  • 40g (1/3 cup) Rolled Oats
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Banana, mashed
  • 1 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 120ml (1/2 cup) Almond Milk (or milk of choice)


  • Add oats, chia seeds, cinnamon to a glass jar / Tupperware container / bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add the mashed banana, peanut butter and a splash of the milk. Stir to fully combine.
  • Add the remaining milk, stir, cover and refrigerate overnight (or for a minimum of 4 hours)
  • Uncover and enjoy from the container/bowl the next day. Thin with a little more milk if desired and add toppings of choice.


  • Oats - use old-fashioned / rolled oats for the best consistency. Quick cook oats go too soggy and steal cut oats do not soften enough. 
  • Chia Seeds are optional they make the overnight super creamy and pudding-like.
  • Cinnamon is also optional  
  • Peanut Butter again is optional but adds a creamy texture and also boosts the protein content. 
  • Milk the milk type you choose is up to you.
