banana walnut overnight oats

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!

  1. Does each bowl get the amounts in the ingredient list or is the ingredient list to be split in half for the banana oatmeal? Thanks!

      1. how many days will these jars of oatmeal stay fresh in the fridge? Can you make them up on sunday night for the weekdays .

        1. Sherry, Most of our overnight oatmeal recipes will last up to three days in the fridge. If you decide to
          use dairy, I would recommend using the recipe by the next day.
