Ingredients

  • ½ mashed ripe banana
  • ½ cup rolled oats regular or gluten free
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • 2 T chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 1 T ground flax (optional)
  • 2 teaspoon 100% pure maple syrup

Instructions

  • Mash the banana in the bottom of a bowl or jar that can be sealed. Combine all other ingredients and stir well to combine.
  • Refrigerate overnight or at least about 4 hours. Serve hot or cold.
  • Garnish with some sliced banana or more nuts if desired.

Notes

  • Sweeten these banana bread overnight oats to your liking. The banana already adds a decent amount of sweet. I go back and forth on the maple--sometimes I just add a drizzle in the morning when serving.
  • I find that overnight oats with banana are best if eaten within 3 days. If you want to make these for the week, add the mashed banana in just before serving for any servings that won't be eaten until day 4 or 5.
  • You can easily make these banana overnight oats vegan by using a dairy free milk. For gluten free, make sure the oats are certified gluten free.
