3 New Overnight Oat Recipes!

Overnight oatmeal has been my "thing" for a few months now, which inevitably resulted in me creating recipes that were never shared with you. Most of them align with my stove-top recipes, so I didn't feel too guilty about it. However, lately, I've been enjoying these so much that I just had to put them on your radar!

  1. I find that hidden banana oatmeal works excellent on the stovetop or in the microwave because the banana is able to melt and get equally distributed throughout. But I have been having a lot of trouble creating the same consistency in my overnight oats. The banana seems to stay in chunks and doesn't evenly distribute the sweetness. Tips?

    1. I actually have this issue, too, but I think I've gotten so used to it that it doesn't bother me anymore. You could try putting all the wet ingredients (or basically everything except the oats or anything else you want to stay "whole") in a small blender so it will be almost pureed. That way the bananas are distributed throughout the mixture before the oats even come into the picture. Let me know if you have any success!

    2. i now make my overnight oats in mason jars specifically so that i can give it a good shake a couple of times between when i mix it up and when i eat it up. this eliminated any mixing problems i've had.

      just my $0.02 worth.

  4. Have you ever made a variation of salted caramel pretzel overnight oatmeal? I think that'd be yummmmmmmy.

    1. That would be delicious, but I'd have to make my own caramel with vegan ingredients to be satisfied with it, and that would take a lot of work. :P

  5. If you didn't want to use a banana, what would you substitute it with?

    1. 2-3 chopped dates OR 1 tbsp of liquid sweetener (maple syrup, agave, honey, etc.) :)
