750. Banana-Peanut Overnight Oats

Third in the series of five comes the classic combination of banana-peanut overnight oats. The raspberry-chocolate was decadent, blueberry-lemon refreshing, this one is rich and nostalgic, tropical ananas-coconut, and the colorful carrot-walnut.
Of course, substitutions are easy. Just like the milk where you can use any kind you like (dairy/soy/nut), you can also use any nut butter you like (most common are peanut/almond/cashew). The topping of chopped walnuts lends a nice crunch and textural change to the dish.


1/3 cup oats
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/2 banana, sliced
2 Tbsp walnuts, chopped


In a jar, put the oats then the chia seeds.
Pour over the milk (could be dairy or soy or nut milk of choice), and spoon over the plain yogurt.
Add the honey and peanut butter.
Add the sliced banana and finish off with the chopped walnut.
Refrigerate overnight and consume next morning.
This could be heated in the microwave if desired, but make sure your jar is microwave safe.

صحة و عافية

Thank you so much Maryam you have no idea how much i like this breakfast because it is so convenient since you can just grab the bowl in the morning and just eat it and plus it is so delicious and not to mention that all the ingredients are on the super food list. I substituted the milk with water since I'm lactose intolerant. If you are lactose intolerant don't be discouraged try it and I know you will like it. Sarah.

I'm so glad you liked it Sarah, saha wa aafia in sha Allah. I loved this breakfast too and it's so filling! Recently I've taken to making my own almond milk and I prefer it to regular cow's milk with my coffee now. Homemade almond milk needs only almonds and water and is lactose free.
