Banana Coconut Overnight Oats

Hmmmmm. These things have intrigued me and kinda scared me all at the same time for quite awhile now!! But, don’t knock it till you try it, right? I’m the kind of person who HAS to try something for myself before I decide anything about it. It’s good to hear other opinions…but…. 
So I decided tonight’s the night 😊 Although, I had to find a recipe that really appealed to me (and that I already had ingredients for!). I basically took some from here and some from there and made this one up. A lot of them called for either chia seeds or flax seeds and I used neither this time around.   

  
Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 mashed banana 
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut

Mix all the ingredients in small bowl then transfer to medium sized (abt 16 oz) mason jar. Screw lid on tight and place in fridge overnight! 

Ok…I’ll be trying this in the morn…but I hear you can have them cold or warmed up and even garnish with extra fruit (I might drizzle some peanut butter over mine! 😍) 

I’ll let ya know my verdict in the morning… 

I’m the meantime I want to hear your favorite recipes if you’ve tried this!!

xoxo,
