For the Overnight Oats: 1 large banana - ripe See Note 1 ¼ cup peanut butter See Note 2 1 tablespoon maple syrup 1 cup (80 g) old fashioned rolled oats 1 ¼ cup (300 ml) milk - I use almond or oat See Note 3 1 tablespoon chia seeds See Note 4 Toppings (optional): Greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt peanuts - roughly chopped coconut flakes and banana - freshly sliced when serving
In a medium-size bowl, mash the banana. Add the peanut butter and maple syrup to the banana and mix until well combined. Add the milk, oats and chia seeds and stir to combine. Cover the bowl with clingwrap, or divide the mixture into two glasses or mason jars and cover. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Serve with toppings of your choice and additional milk if the mixture is too thick.
Banana: for the best flavour and sweetness, make sure your banana is ripe.
Peanut Butter: use smooth or crunchy - whatever you prefer.
Milk: use milk of your choice. I use almond or oat milk. Add more milk when serving if you prefer a thinner texture.
Tablespoon: we use a standard Australian tablespoon which is 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
Toppings: the toppings are optional (and are not included in the nutritional information). Use toppings of your liking - see suggestions above.
