Ingredients:
1/3 cup plain/regular rolled oats
3/4 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons chia seeds
½ of a ripe banana, peeled and mashed
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract



Directions: Mix together the above ingredients in a bowl and place in fridge overnight.



I made this last night and it was sooo delicious this morning! It only took 2 mins to throw together and put in fridge, (much better than boiling them on the stove!) and it was great! I also added about a tsp of cocoa powder this morning because I love chocolate-banana flavor, but you could do other mix-in ideas like almond butter & pure maple syrup etc. Also you could leave out the banana and/or chia seeds if you’d like or if you don’t have them on hand and just use the almond milk. This recipe is very versatile!!

Thank you soooo much for this recipe! I made it last night and just had it a little bit ago. It is really yummy! I didn't have chia seeds and I also only had vanilla soy milk so I used that. I added a little bit of peanut butter because I love it with banana. But next time I'm going to use your chocolate idea. I need to get some chia seeds now. I hear they are very good for you.

I like steel cut oats made with water too, or a splash of juice.

I always use that coconut yogurt for my overnight oats
I’ve recently developed an addiction to soy yogurt as well – are you not a fan of soy?
Also, how was the muesli/ how did the texture differ from regular oats? I’ve been dying to try Udi’s but I have way too many oats that I need to eat my way through first.

Honestly I don't think they have a taste. They do add texture (somewhat like poppy seeds but with a thin gel-like coating around each one) but really, they are not very noticeable in a recipe. I just use them for their nutritional benefits.

My new years resolution was to eat more breakfast this year. I think having something like this in the fridge ready for breakfast will help. Thanks

Also, do you think I can make enough for a couple of days and just keep it in the fridge?

Yep, I have done this before. Just be careful though because it's tempting to eat the whole batch/bowl

Just put two servings in the fridge for tomorrow. Very excited! I didn't have a banana (all the ones at the store were green as could be) so I just used my almond milk. I also added ground cinnamon and a cinnamon stick that i broke up and put in the mix. It smells pretty cinnamony!

Delicious! We've been having oats a lot lately (cold mornings here at the moment!) and I have recently rediscovered my love of chia seeds so have been adding them too. The other day I made a chia blueberry pudding with some dates, macadamia nuts, agave, and cinnamon and added that to the oats. Big success! I must say that I love the peanut butter idea too, might give it a go sometime...

So glad I found this, I plan on trying tonight/tomorrow morning. I definitely need some good breakfast ideas that aren't: take protein bar and eat it when I get to work.

Not sure if this is the latest thread, but I'm hoping others will chime in with more ideas as I'm on an overnight oats revival kick at the moment.

This morning I had overnight oats made from rolled oats, dried sour cherries, almonds, flax seeds, rice and coconut milk, cherry syrup and cocoa powder. I usually do some variation on dried fruit (sultanas, apricots or cherries), nuts (usually almonds, sometimes walnuts, occasionally hazel) and sometimes add-ins like a sprinkling of coconut flakes or a spoonful of jam, peanut butter, chocolate chips or cocoa powder. Is there anything awesome I'm missing?
