Banana Nut Bread Overnight Oats

Banana Nut Bread Overnight Oats

GUYS! It's so hard for me to get in a healthy breakfast in the morning, but I love this easy banana nut bread overnight oats recipe! It is SO good! |

I’ve been on this kick to eat healthier. It’s hard!!( So many donuts, so much bacon…) But I’ve been gradually changing the way I eat one meal at a time. I don’t always make healthy choices, but I’m getting better.  I’ve always been a breakfast eater, but not a HEALTHY breakfast eater. But it’s hard to cook up a healthy breakfast every morning in between getting Pookah to school and getting ready for work.  I needed something quick, healthy, and good. I heard about overnight oats and I was intrigued. I did my research ( Pinterest of course) and discovered a lot of recipes but none that made me want to try. But what I did see were a lot of varieties of what has become my recipe for Banana Nut Bread Overnight Oats.Of course, my Banana Nut Bread Overnight Oats recipe is not only gluten free, but if you want to get technical, it’s vegan too!

Side note: I’m not Vegan, I’m just a weekday vegetarian.

Luckily, all of my ingredients were things that I already had in my pantry, which, let’s face it, is the hallmark of a good easy recipe.

    This looks incredibly yummy! I am like you, I love to have breakfast in the morning but often times don’t have enough time! I would try this, but substitute the banana for something else 😛

    Mmm, this looks delicious! I love that it’s ready in the morning with very little prep. Just add some banana slices and nuts and you’re good to go. It would be great for an on-the-go commuter breakfast too!

    I love making overnight oats. Even my kids love them for breakfast. I haven’t tried using almond milk though. I am not a fan of this milk, but with overnight oats, I think I can take it. I will try using it next time.

    That looks so good – I am a pecan lover! I understand what you mean about trying to make healthier choices. It is a tough process, but very rewarding if you make gradual steps. Can’t wait to try it out!

    I love to make overnight oats. They make the mornings a bit easier knowing that breakfast is already done and ready to go. I have not tried to make banana bread ones before, they sound delicious.

    I need to try a healthier breakfast. I eat a muffin and a cup of hot tea. If I could at least add in a healthy side I would be good. I’m not a banana type though.

    Hey LaShawn, I keep seeing overnight oatmeal about pinterest as well. I was skeptical about them because I’m not sure I want cold oatmeal however, I am a lover of banana bread. Decisions, decisions!

    I’ve only tried overnight oats once and it was TERRIBLE! This recipe sounds really delicious though so I’m going to try it again! I love the addition of the banana to the mix then night before 🙂

    I am not a fan of banana unless it’s Now and Later but I think I need to step out of my comfort zone and try new things to get off this weight. I have never tried silk milk so I may give it a chance. I know reg milk and I don’t mix well these days so I have been doing lactaid milk

    I have not yet tried overnight oats. Something about eating it cold turns me off. I like warm oatmeal. I’ll eventually try it.

    This looks so yum. I have been hesitant to try overnight oats because I actually enjoy the process of making oatmeal but some mornings I am just to tired to get it together and next thing you know it’s afternoon and I am binge eating something unhealthy not to mention oatmeal is a staple for this breastfeeding mama. I love banana bread too so I am going to try this.
