These overnight oats are probably done and dusted now. When this idea first came in, a few years ago it was religiously doing the rounds on everybody's instagram and facebook feeds. I'm not a very big fan of this to be frank, but it definitely works if you are one of those busy people who don't have time in the mornings to sit down to eat a good breakfast...........leave alone whip up a decent breakfast!!!!!!! 
                       Overnight oats are done and refrigerated the night before. it stays good for 5 days! So you can mix and match the toppings so you don't get bored! 

oats - 1/2 cup (I used quick cook oats. but any type of oats will do)
milk - 1 and 1/2 cup (see notes)
chia seeds - 4 tsps
ripe bananas - 2
cinnamon powder - 1 tsp
walnuts, chopped - 3 tbsps

  • Mash the bananas roughly if you prefer it chunky...... or smooth if you like it that way!
  • In a bowl mix the oats, milk, chia seeds, bananas, cinnamon powder and walnuts. 
  • Divide it into 2 jars. close and refrigerate overnight for breakfast the next day!
  • You can top with fresh fruit if you prefer just before you eat.

  • I used low fat milk for this recipe. but you can use any type of milk. almond tastes good too.
  • You can even use 3/4 cup milk and 3/4 cup yoghurt if you are a yoghurt person.
