Over the summer I discovered overnight oats, and gave them a try and love them! I do like oatmeal but I don’t eat it that often because I don’t have extra time in the morning to make them.
These oats take maybe 10 minutes to make at night, and let me tell ya, it’s soooo much easier to grab these and eat them in the morning, they’re perfect if you’re in a rush in the mornings, and need a heartier and healthier breakfast rather than grabbing some pop tarts. Because of the sweetness in the milk and banana and honey, I don’t add any extra sugar which is a big plus for me. They’re so good, and it may sound weird but they taste like a doughnut, which is crazy, but I’ll accept it.
What you need:
1/3 to 1/2 a cup of oats
(You can use 1 minute oats, or old fashioned oats. Whatever you have on hand can work.)
1/2 a tbs of cinnamon
1/3 a cup of milk (I used vanilla almond milk for extra flavor)
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
A mason jar (or a container of some sort with a lid)
Start off by peeling the banana and breaking it up in the jar then mash the banana with a fork.
Then put the oats in the jar and add the vanilla and milk and cinnamon. And mix with the fork or put the lid on and shake the jar if you’re feeling ambitious.
Now put the oats in the fridge overnight or for 7-8 hours.
When you’re ready to eat the oats drizzle some honey on top for some extra sweetness, and flavor. Then enjoy!
