Overnight Oatmeal with Bananas, Yogurt, Oats and Peanut Butter

I read this recipe recently and thought to myself “another way to use Chia seeds”.  This is quite a combination and has so many good things for you, unless you add the crumbled bacon on top.  I have tweaked this recipe from the Food Network Magazine and so can you.  Some time ago a fellow blogger posted a recipe using chocolate which sounded good too!

Overnight Oatmeal with Bananas, Yogurt, Oats and Peanut Butter

  • 1 (6 oz.) carton plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup milk – I used vanilla almond milk, but you could also use chocolate or regular milk
  • 1/2 cup sliced banana, I then cut each slice into fourths
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 to 1 tbsp. chia seeds or flaxseed meal, optional – I used  1 tbsp. chia seed and it was too much so I will cut back to 1/2 tbsp.
  • 1 tbsp. peanut butter – I used almond peanut butter and mixed it with the honey and a little milk from above to distribute the peanut butter
  • banana slices, cut into fourths for garnish and some crumbled up crispy bacon

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl except for the garnishes.   Transfer to two 1/2 pint jars.  Cover and chill overnight or up to 3 days.

To serve, spoon it into a small bowl, top with banana pieces and some crumbled up bacon.

A perfect, nutritional breakfast to make the night before.  Very thick, very filling and very good 🙂

  1. Looks like the perfect breakfast to both warm and fill you up! It seems most of the overnight recipes I’ve seen make huge quantities. I really like the fact that this one is only 2 servings. 🙂
