Summer passed by quickly, as it always does, in all its glory of outdoor fun and quality family time. Somehow we are already deep in the flurry of back to school activity. I cannot believe that I have two children in school this year. The amount of planning for managing two school schedules, meetings, and extracurricular activities is enough to make me go bananas! It does get easier once we adjust to the new routine, doesn’t it? You can lie to me here; I’ll gladly accept your reassurances. In my efforts to make sure we eat well, regardless of the chaos around us, I started making overnight oats. These Bananas Foster Overnight Oats are banana-rific. I’m not sure if banana-rific is a word, but we’ll just go with it.
At Walmart, I found Sir Bananas® Bananamilk in the milk aisle. It contains 7 grams of protein per serving, 8 essential nutrients, real bananas, no artificial flavors, sweeteners or colors, and it’s gluten free. Basically, it has all of the things I look for and none of the things I don’t want! You will also need oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and a banana.
Slice 1/4 of a banana for your overnight oats. Freeze the rest for smoothies, or just eat it for a snack – I won’t tell. Measure out 1/2 cup of Sir Bananas® Bananamilk. I like to add 1/4 cup, then add my dry ingredients before adding the other 1/4 cup. It really doesn’t make a difference and it probably just adds a step, but I’m weird like that. You will need 1/4 cup of oats, 1 tsp brown sugar, 1/8 tsp vanilla extract and a pinch of cinnamon.
If you’re like me and would rather your overnight oats be sweet instead of tangy, you’ll love this recipe because it doesn’t require yogurt! Once you add all your ingredients to the jar, cover it. Shake it. Refrigerate it overnight, and breakfast is ready for you in the morning when it’s time to grab and go.
I sprinkled chopped pecans for an added crunch. Walnuts would also be delicious! I like to serve it with a glass of Sir Bananas® Chocolate Bananamilk. This milk is bananas! It’s something the whole family will love.
