Preparing the overnight oats
Pour the milk over the oatmeal and mix well.
Crush one half of the banana with the fork and mix it into the oats. Add a protein powder of your choice.
Cut the other half of the banana into slices and put it on top of the oats. Add the peanut butter as well.
Cover everything and let it soak in the fridge overnight.
Open the next day. Stir and then dig in.
The term overnight oats sounds quite adventurous, but there is no hidden meaning, it is literally oatmeal that has soaked overnight. The milk you use to soak the oats in is entirely down to personal preference. You can use almond, soy or hazelnut milk for a vegan alternative and instead of the whey protein, simply add our Vegan Protein by foodspring to the mix.
These overnight oats can be easily changed up with different fruits, like strawberries or raspberries.
