Banoffee Overnight Oats

These banoffee overnight oats are inspired by the retro british dessert, and will save you time and stress in the morning!

To be honest, It took me a while to warm up to the idea of overnight oats, It always felt more satisfying to tuck into a steaming bowl of porridge, or crunchy granola and yoghurt. However, in the last year I’ve become a convert, and the reasons are twofold:

  1. Knowing that breakfast is already ready before I go to bed? I’m pretty sure I sleep better…
  2. BANOFFEE overnight oats

Yes, as soon as I discovered a recipe that tasted like the retro British dessert, I became hooked on the stuff. This breakfast is packed full of all kinds of lovely, nourishing ingredients- oats, chia seeds, peanut butter, dates, and of course banana! I absolutely love this before an early run or workout, it sticks with me but doesn’t feel heavy, and like I mentioned earlier, its ready and waiting for you when you get up!

    Considering I’m a huge fan of both Banoffee pie and oatmeal, I think I’m going to absolutely love this! Also, I’ve just started training for a half marathon and thought of you, because I knew I could come here and get some great tips on what to eat whilst training. Good to know this is an Emma-approved pre-run breakfast! Thanks lady!
