Breakfast is a meal that needs to give you the necessary sustenance to tackle the day. While it can be challenging for many of us to have a full meal early in the morning, it is vital to obtain the necessary nutrients from the food you consume.

If you're looking for a new take on your mundane oats, we have the perfect recipe for you. This overnight oats dish is packed with protein for sustained energy. Additionally, some of the ingredients can be substituted to take into consideration your tastes and possibly allergies. Berries can be added instead of bananas, you can use flax seeds instead of chia, or use unsweetened nut milk or nut butter. Get creative and make it your own.

After resting overnight, this oatmeal takes about five minutes to prepare, making them fantastic for busy mornings. This meal serves two, but you could always double up if you’re preparing this breakfast for your entire family. Follow this simple recipe and have the best breakfast plan for your week.


• 1 large banana, sliced (or any other fruit of your choice)

• 2 tablespoons of unsweetened almond butter

• 2 teaspoons chia seeds

• 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats

• 1¼ cup of unsweetened almond milk

• 1 teaspoon raw honey

• ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

• A few fresh or frozen berries to top


• You’ll need two wide-mouth jars or similar containers with a secure fitting lid.

• In a bowl or jug, mix the milk, honey, and vanilla extract and then set aside.

• In your jars or containers, layer the ingredients: 3-4 slices of banana, 2 dollops of almond butter, ¼ teaspoon chia seeds, ¼ cup oats, then repeat two or three times until there is a 3-4 cm gap between the ingredients and top of the jar.

• Pour the milk mixture over the oats leaving about a 2 cm gap at the top to allow your oats to expand as they soak.

• Stick a knife or fork through to the bottom of the container a few times to make sure the milk soaks all the way down.

• Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
