Here is another overnight oats recipe. I honestly find that there are almost an infinite number of ideas when it comes to overnight oats and I am just barely scratching the surface. Who wants more overnight oats recipes? Just let me know, ya know where to find me.
Anyway, this idea came to me when I had an epic kitchen fail with a dark chocolate cherry cheese toast idea. Sounds intriguing but the taste and look are pretty bad. I still have some leftover frozen cherries, I figured why not make some overnight oats outta them since I'm a roll here.
You can totally make this vegan by using vegan-friendly yogurt. You can also skip the whole flambé thingy as that was just a chefy touch. Or not. Again, this tastes just like ice cream, a healthier version of ice cream indeed.
