?
