They’re loaded with fiber from the oats, cherries, and the hidden veggie (if you know me, you’ve probably already guessed what it is). The Greek yogurt adds a protein boost, while the dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants while adding crunch and a touch of sweetness. One of these tasty jars will satisfy your sweet cravings while also keeping you full until lunch.

Makes 3 servings


150 g - Frozen Cauliflower Rice

420 g - Frozen, Dark Sweet Cherries - Divided

15 g - Cacao Powder

30 g - Maple Syrup - sub sweetener of choice

5 g - Espresso Powder - Optional*, but recommended

120 ml - Nut Milk

80 g - Rolled Oats - Use gluten free if needed

255 g - Greek Yogurt - Sub coconut yogurt for vegan

30 g - Dark Chocolate - Roughly chopped - Sub cacao nibs or chocolate chips

40 g - Cherry Jam - Optional

In a microwave safe bowl, add the cauliflower rice and 300 grams of cherries. Microwave for 2 minutes or until thawed.

Add cauliflower, cherries, cacao powder, maple syrup, espresso powder, nut milk, and salt to a blender. Blend on high until completely smooth.

In a large bowl, add oats. Pour blender mixture over the oats and stir until evenly incorporated. Cover and allow to thicken in the fridge for at least 2 hours to overnight.

To assemble, add a layer of oat mixture, followed by a layer of yogurt, jam, and cherries, another layer of oats, and then topped with yogurt, cherries, and chocolate.

Store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.


  • The espresso powder doesn’t make it taste like coffee. It helps to enhance the chocolate flavor.
