This morning I had Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats for breakfast and it hit me: How did I not share an overnight oats recipe until now, because it’s the easiest breakfast ever?!? No idea. What makes ’em the easiest/ quickest breakfast, you might wonder? They require zero effort, and by that I mean you literally throw the ingredients in a bowl, mix and leave them in the fridge overnight to soak. Yes, that’s it. No cooking, no mess, no fuss.
If you never tried overnight oats until now, I’ll fill you in on what you’re missing out: They’re incredibly nutritious. They are super versatile – you can top them with anything you have in mind. And also, they’re freakin’ delicious.
Tips and tricks for this recipe:
-Depending on how you like your oats, chose between rolled and steel-cut. Rolled oats will give you a smoother, silkier result, while steel-cut will make a chewy, hearty texture.
-Add some chia seeds to your mix. A tablespoon of seeds will give your oats an even more nutritious value and a nicer texture.
-Before serving the Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats, add a few roughly chopped nuts on top. Don’t do it the night before because you’ll end up with soggy nuts instead of crunchy!
-The secret to a creamier mix lies in the Greek yogurt. A third of a cup is enough for two portions.
