Banana bread overnight oats are the perfect breakfast to make ahead for busy mornings on the go! They take less than 5 minutes to make and they’re packed with fiber, protein, healthy fats to keep you full all morning long!
When I first started eating healthier, I ditched the Special K bars for overnight oats. I was working long hours at the hospital and working out early prior to my shifts, so I needed something to fill me up in the mornings. I never knew if and when I would get my morning snack break at work, so I needed a breakfast that would power me through the busy morning. If I was working 3 long shifts in a row, I would prep 3 batches of this recipe and keep them in the fridge until the morning of work. Toppings would be added in the morning. My favorite ones include– pecans (for a little crunch), warm melted peanut butter (the warm PB tastes soooo good with the cold oats), and a few more banana slices!
My banana bread overnight oats make you feel like you’re having dessert for breakfast! The banana and yogurt make them SO creamy. They’re packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats to keep you full all morning long. I love this recipe so much that I often prep it for my days off too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
