How to Make Banana Overnight Oats

We’re BIG fans of overnight oats here at Fit Foodie Finds, and have lots of great overnight oats recipes on our site, but if this is your first time making overnight oats, have no fear! This is easy peasy, and you’ll be eating the most delicious creamy banana overnight oats in no time. Let’s get into it.

Step 1: Mash Bananas

Overripe bananas are easiest to mash, but if you don’t have any on hand, ripe bananas will also work. If you have overripe bananas stored in your freezer (or even better if you have sliced frozen nanners in your freezer!), place them on a plate and defrost in the microwave until they’re soft enough to mash.

Grab a medium-sized Tupperware or bowl with a lid and mash your bananas in it. You’ll be using this bowl to store your overnight oats in the fridge, so make sure there’s enough space for all the ingredients. Plus, then you don’t have to wash multiple dishes!

Step 2: Mix it Up!

Add the rest of your ingredients to the bowl with the mashed bananas, including:

  • Rolled oats
  • Chia seeds
  • Almond milk
  • Greek yogurt
  • Honey
  • Vanilla extract

Give the whole thing a big stir until all the ingredients are combined, and cover the bowl and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. This will give the oats and chia seeds enough time to perfectly soften into the best overnight oats you’ve ever had.

Step 3: Top and Enjoy!

This recipe serves 6, so it can easily be halved or doubled depending on how many you’re meal prepping for. Separate into meal prep containers or Mason jars to enjoy on the go, and you’re on your way to a delicious and nutritious start to the day.

Feel free to top with your favorite overnight oats toppings, or whatever you have on-hand. We love using:

  • Sliced bananas
  • Sliced berries
  • Sliced apples
  • Nut butters
  • Granola
  • Dried fruit
  • Diced nuts

Make them Blended Overnight Oats!

If you love a smooth and creamy overnight oats recipe, then blended overnight oats are for you.

  1. Add all of the ingredients into a high-speed blender.
  2. Blend on high for about a minute. This will pulverize the oats and make them super creamy.
  3. Transfer the overnight oats into an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  4. In the morning, you can eat as-is, or add a splash of milk to thin things out a bit.
