Banana Overnight Oats

This recipe is ridiculously easy and quick to make, require no fancy ingredients or kitchen equipment. You could make them with ease and they’ll keep you full till lunchtime thanks to slow release carbohydrates (oats), fibre-rich bananas, highly satiating nut butter and whatever fruit you have to hand.


  • 1 generous cup jumbo* rolled oats (GF certified if needed)
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed up with a fork
  • 1-2 tbsp 100% natural almond butter (peanut butter or tahini will work well here too)
  • ground cinnamon, to taste
  • a handful of nuts and seeds
  • seasonal fruit, for garnish


  • Divide oats between two bowls (or if you are a Duncan, that’s just one portion) and stir approximately 2-3 tablespoons of water (you can use plant milk if you have it handy) into each bowl.
  • Add mashed up bananas and mix well to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes for the oats to soften.
  • Drizzle with nut butter and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Top with nuts and seeds and chopped fruit.


*I do not recommend using quick oats as they turn into an unpleasant mush.
Enjoy Xx
