Banana Nut Overnight Oats


I’ve been making my overnight oats with stevia lately.  I don’t notice the after taste in this recipe at all.  I love the fact that there is no sugar added.

If you do not want to used stevia, I will put other options in this recipe as well.

Recipe Notes

I thought putting the banana in the night before would make it too mushy. I make 5 of these at a time and store them in the fridge for easy breakfasts all week. Enjoy!

  1. Oh my, a new recipe for overnight oats!! Love these things and have one every morning. So, I will definitely be making this for tomorrow. Have to go eat the one I made last night, am getting hungry now! Thank you for all these great recipes, love them!!!!
  2. Wow I always assumed overnight oats were done in the crock pot or it was referring to prepping them the night before to cook in the oven in the morning, this sounds so much easier! Did it bother you at all to eat it cold at first? I've always had oatmeal hot but I suppose these could be heated up?
    1. I eat it cold, but you can heat it up right before eating it if you like as well. I really thought it would be weird cold, but I really like it.
  3. This looks great! You say that they keep in the fridge for a week. Do you need to use sterilised jars or just plain washed?
  4. What is your fave overnight oats recipe? I'd like to do this but want to know which one is the best to start with!:) my pantry is stocked.... Except ground vanilla beans - I SO need those!
    1. LOVE those vanilla beans. This one is my favorite and I have also been adding 2 tsp maca powder to it as well.
  5. Yet another great flavor combo! I've tried at least one of your overnight oats recipes and we really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to trying more of them.
  6. I made another one of your overnight oats recipes last week and only used steel cut oats but in the morning they were still somewhat hard. Any ideas what I did wrong? Will try again, because I know the family would love these. Thanks. Love your site.
    1. Steel cut oats still retain a little crunch. Personally I like that, but if you want a smoother oatmeal, try rolled oats. You can also try 1/2 steel cut 1/2 rolled.
  7. Yum! Trying this for tomorrow! When you said you add maca powder do u mean to this recipe? I may add some cacoa powder in the am if I am feeling chocolaty!
  8. Could you use quinoa? where do you get ground vanilla bean & what is a medjool date exactly? see it in so many recipes but wonder how it differs from regular dates or even prunes since i substitute those for reg dates sometimes in recipes thanks!
    1. I haven't tried these with quinoa yet. Maybe I will. The only place I can find the vanilla beans is on Amazon. The medjool dates are larger, but you can use other dates as well. You may just need to use more. Here is also a link to the medjool dates.
  9. Made these last night and ate them this morning. They are delicious!! This may be my new favorite!! So good, I am having them again tomorrow morning, too!!!!
  10. My husband made up a similar banana overnight oats but used coconut cream and a little Greek yoghurt in lieu of milk. The flavour combination was delicious! Also, he added the banana and let that soak too which I thought had a nice texture and taste. Your recipes are many recipes, so little time!
  11. After all these delicious overnight oats, what do you eat for lunch? I usually have half a turkey sandwich and am getting tired of that. For dinner we have salads and am happy with that, but lunch is kind of boring.
    1. I do a lot of cold salads or soups. Kinda boring, but that is what I like. I have many of them on the blog under salads and soup.
  12. Thank you for replying! Soup does sound good now that the days are getting cooler. Might have to start making those for lunch!!
  13. This recipe is delicious! I also added chopped walnuts and couldn't believe how delicious cold oatmeal could be. Can't wait to try the other overnight oats recipes posted.
  14. I have made these twice now and use pecans chips. They are so good in there and I am getting ready to make more for this week. They are all good tasting, but this is especially good!!
  15. Australia leads the world in research on coeliac disease. Oats in any form are definitely not gluten free and cannot be tolerated by coeliacs in any form.
  16. Love your overnight oats! You specify putting it in a glass jar? Any reason it can't go in stainless steel? I am making this while we are camping and just plan to bring stainless steel containers.
  17. Will old fashion oats work?? I'm still fairly new to all this and kinda want to use up what I have on hand before completely switching over. Money is tight, but my family's health is more important!
