Banana Overnight Oats Recipe
This is a delicious and refreshing breakfast; loaded with nutrients, protein, and a high carb content to give you a boost of energy for the day. Enjoy this banana overnight oats recipe.
This recipe calls for mint, which is an excellent source of antioxidants, especially when compared to other herbs and spices. It has greek yogurt which is a great way to obtain a lean source of protein, and banana which is loaded with fiber – both soluble and insoluble.
2 ½ tsp fresh mint (chopped)
1 banana (~4 oz)
½ cups rolled oats (uncooked) (~1 ¾ oz)
1 tbsp chia seeds (~¼ oz)
½ cups Greek yogurt, plain (low-fat) (~5 oz)
optional: ½ tsp cinnamon
optional: ½ tsp vanilla extract
optional: ¼ cups water
Chia seeds in the banana overnight oats recipe can provide you with manganese, magnesium, calcium, zinc, and almost all the carbs in them are fiber. Although I mentioned the cacao and cinnamon are optional, I would encourage you to add them in. By doing so you are adding in ingredients that prevent premature oxidation of cells which can keep your skin looking young.
This breakfast of champions contains sulfur which helps skin and nail growth, better skin texture, it has effects on your blood sugar which prevents your risk of diabetes. One thing I definitely notice about this breakfast is that it’s very filling.
This would easily be able to hold you over until lunch if you are someone who experiences hunger before then. This breakfast contains lots of fiber, which is why it promotes a feeling of fullness. If you don’t feel like using banana you could absolutely switch it with a fruit such as strawberry, blueberry, apple, or orange.
