Flavor: This overnight oats recipe has a comforting flavor. You’ll taste a hint of almond from the almond milk, but the bananas and strawberries take center stage.
Texture: Overnight oats can be a little hard to get used to. Some love them…others don’t. The texture is not the same as oatmeal. It’s creamier and more “liquidy”. You can adjust the thickness by adding more milk or less oats. The chia seeds will also “plump”, thickening the mixture.
Method: Layer in a jar and pop into the fridge overnight. Super easy! No cooking, no baking. It works its magic while you sleep.
How to Make Overnight Oats
This easy strawberry banana overnight oats breakfast is loaded with everything that is good for you. It starts with old-fashioned oats, almond milk, chia seeds, a little Greek yogurt, vanilla, chocolate chips, strawberries and maple syrup for sweetness. I then mix this up in a bowl. Put the bananas on the bottom of the jar so that they don’t turn brown as quickly. Fill the jars with the oat mixture, cover and refrigerate overnight.
When the morning comes, top with chopped nuts, whipped cream a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a cherry if you’d like.
Want to make it gluten free? Use gluten free oats.
If you want you can leave out the maple syrup and use honey or even agave. I just love maple or brown sugar in my oatmeal.
Add a touch of peanut butter or almond butter for more protein.

How long / how many days can they be stored in the fridge in the mason jars before they go bad? I’m a single college student and was wondering if they would work well for meal prep for throughout the week.
