I’m helping a friend with some weight loss goals right now. She never has time for breakfast and feels like it sets her up to fail each day in making poor food choices. {read my weight loss transformation here}

That’s when I recommended overnight oats!! Such a perfect breakfast for busy people!

Would it be too dramatic to say, I REALLY think this bowl of overnight oats tastes like banana bread? I TOTALLY DO!!

I have a post for high protein overnight oats that includes Greek yogurt. I love this idea, because it’s a nice balance of macronutrients.

However, with this recipe, I didn’t include the greek yogurt. Instead, I would eat this with a hard boiled egg if I need some protein with it, on the go.

Here’s the ingredients I used for this overnight oats (printable recipe below!)

  • almond milk unsweetened vanilla
  • vanilla extract
  • a banana
  • dry oatmeal
  • and walnuts

To make the liquid for the overnight oats, I simply blended the almond milk with the banana in a blender. Once the liquid was smooth, I added it to the oats with the vanilla extract to sit in the fridge overnight.

By morning, I had a delicious, filling and nutrient rich breakfast!
