a measuring cup with black chia seedsI love making these for busy mornings, they are perfect to grab and go! I layer them with fruits, nut butter (especially Roasted Cashew Butter🤤), extra shredded coconut, cinnamon, so good. I love eating this as pre-workout fuel, all the healthy carbs will give you so much energy. If you eat this after a workout or just want to bump up the protein, try adding a few TBSP of vanilla protein powder to your oats(add the protein powder right before serving, not the night before).

two jars of overnight oats with berries, bananas and shredded coconutsThis recipe will either make 2 large servings or 4 small servings. It keeps nicely in the fridge for up to 3 days! This is a recipe that you can really play around with until you find the perfect way you love your oats! I like mine on the thicker side but some people like them runnier, just adjust the almond milk amount. Some people like them sweeter, some people not so much. You can always add extra maple syrup or even honey. For me, 2 TBSP maple syrup is just right. I always try to use a ripe banana because that adds extra sweetness too. If you plan on adding vanilla protein powder, you might want to omit the maple syrup all together as the protein powder will sweeten it quite a bit. I have never tried using plant-based powder in this because I don’t really like the flavour… I use whey protein powder in this and I love it! But like I said, totally optional!

I prefer fat free plain Greek yogurt but you could use full fat, even vanilla flavoured would be yummy! We don’t drink a lot of dairy milk over here so I always use almond milk but you could totally swap that for dairy milk, soy milk, cashew milk, coconut milk would be really delicious too.

This recipe literally takes 5 minutes to prepare. Add the ripe banana to a large bowl, mash it up and add all the remaining ingredients. Pop a lid on it, let sit in the fridge overnight, and boom, overnight oats are done and ready for you to enjoy for breakfast! Top with alllll the toppings 🍓🍌🥝🥜🍯🍒🍑, or simply enjoy as is!!
