Overnight oats with Banana and Peanut Butter

Another firm favourite – overnight oats πŸ™‚ Haven’t tried it before? It is easy, convenient and delicious.

The basics are pretty straight-forward – raw oats with yogurt or milk, left overnight in the fridge – ready for breakfast!Β  No cooking required! πŸ™‚

You can add fruit, nuts, berries, honey and spices as well – very versatile indeed!Β  πŸ™‚Β  I will post more ideas at a later stage!

I usually layer the ingredients in a container (looks lovely in glass bottles) – raw oats first, then milk/yogurt, then fruit/nuts, etc.

This time I blended it all together – it works well either way!

Blend all the ingredients together, scoop into 2 containers and leave overnight in the fridge.Β  And enjoy the next morning!
