Wonderful as a post-workout meal or breakfast, these High Protein Banana Bread Overnight Oats will have you look forward to getting up in the morning!

I think it will come as no surprise to you if I tell you that I’ve been loving on overnight oats quite a lot these past couple of months. Since I tend to have them almost every day as a post workout meal, I like to boost their protein content a little bit by throwing in a healthy scoop of whey protein powder.

Adding protein powder to it makes my morning cereal so much creamier, and tastier, too! And I really like to use the unflavored variety for that purpose because it doesn’t add any unnecessary flavor or sweetness. Trust me, the banana and dates here add plenty of that as it is…

To make these overnight oats, you ideally want to get started the previous night, as the name implies. Combine your dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl and set aside.

Then, in a small food processor or blender, combine all the wet ingredient and process until smooth.

Can you get a sense of how thick and creamy that stuff is as we pour it over the dry ingredients? You could almost stick a straw in that container and drink it straight from the jar. Forget all about the overnight oats…

But be good, pour it all in… You can make yourself a shake after if you want to!

Mix well with a spoon until all the ingredients are well combined.

Yeah, as you can see, that was a very tight fit for me. You’re allowed using a bigger bowl, you know. You don’t have to do everything exactly like I do! 😉

Good thing the cereal tends to shrink as all the liquid gets absorbed…

Cover that bowl and let it sit in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours, but preferably overnight, before serving.

When ready to serve, add a little bit more milk, if desired, and garnish with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a few banana chips.

Oh, you could also go wild and drizzle all that with a little bit of pure maple syrup, if you wanted to…
