Coconut Banana Overnight Oats are one of my favorite make-ahead breakfast recipes. This recipe is so easy and so delicious!

Disclosure

Overnight oats are one of my favorite make-ahead breakfasts. Sure, it’s easy enough to cook a pot of oatmeal in the morning. But in the groggy haze of the early hours, I don’t want to do anything I don’t have to do. If my oatmeal is ready to eat when I walk into the kitchen, it’s that much easier to get myself out of bed.

These Coconut Banana Overnight Oats are delicious and hearty. I love these flavors together, and the minimal sweetness is perfect for me. I like to warm this up on the stovetop before eating it, but my husband is happy with overnight oats right out of the fridge. He brings them to work on busy mornings, successfully dodging the fast food options he passes on his way there. This is faster than fast food, and it’s much healthier, too.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup coconut milk or other milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 medium ripe banana mashed
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tbs maple syrup or to taste
  • Pineapple or other fruit for garnish

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, coconut milk, vanilla extract, mashed banana, and shredded coconut. Taste the mixture to see if it needs the maple syrup. This will depend on the ripeness of the banana. Stir in the maple syrup if needed.
  • Transfer the mixture to an airtight container and refrigerate. I love these jars.
  • Serve warm, cold, or at room temperature. Garnish with fruit.
  • This will keep for several days in the refrigerator.

  1. Since the oatmeal stays in the refrigerator is it an absolute must to use airtight jars or are Tupperware type containers ok?

  2. I can’t agree more. Overnight oats makes life in the early mornings so much easier. My go to is always oats and coconut milk with some time of fruit as well so I know I will love your combo!

    1. Thanks, Christina. It’s such an easy breakfast with so many combos! I’m glad to hear you’re on the same wavelength. 🙂

  3. I don’t do this enough and have been itching to make overnight oats more often. I was on vacation a few weeks ago, and every morning we ate these awesome overnight oats at the hotel made w/ mango and almonds. I’m going to give this a try for sure!

  4. gosh, I have tried overnight oats before and wasn’t a fan but you are making me want to try them again! PS– do you heat your oats before you eat them?
