Love breakfast all ready and done for you? What if you could have breakfast that tastes like dessert?! Welcome to Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats!
I am not a huge fan of oatmeal, but when it comes to make breakfast like dessert with oatmeal, I’m all for it! I love making tasty breakfast recipes, especially this Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats! 🙂 This is my favorite way to eat cold oatmeal and my absolute favorite way to eat hot oatmeal is my oatmeal breakfast banana split recipe, its a must try!
You feel like you’re eating dessert, but you’re really eating a healthy breakfast. You could easily leave off the whip cream and cherry on top. By leaving off the whip cream it’s also dairy free too.
Want to make it gluten free? Use gluten free oats! I prefer a fresh cherry on top, but despite my best efforts in searching I couldn’t find any since they’re not in season yet, so sad, but so happy when they are in season and I eat them like candy.
To make this I usually make it the night before. It’s enough to make 4 servings for us. I like to use little mason jars for my daughter and then for my husband a large one. For me, I just eat whatever my little one doesn’t eat because that’s what moms do, right?
It has plenty of banana, but you could even split a new banana and pour this deliciousness right over top. My goodness you guys.. So good!
If you want you can leave out the maple syrup and use something like honey or even agave. I just love maple or brown sugar in my oatmeal.
Let the kids help you make this recipe and they’ll be excited to see what their breakfast looks like in the morning! I was skeptical about overnight oatmeal to be honest, but I love the cold oats rather than the warm ones.
If I eat warm oats I need tons of berries and banana to get it down. I seriously force feed myself the stuff, ha!
With overnight oats I feel like I’m eating a dessert and breakfast has never tasted so good! There are so many ways to make them and you really can’t go wrong with overnight oats. I like to use chocolate and peanut butter too, which my little one is a huge fan of making and eating with me.
