Banana Walnut Overnight Oatmeal

Overnight oats are trending these days – and for good reason! Instead of lingering by the stove waiting for oats to simmer and thicken, prepare this overnight oatmeal by throwing ingredients into a jar and popping it in the refrigerator. Oats absorb milk and flavor from added spices overnight, forming a deliciously creamy grab-and-go breakfast!

This recipe packs the mouthwatering goodness of a banana walnut muffin into an uber-nutritious oatmeal. Raw honey and a dash of cinnamon add satisfying sweetness, while chia seeds bump up the fiber content. Fast and a cinch to prepare, this no-cook, no-bake morning meal will get you up and keep you going all day long!
