Banana Overnight Oats

 These have been my go to breakfast for the last couple weeks during these HOT summer days. This breakfast is definitely more hearty, healthy, and filling than your average breakfast cereal. Not to mention that it takes a few minutes to prepare the night before and in the morning just grab and go. You can certainly change up the ingredients to what you enjoy and be excited every morning to consume your oats. Check out another overnight oat recipe here, Pumpkin.
Banana Overnight Oats: (serves 1)
Ingredients:
1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup water
1/3 milk or yogurt
1/2 banana, mashed *
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon

Optional Toppings:
Fresh/ dried fruit
Nuts/Seeds
Nut Butter
Cereal
Granola
Crumbled muffin

* The banana acts as the sweetener as well, but if you are not a fan of banana, replace with 1 tbsp of your choice sweetener.

Directions:
The night before combine all the ingredients in a bowl or tupper ware, place in fridge. In the morning, oat mixture will be thick, top with desired ingredients, and enjoy.
