Overnight Oats with Banana and Peanut Butter

Another firm favourite – overnight oats 🙂 Haven’t tried it before? It is easy, convenient and delicious.

The basics are pretty straight-forward – raw oats with yogurt or milk, left overnight in the fridge – ready for breakfast!  No cooking required! 🙂

You can add fruit, nuts, berries, honey and spices as well – very versatile indeed!  🙂  I will post more ideas at a later stage!

I usually layer the ingredients in a container (looks lovely in glass bottles) – raw oats first, then milk/yogurt, then fruit/nuts, etc.

With this one I usually mix it all together, but must admit, it doesn’t look very appetizing!  So I tried it this way:

Serves 2

40g raw oats
350ml plain fat free yogurt
140g banana
10ml peanut butter (no sugar variety)
5g (1 tsp) cocoa powder
2 sachets artificial sweetener (if needed – the cocoa powder can be quite bitter).  You can use honey as well, if  you prefer a more natural sweetener.

Layer in 2 glass containers:

  • 20g raw oats in each container
  • Mash bananas and divide between the two containers
  • Whipped peanut butter, cocoa powder and sweetener together and layer on top

Leave in fridge overnight and have for breakfast the next morning!  Easy peasy 🙂
