These Banana Bread Overnight Oats are quick and easy to make. They are a delicious breakfast when you are in a hurry and the kids will love them too!

The mornings can be so hectic here with everyone heading in different places. Breakfast is often a grab and go meal. However, during the winter months, it is nice to have something warm to eat in the morning. This is why these Banana Bread Overnight Oats are a big hit with the entire family. They are prepped the night before in less than 5 minutes. Then, they can be placed in the microwave for just 1 minute in the morning to warm them up. They are so convenient and can be eaten on the go! I just love the fresh banana in it and all the nutritional benefits in this simple breakfast.

Ingredients for overnight oats

Are the Overnight Oats Healthy?

Yes, this is a nutrient dense breakfast that will help power you through the day! The rolled oats are full of fiber and rich in antioxidants. Adding in the banana makes the breakfast rich in potassium and also gives  it a boost in vitamin C. I use almond milk to make it a vegan breakfast recipe. However, regular milk can be used. Also, I use monk fruit to sweeten it in this recipe. Monk fruit is a low carbohydrate natural sweetener that has gained popularity in recent years. If you do not have this on hand, a teaspoon of raw sugar or honey could be added to sweeten the oats.

Since I can't eat bananas because I have a food allergy, what other fruits do you recommend for overnight oats?

I know overnight oats is very popular in many health conscious circles so I can see the delight in them. I'm not a big one for it because I do love hot oats.
