With summer fast approaching, we’ll be spending less time baking and cooking in the kitchen! Many of us oatmeal lovers will be transitioning from hot stovetop oats to overnight refrigerated oats! They’re more refreshing on a hot summer morning!
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.
Once I took them out of the fridge in the morning, I would add my favorite toppings. My favorite ones for this recipe include– pecans or granola, for a little crunch, warm melted peanut butter, 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 makes this recipe SO creamy. It’s 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 from work too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Be sure to tag @becksliveshealthy on Instagram if you give my recipe a try. Enjoy!
