Breakfast on the Go! Overnight Oats

I know I’ve mentioned in previous posts that the trick to getting me to eat breakfast during the week is convenience- so when I discovered overnight oats I was thrilled at the possibilities.  This was a breakfast option that I could grab quickly on my way out of the house in the morning, and that I could make in the evening to last me a few days. I was excited but a bit skeptical at first because a big thing for me with food is texture, and overnight oats tend to be fairly mushy. I found that by adding different toppings, the texture didn’t end up bothering me, and I had found another very customizable meal, which I love!

Ingredients (2 servings)

  • 1 medium to large ripe banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (I use Vanilla)
  • 1 cup rolled oats (don’t use quick oats)
  • 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of honey or agave

Toppings

Anything you like! In the picture above I used banana and strawberry but I’ve also just added peanut butter when I don’t have extra fruit on hand

Recipe

Mash the large banana in a bowl

Add all other ingredients, combine well

Split into two airtight containers (I use mason jars), close tightly and put in the fridge overnight

Yes, it’s that easy

**Stir well before eating!

Add your toppings and enjoy!
