Banana Nut Overnight Oats

If you have never had overnight oats before, you are in for a real treat with this recipe. Imagine your favorite slice of banana bread, only in a jar of nutrient-dense deliciousness. You get a little crunch from the chopped almonds, which is necessary because the rest of this breakfast is creamy and soft. You see, the oats soak up all the liquid and flavors that you put in them. That’s why you get to set and forget, meaning you mix everything in the jar at night, set in the fridge, and grab it in the morning. Overnight oats make for the perfect grab and go breakfast!

Part of the attraction to overnight oats is the ability to customize your ingredients. You can essentially flavor them however you like, adding raisins, blueberries, walnuts, agave, peaches, or any other ingredients. This recipe is reminiscent of a banana nut muffin or banana bread, only this recipe contains almonds instead of walnuts. If you happen to have walnuts on hand, feel free to swap them for the almonds.

The general ratio for overnight oats is quite simple. You start with a 1:1 ratio of oats and liquid, and then you add the other ingredients. This recipe contains mashed banana, which helps achieve a creamier consistency. You can eat them straight out of the refrigerator (the preferred method), or you can heat the jar up in the microwave for about two minutes to enjoy hot. The choice is yours!
