Overnight oats are one of my absolute favorite breakfasts! It only takes about 5 minutes to throw together at night and then you have a delicious and healthy breakfast with no work in the morning. It’s a perfect grab and go option for those busy mornings when you don’t have time to think about breakfast.
I think what really makes this recipe is the mashed banana. It sounds a little weird, but it adds a really great sweetness to the whole thing without any added sweeteners. The recipe calls for 1 banana, but depending on how you like it, you can just use half of a banana and still get the desired effect. Overnight oats are very versatile, so you can modify the recipe to whatever you like! Almost any topping works on this, so feel free to switch out the berries for another fruit or something. If you really want to get crazy, nix the cinnamon and throw in about ½ -1 tbsp of cacao for chocolatey overnight oats!
⅓ cup rolled oats (GF if necessary)
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 banana, mashed
⅔ cup unsweetened almond milk
Dash of cinnamon
2-3 strawberries, sliced
Handful of blueberries
1 tbsp almond butter
- In a jar or bowl, mix together the mashed banana, oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and almond milk. Refrigerate overnight.
- In the morning, top with sliced strawberries, blueberries, and almond butter. Enjoy!
