What you will need for the oats

Oat Ingredients

  • 1/2 banana: a banana that is just beginning to get spotty is best because it is soft and easy so mash, and is also very sweet.
  • 1/4 cup oat flour*: see notes below. You can make your own oat flour, or use store bought.
  • 1 tbsp chocolate protein powder: this is optional, but adds extra protein and tastes delicious. You can also use vanilla protein powder, if you do not have chocolate.
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder: cacao powder nutritious and is high in iron, magnesium, and potassium. This is why I prefer baking with cacao powder, but you can definitely substitute the cacao for cocoa if you don’t have any on hand. Here is a brand of cacao that I like to use, but there are many others.
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter: I like using the natural peanut butter that only had peanuts and salt as the ingredients. I like it because there aren’t any unnecessary extra ingredients, and it also had really great runny texture that works great for this recipe.
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)*: see notes below.
  • 1/4 cup dairy free yogurt: you can use any kind of dairy free yogurt. I like coconut yogurt. If you are not vegan, you can also use regular yogurt, of course.
  • 1 tbsp dairy free milk (optional)*: see notes below.
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • dash of salt

Glaze Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp dairy-free yogurt
  • 2 tsp chocolate protein powder (or cacao powder)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)*
  • peanut butter

Notes

*Oats: if you don’t have oat flour, you can blend oats to create your own oat flour. For this recipe, blend just over 1/4 of oats to get 1/4 cup of oat flour.

*Maple Syrup: if you are using already sweetener yogurt, or you want less sugar, you can leave out the maple syrup.

*Milk: if you prefer the oats really thick, don’t add the milk. If you want them to be runnier, add it.

How to make the blended oats

In a bowl, start by mashing the banana with a fork.

Then add the oat flour, protein, cacao, peanut butter, maple, yogurt, milk, vanilla, and salt.

Combine them well using a fork or spoon.

You can transfer the oats to another smaller bowl, or eat them from the same bowl. I like to mix the ingredients in a larger bowl bc I make a mess and then transfer the oats to a smaller bowl that’s better suited for eating them.

Smooth out the oats on top so that you have an even layer.

Next, create the glaze layer.

Combine the yogurt, protein or cacao, and maple syrup.

Spread the chocolate glaze on top of the oats. I decided to add some peanut butter on top of the oats and swirl it around to make it pretty. I also added strawberries.

You can make these oats at night and refrigerate them so that you have breakfast ready in the morning, or you can enjoy them right away!

How to store these oats?

You can eat these overnight oats right away (I love making them as a quick dessert that’s ready in 5 minutes!). You can also store them in a jar or airtight container in the fridge overnight and have your breakfast ready to go in the morning! They get even thicker and creamier if stored overnight.

How long do the blended overnight oats last?

Because none of the ingredients in these go bad very quickly (except for the banana), these will last for about a week in the fridge. This is great because you can meal prep your breakfast on Sunday for the whole week! I recommend leaving out the banana, and then mashing it up and adding it to the rest of the oats once you’re ready to enjoy them.
