Overnight oats are a great alternative to oatmeal if you have less time in the mornings as you prepare them the night before. This allows you to simply grab them in the morning and add some extra fruit or nuts or increase the sweetness by drizzling with natural honey. You still reap the same benefits from the oatmeal with the only difference being that overnight Oats are fluffier, thicker and served cold. Oats are a wholesome and nutritious grain that should be included in your daily diet as they are packed with fibre and protein which are hugely beneficial for your digestive system and increasing energy levels. Bananas are full of potassium and help to fill up your belly in the morning and works well with the flavour of the greek yogurt.

The great thing about this recipe is that it is so simple and you can mix up the flavours creating a new taste every day by choosing different toppings and fruits as you go. As well as choosing gluten free oats, you can also keep the recipe dairy free by choosing a non-dairy milk of your choice.
