Banana Overnight Oats With A “Chubby Hubby” Flavor

In my family bananas are a fruit favorite. They don’t last long around my children, but if I have any left over after snack time, I combine them with stomach-filling oats and have a dynamite “brekky”.

Why do you soak the oats overnight?

When you soak oats overnight, it’s almost like you‘re cooking them, but the process is much longer and slower. This way the oats don’t sustain damage from heat.

During the soaking, starches break down and natural phytic acid is reduced. This enables your body to use the nutrients from the oats more efficiently.

Substitutions that’ll work

You can change up this recipe by substituting almond or cashew butter for the peanut butter. You could also use almond extract rather than vanilla.

Rather than almond milk, you could substitute other types of milk depending on your taste and preference.

Changing out the nuts from peanuts to any variety of other nuts would also give it a diverse flavor but still maintain a nice “crunch“.

How to make overnight oats with water

If you don’t like or have milk on hand, you can soak them overnight in water. The taste may be more bland but will still work.

Usually it is recommended that you eat your overnight oats either with milk, or a milk substitute, such as almond, soy, coconut, hazelnut, or rice. However, water remains an alternative solution.
