Easily made vegan, these oats start with cacao cherry blended base, with sweet cherries, tangy Greek yogurt, and intense dark chocolate chips layered on top. With every bite tasting like dessert, you’d never guess that these tantalizing jars are actually good for you.

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.

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