foodie wednesday: overnight oats (the encore)

yes, i have posted about overnight oats before, but they are so simple and delicious, they are definitely worthy of a second mention.  overnight oats are my go-to breakfast.  this awesome breakfast is hearty, healthy and will leave you feeling completely satisfied and ready to take on your day.  even better?  you whip up this simple recipe the night before, so when you're ready for breakfast the next morning, there is no wait!

1/3 to 1/2  of a (very) ripe banana
1/2 cup soy milk (you can also use regular milk or another nut milk)
1/2 cup oats (both quick oats and old-fashioned oats work great)
cinnamon & nutmeg
(1 tbsp peanut butter)

1. in a small bowl, sprinkle banana with a some cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg and mash with a fork until smooth

2. mix oats into banana and then add milk and stir

3. cover and place in fridge overnight - by morning you'll have thick, creamy oats

have oats?  will travel.  craig's are ready "to-go" and mine are all set for breakfast at home.
4. in the morning, uncover and heat in the microwave on 50% power for approx. 2 mins

5. add a dollop of peanut butter and sprinkle with a bit more cinnamon, if desired  (they are also great with a drizzle of honey, chopped nuts or raisins!)

finished oats with cinnamon & peanut butter
happy breakfasting : )


  1. i love overnight oats. great idea to add in some banana!!

  2. That looks amazing! Definitely trumps my breakfast of a cheese sandwich with tomatoes haha. I've never heard of Overnight Oats but I'll look out for them now :)

  3. Oooh, that looks super delicious. Can you believe that I've never had oats before (like this I mean). It's just not something we eat in country. But I love it, I bookmarked this page so I can try it sometime <3

  4. Perfect morning power breakfast!

  5. this looks delish!!! OHHHHHEMMMMGEE!!!


  6. Thanks for re-sharing this: I've heard about overnight oats and your post inspired me to finally try them. Chris and I both love them! much more satisfying than the instant oatmeal I usually have for breakfast.
