Banana Oats Overnight Bread – Joy Power

I call this overnight goat flour – but not because it contains goat’s milk (it doesn’t!), it’s simply “The greatest of all time All Night Oats – Packed with energizing ingredients and a candy-like flavor. It’s very creamy and has all the comforting texture of banana bread…in dessert form.

While oatmeal is usually eaten warm, this type is eaten cold straight from the refrigerator. It reminds me of candy or chilled porridge. Simply mix all the ingredients together and allow the oats to sit and swell in the refrigerator. It takes about 3 hours to set, but since it’s so convenient to prepare the night before, we usually leave it on overnight hence the name ‘overnight oats’. I find it a perfect remedy for hectic morning meals. Believe me, you don’t want to miss it Felt tired on this. But hey, if you prefer a warm breakfast, you can easily heat it up in the microwave before eating (just as amazing).

Delightful note: The more ripe the bananas you use, the sweeter they will be, and the easier it will be to mash. If the banana is firm, you can peel and slice it and put it in the microwave for about 20 seconds until soft (it will blend more smoothly with the other ingredients). And for the ultimate crunchy, creamy scoop, wait until right before serving to add the toasted pecans (they will soften if they sit in the oat mixture overnight) too, while I personally think this is sweet enough without adding honey or maple syrup, feel free to mix Put in 1 to 2 teaspoons if you decide it needs some. Of course, there’s always the option of sprinkling some dark chocolate chips too – I mean “chocolate chip banana bread” for breakfast? Yes please!
