Overnight Oats

Oatmeal has always been a favorite of mine. I will choose oatmeal over most breakfast foods any day. It's filling, healthy, and the flavor combinations are endless. From brown sugar to blueberries, and granola toppings to honey drizzle, I absolutely love oatmeal. 

I'll be honest, I had never really heard of overnight oats until about a month ago, and I didn't fully understand the concept until last week. But now, I've jumped on the bandwagon and I'm giving you a recipe for a pre-made, delicious, and healthy breakfast. 

This first combination of flavors was found online. But now that I [think] I have the hang of it, I'm going into full-on experimentation mode. I'm thinking almond butter + blueberries + flax? You'll have to check back to see!

The best part really may be that this recipe makes three servings which means three breakfasts are taken care of. Oh, and you get to eat breakfast out of a mason jar. 

I hope you enjoy. Happy breakfasts to you all. {recipe below}


Coca Banana Overnight Oats
Makes three, 8 oz. servings

2 cups Old Fashioned oats
1.5 cups of milk (I used almond)
1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (any yogurt will do)
1 banana, mashed
2 teaspoons coca powder
Toppings of your choice - I used sliced almonds. Also dry a drizzle of honey, roasted pecans, or granola. 


1. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until well combined. Spoon evenly into mason jars. Allow to refrigerate overnight. Each jar will last 2-3 days if tightly sealed and refrigerated.
