I tried my first overnight oats 5 years ago, when the blogosphere BLEW UP with recipes from all of the bloggers. Since then, I’ve shared multiple recipes for this breakfast staple: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Overnight Oats, Carrot Cake Overnight Oats, and Gingerbread Overnight Oats.
The version I share today is different from all the rest, in that includes FRUIT! Over the years, you may recall my love-hate relationship with fruit, my struggle to get all my fruit servings in daily, and my tendency to eat fruit as a standalone and not use it that much as an ingredient.
Well, today, I stepped outside of my comfort zone, and I loved these oats!!!
I loved these oats. They remind me of banana bread, and you don’t have to guard yourself from eating the whole loaf! This batch of oats is a single-serving recipe, so you can definitely enjoy the whole thing!
