Banana Overnight Oats is a healthy breakfast that you can make ahead of time for busy mornings. It is a flexible recipe that can easily be customised to suit dietary and flavour preferences. The chia seeds optional but provide extra nutrition (they are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fibre, iron, and calcium), they also make the overnight super creamy and pudding-like.
Ingredients: Serves 1
- 40g Rolled Oats
- 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
- 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/2 Banana, mashed
- 1 TablespoonPeanut Butter
- 120ml Almond Milk (or milk of choice)
Add oats, chia seeds, cinnamon to a glass jar and stir to combine.
Add the mashed banana, peanut butter and a splash of the milk. Stir to fully combine. Add some slices of banana to half way down the jar to look good and add texture.
Add the remaining milk, stir, cover and refrigerate overnight (or for a minimum of 4 hours)
Uncover and enjoy from the container/bowl the next day. Thin with a little more milk if desired and add toppings of choice e.g sliced banana.
