Part of me wants to shout this recipe on the rooftops because it’s SO YUMMY, and then there’s this little part of me wants to keep this delicious little masterpiece a secret because it’s just seriously that mouthwatering!
Luckily, the angel on my shoulder won so I’m sharing it with you all!
Overnight oats are one of the best ways to meal prep for the week. It’s super quick, easy, healthy and very versatile. If you aren’t familiar with this breaky option, you literally just throw oats, fruit and nut milk in a jar, mix it up and leave it in the fridge overnight. You can add other super foods to it as well like hemp seeds, chia seeds, cacao nibs, ground flax, spices, and stevia or maple syrup to sweeten.
I usually like making strawberry/blueberry, almond butter banana, or cinnamon apple… but this time I felt like getting fancy!
Bananas Foster is one of my Dad’s favorite recipes and the caramelized, gooey bananas have left a lasting impression on me. My goal was to create a very healthy version of this treat and be able to eat “dessert” for breakfast. And it was a success!!
This recipe takes one extra step of cooking the bananas, but let me tell you, the aroma of banana/cinnamon/maple that engulfs the air while you’re cooking, alone makes it worth it!!
Okay, I know I personally get annoyed when bloggers “talk” too much and I start thinking, “Get to the recipe already!” Just me? 😉
So here it is…
