Quick Banana Bread Overnight Oats

Print

My newest obsession:  banana bread OVERNIGHT OATS! I’m the type of person that makes something new, loves it, and then has it every day until I get completely sick of it. Trust me, I do this with just about every breakfast combination I come up with.  Not only are there an endless amount of variations, but is there really anything better than waking up and having breakfast just WAITING for you?!?! Mhm, didn’t think so. This is my basic overnight oat recipe that just happens to taste like the classic beloved banana bread. So, if you’re not already with instagram’s newest breakfast trend, I seriously suggest you hop on the overnight oat train!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

The overnight oats trend is a genius way to get in whole grains while running out the door. Rolled oats provide fiber along with lignans, a type of phytonutrient that is converted by the beneficial bacteria in our gut to provide protection against heart disease and certain cancers. The pecans in this recipe will keep you feeling full while helping stabilize blood sugar levels.
