Cinnamon Banana Overnight Oats Tips

Make ahead cinnamon banana overnight oats for breakfast this week. Assemble the staple ingredients with the help of these tips and tricks to keep your oatmeal enjoyable for each and every bite.

  • Store in overnight oats jars in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. The meal prep is then a ready-to-go breakfast or mid-afternoon snack for the day.
  • Instead of quick oats, go with rolled oats for this recipe. The quick oats are thinner and have less texture than rolled oats, which results in a mushy consistency.
  • If the mixture seems too thick when serving, add more yogurt or liquid to make it porridge-like. A 2:1 ratio liquid to overnight oats is a general guideline.
  • Add a scoop of Greek yogurt to make a creamy taste.
  • On a workout day, add a scoop of protein powder instead of the chia seeds for more nutritional boost.
  • Eat within 5 days of preparing so that the individual ingredients don’t spoil.
