I keep a ready supply of frozen ripe bananas in a ziplock bag. Feel free to use the one on your counter, just mash well. I save all my glass PB, Brown Rice syrup etc. jars and reuse them for overnight oats. The possibilities are endless, try with a sprinkle of chocolate chips or a swirl of peanut butter.
  • Half a frozen banana

  • 2 tbl. – 1/4 cup Steel Cut Oats

  • Sweetener of choice (Agave, Honey or Zsweet)
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • Sprinkle of spices: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves
  • Almond milk
  • sprinkle of raisins
  1. Stick banana in jar, microwave 20-40 seconds or until melted.
  2. Add oats, spices, vanilla, Chia seeds, raisins, sweetener, and enough milk to cover.
  3. Stir, taste, adjust seasonings & sweetener.
  4. Put on lid, stick in fridge overnight.
  5. Add more liquid if needed. Eat as is or microwave for 1 1/2- 2 minutes.

Hey Jen! This sounds yummy, so I’m going to try it! I have some questions though b/c I’m not that fancy 🙂 Where can I get the Chia seeds? Can I use regular milk rather than Almond milk- I buy my kids organic milk. Also, I’ve never bought Steel cut oats before. Are these in the same place as the other oats? Thanks so much for your help. 🙂

Chia seeds are sold by Bob’s Red Mill brand and you can find them at many stores now. In our local Wegman’s they are in the Natural Market section, in the baking aisle, right across from the flours. Yes, you can use organic milk and steel cut oats are definitely in the Natural Marketplace section or next to the regular oatmeal (usually in a tin and maybe called Irish oats there). They are just a more whole food version of oatmeal; the whole oat groat that are cut instead of rolled, steamed and toasted. They also sell them in bulk section of Wegman’s Natural Market for a better buy. Let me know if you need a grocery store buddy trip : ).
