Cherry Banana Overnight Oats

September 08, 2012

Is there a simpler breakfast than overnight oats? Hearty, inexpensive, and takes minutes to make, this is my go to breakfast during the work week.  Once you find a base you like, the toppings and add-ins are endless!!

Cherry Banana Overnight Oats

45 grams Old Fashioned Oats
2/3 cup - 1 full cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (depending on how thick you like)
1 packet Splenda (or any sweetener you like)
Half a medium banana, sliced into medium thick rounds
Handful of dark, plump cherries (about 7-10) halved and pitted

Mix the oats, milk, and sweetener in a bowl and let set in the refrigerator overnight. Add in your cherries and banana the next morning and enjoy. It is that simple!!!

You can adjust the sugar/ sweetener depending on how sweet you like your breakfast. I prefer mine with just a hint of sweet, but feel free to play around with this and see what you like best!

The great thing about overnight oats is the endless taste possibilities it offers. You can in peanut butter, cocoa, maple syrup, cinnamon, berries, etc for a new flavor combo every morning.

What are some of your favorite combos?
