The Ultamate Chocolate, Cranberry and Banana Overnight Oats Recipe




It’s been a while since I've shared a
 recipe with you. And what better meal to start with than the most important one of the day, breakfast. I have made this overnight oats recipe a number of times now, playing around with the ingredients, to make it a little easier, more affordable and oh so delicious.  
To be honest it took me quite a while to understand what the fuss was about. I couldn't imagine that leaving oats and a bunch of other stuff in milk overnight could possibly taste that good, not to mention that it would become my go-to breakfast.
I'm absolutely obsessed and really hope you enjoy it too!



  1. Ingredients

  1. 3/4 cup rolled oats
  2. Handful of cranberries or raisins
  1. 1 cup almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  2. 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  3. 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  4. 1 teaspoon flax seeds
  1. 1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder
  1. 1/2 - 1 tablespoon honey (or your favourite sweetener)
  1. 1 ripe banana, chopped or mashed



  1. Method

In a mason jar, mix the oats and cocoa powder until well combined. Next layer the sesame, poppy and flax seeds. Add a layer of cranberries, just remember to leave enough space at the top to add your banana in the morning, and then pour in your milk of choice.  Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight (± 8 hours). 

In the morning, mix in the chopped or mashed banana and honey.



I'm curious, am I the only one that took a while to warm up to the whole overnight oats idea? And if you are a big fan let me know what your favourite recipe is. 



Lots of Love

  7. I used to soak oats in apple juice overnight and then add raspeberries and maple syrup. I'm eating porridge at the moment as it's not quite summer but I'm really keen to try this!!!
