As a busy blogger who is constantly on the go, the one thing I always make time for is eating breakfast! During the winter season, I prefer eating something warm in the morning like an egg breakfast sandwich or a bowl of oatmeal. Most of the time it’s oatmeal; however, I’ve been enjoying a chilled version of it lately that doesn’t require cooking on the stove or in the microwave. My new wintertime fave is Overnight Oats and honestly, I’d take it over hot oats any day.
Overnight oats, is a creamier and denser version of rolled oats that’s super easy to make. The rolled oats soak in a liquid mixture that softens it to perfection when left overnight in the fridge. I love adding fresh fruit toppings, and when I whip them up in a jar, it makes the perfect grab-and-go breakfast! Today, I’m sharing an overnight oats recipe that I come back to over and over again because it’s just so darn tasty.
Banana & Chocolate Chip Overnight Oats
- ⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ⅔ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk – or milk of choice
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds or ground flaxseed (I used a mixed version of both)
- ½ ripe banana, chopped or mashed
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened chocolate chips
- 1 packet of Whole Earth Sweetener Turbinado Raw Cane 50 (topping)
Step 1. Mix together all ingredients (except Whole Earth Sweetener Turbinado Raw Cane 50) in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Step 2. Spoon into a jar with an air tight lid and refrigerate the mixture overnight (it’s ready in about 4 hours but overnight is best).
Step 3. Take mixture out of the fridge and into a serving bowl.
Step 4. Top with sliced bananas, a few chocolate chips and a bit of Whole Earth Sweetener. Enjoy!
I also like to top it off with a pinch of sweetener especially if the banana is a bit on the un-ripe side. Sprinkling a bit of Whole Earth Sweetener Turbinado Raw Cane 50 added the perfect amount of sweetness I needed to enjoy my breakfast. What I love most about Whole Earth Sweetener Turbinado Raw Cane 50 is that it has half the calories of traditional sugar per serving and uses the highest quality of natural ingredients.

I’ve been enjoying this recipe every morning because it keeps me full and energized to start my day. I’ll make a week’s worth of jars over the weekend to take for quick breakfasts during the work week. That’s why overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for those who don’t have the time to make a morning meal.
Why don’t you give it a try, and let me know what you think!
