I love banana bread, but who has time for freshly baked banana bread in the morning? Like with my carrot cake overnight oats, these banana bread overnight nights are reminiscent of your favorite baked bread but in oatmeal form!

They also couldn’t be easier to make! With only a handful of ingredients, make it at night, and it’s ready in the morning.

Ingredient Notes

  • Rolled Oats: Rolled oats are my preferred oat for this recipe, but quick cooking or instant oats will also work. However, you won’t need as much liquid if you use those. Steel-cut oats won’t work the same way.
  • Milk: I like almond or soy milk for this recipe, but any unsweetened milk will work. Adding soy or cow’s milk will add 8 g of protein per serving.
  • Chia Seeds: Chia seeds add extra fiber and protein but can be omitted or swapped for flax or hemp seeds.
  • Walnuts: I love walnuts in my banana bread, but you can omit or use chopped almonds if desired.
  • Vanilla and Cinnamon: The addition of both vanilla and cinnamon makes these banana bread overnight oats taste more cake-like!

How to Make Banana Bread Overnight Oats

Mix together everything in a jar

Jar With Banana Bread And Oats

Mash the banana and add the rest of the ingredients to a sealable jar. Make sure to mix well so the banana is mixed into all of the oats.

Place in fridge overnight

Tips for Success

The riper the banana, the more sweet these overnight oats will be. I use a fork to mash the banana at the bottom of a mason jar, and then add in all of the ingredients and stir very well.

I like my overnight oats to be fairly creamy, so I often use 3/4 cup of milk. If you end up using instant oats, you might not need as much. If you omit the chia seeds, I’d start with only 1/2 cup of milk and see if you need more.
