PREP THE OATS: In a small bowl, mason jar, or Tupperware container, stir together the yogurt, milk, oats, coconut flakes, cocoa powder, salt, and maple syrup. If desired, add in the almond extract and coconut extract.
STIR: Stir until all ingredients are well incorporated. Taste the mixture and add any additional maple syrup if needed.
CHILL: Cover the container and place in the fridge overnight or until sufficiently cooled and thickened. (Sometimes I'll even make them in the morning, get ready, and then go eat them -- they are great even after just 30 minutes in the fridge)
OPTIONALLY TOP: Just before serving, top oats with some roasted almonds, coconut flakes, miniature chocolate chips, and/or a drizzle of almond butter.
OPTIONALLY TOASTING COCONUT: If desired, lightly toast coconut by placing it in a small skillet over medium heat. Stir constantly until lightly colored, golden brown, and fragrant.
