Mixing the rolled oats with the chia seeds and the milk.
Stir well. Set aside to soak for at least 1 hour or, for best results, keep in the fridge overnight.*
Prepare the vegan salted caramel layer
Mash or blend the dates together with the peanut butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
If the consistency of the mix is too thick, you can add 1-2 tablespoon water.
To make the breakfast jars a bit pretty, you can slice a couple of very thin slices of banana and stick them to the side of the jar.
Layer the overnight oats with the caramel over them and then top with yogurt. Sprinkle puffed quinoa**, sit back and enjoy this delicious breakfast.
* Quick soaked oats will remain chewy and have a bit of 'bite' to them. Whereas overnight oats will be softer and more of a combined mixture - as the milk becomes thicker and the oats become softer. ** If you're making them the night before, then omit adding the 'soft' toppings until right before serving. Puffed quinoa will go a bit 'soggy' if left on this dish for too long.
