You are 5 ingredients away from these filling and delicious Vegan Chocolate Banana Overnight Oats. With just rolled oats, Almond Breeze Chocolate Almondmilk, mashed banana, chia seeds, and salt, you can prep breakfast or snack for the workday in 5 minutes the night before. Easy As Breeze!
I have posted a recipe for muesli before, a Swiss breakfast food that can be eaten dry or soaked in milk. Having always thought of myself as a hot oatmeal fan, I hadn’t experimented much with overnight oatmeal recipes – since the usual additional of yogurt wasn’t very appealing.
After trying this version, I continued experimenting to find my favorite combination of flavors and the perfect texture.
So here we are, with some overnight soaked oats – because these Chocolate Banana Overnight Oats changed my mind about vegan overnight oats recipes! Instead of yogurt to bind it all together, I use chia seeds for the thickener.
I still can’t believe how wonderful these are, just with 5 ingredients. The chocolate almond milk brings a lot of richness, creaminess, and depth of flavor – so try to get your hands on it. *Excuse me while I go take a quick break to sip from the carton.*
- ⅓ cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup Almond Breeze Chocolate Almondmilk
- ½ banana, mashed
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- Pinch of salt
- In a small jar, combine rolled oats, chocolate almond milk, mashed banana (should be about ¼ cup), chia seeds, and salt. Stir well.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours to overnight.
- Stir and enjoy plain or with your favorite toppings (pictured is sliced banana, unsweetened coconut, and goji berries).
I haven’t yet tried with cocoa powder and regular almond milk, but you will likely also need a splash of vanilla in that case. I’m already brainstorming other flavors for vegan overnight oats recipes!
Have you tried overnight oats?
If yes, have you use yogurt, chia seeds, or something else to make that thick consistency? Leave a link if you love a recipe you think I should try!
