BANANA OVERNIGHT OATMEAL
School is back in full swing and the craziness has begun.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day but sometimes between getting kids ready for school or daycare, feeding them and then attempting to shower, feeding ourselves a healthy breakfast can be a challenge.
Do I hear an amen? Well give this Banana Overnight Oatmeal a try. It doesn’t get much easier than mixing the ingredients in a bowl or mason jar, storing it in the refrigerator overnight and digging in when you wake up. When you make your breakfast overnight it makes the morning so much easier. A few other recipes I like to make is this Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding and this Overnight Banana Bread Oatmeal.
You can eat them cold or you can heat them up depending on your preference. It uses Silk Soymilk, oatmeal, a banana, a bit of honey and vanilla for a little sweetness and flavor. The nice thing with overnight oatmeal is it is customizable. I like to add all kinds of fresh fruit, maybe a dab of pumpkin, chia seeds (you might need a bit more liquid because they really soak up the liquid), or nuts.
This easy oatmeal uses Silk Soymilk which is a plant based protein to help you feel full, oatmeal to incorporate whole grains into your diet right from the moment you wake up and banana which is rich in potassium and high in fiber
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THESE OVERNIGHT OATS?
OATMEAL: Oats are a great way to start the day and will help keep you feeling full all day long. I used regular oats but you could try steel cut oats.
FRUIT: The banana adds a nice sweetness to this overnight oatmeal. You can also use other fruit like berries, apples, peaches or nectarines.
MILK OR MILK SUBSTITUTE: Feel free to use whatever milk or milk substitute you would like in these oats. They are necessary to soften the oatmeal overnight.
YOGURT: I used plain yogurt but you can also use Greek yogurt or a flavored yogurt, like vanilla.
FLAVORING AND NATURAL SWEETENER: For extra sweetness and flavor try adding vanilla, honey or maple syrup.
You can use any dairy or dairy alternative you like. You can also use whatever yogurt you like. Greek yogurt also works nicely and has great protein in it.
