The recipe, as written below, below makes 1 serving. I doubled the recipe to have two of these pint jars of creamy oats ready to eat, so my photos reflect that. These yummy overnight oats are so easy to make!

Begin by adding all ingredients, except for banana and maple syrup to jar. You will need to give the ingredients a good stir, to fully mix them together. Once mixed, add banana slices. Drizzle with maple syrup, if using (maple syrup is optional; use only if a sweeter taste is desired).

Once ALL ingredients were mixed in, I added a tiny bit more coconut milk (about a Tablespoon) to loosen up the oats a bit, then gave it another good stir. The mixture came right up to the top of the cute little pint jars!

The containers were then covered tightly with plastic wrap, and placed in the refrigerator overnight.  In the morning, the oats had firmed up quite a bit (almost to a pudding consistency) by the time I was ready to eat!  If desired, garnish each jar with a couple fresh slices of banana, then dig in and enjoy this simple, yet filling breakfast!
