How To Make Overnight Banana Coconut Oats

In an airtight container with a lid (I used a pint sized Mason jar), place rolled oats, sliced banana, vanilla extract, chia seeds, shredded coconut, and pure maple syrup. NOTE: If you want more coconut flavor, you can also add a very small bit of coconut extract.  I didn’t find it necessary, but it is an option!

Oats, chia seeds, coconut, bananas and maple syrup are placed in a mason jar.

Add unsweetened coconut milk until the oats are fully covered. Give the ingredients a good stir, until they are completely mixed together. If necessary, you might need to add a bit more coconut milk to ensure the ingredients are covered.

Canned coconut milk is added to jar with overnight banana coconut oats.

This is what the overnight banana coconut oats looked like after mixing.  Place a lid on the jar or container, and refrigerate overnight.

Overnight Banana Coconut Oats are mixed in jar, then refrigerated overnight.

The next morning, remove jar from refrigerator and remove lid.  Overnight the oats will have absorbed quite a bit of the coconut milk, leaving a creamy, thicker consistency of oats. You can add in a bit more coconut milk, to thin out the oats more and loosen them up, if desired. Give the oats a good stir, and they are ready to eat cold (no, you don’t heat them!).

Overnight Banana Coconut Oats have thickened after refrigerating overnight.

See how thick the banana coconut oats have become after being refrigerated overnight? They taste wonderful cold, too… kind of like pudding!

Overnight Banana Coconut Oats have the consistency of pudding after being refrigerated overnight.

The recipe as written below will yield ONE serving, but is easily doubled or tripled to make several more servings. Overnight banana coconut oats can be prepared 2-3 days in advance.  If you enjoy the flavors of coconut and banana, you will enjoy this easy breakfast that will also fill you up!
