Banana Split Overnight Oats

Banana splits never get old. 
Overnight oats never get old.
Why not marry the two and have an all-American dessert for breakfast?

IMG_5220These Banana Split Overnight Oats are quite the breakfast treat. They’re perfect to tuck into on a wintry and couch-ridded Saturday morning, while you’re encased in a blanket  cocoon with a tea nearby. That’s if you reside in Melbourne, of course. If you’re anywhere else in the world remotely sunny/not utterly miserable, you might even be able to enjoy your oats outside…

Banana Split Overnight Oats

Ingredients

Overnight Oats:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (organic if possible)
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/3- 1/2 cup milk of choice (I use coconut-rice milk), or a combination of water & milk
  • 1/4 cup natural full-fat yoghurt (five:am organics do the best organic yoghurts EVER!)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 heaped tsp shredded coconut
  • sweetener, to taste (stevia for sugar-free, or rice malt syrup/pure maple syrup)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2-3 heaped tbs raw cacao powder, or to taste
  • 1/2 banana, mashed

To serve:

Method

  1. Combine all ‘overnight oats’ ingredients except the mashed banana, cacao powder and sweetener. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. In the morning, combine the overnight oats with the mashed banana and cacao. Add desired sweetener to taste.
  3. In a tall glass, create layers by alternating with the oats, sliced banana, yoghurt and granola. Top with a drizzle of cacao-peanut butter and a sprinkle of crushed peanuts. Dig in!

Happy Nourishing!
