Overnight Oats

Just like cheese and wine, chocolate and banana were made for each other. This is a great way to use up bananas that are going black. As they overripen, they become softer and sweeter, both great things for the overall taste of this brekkie.











Serves 1


(quick to make but needs 8 hours’ soaking time)


250ml almond milk

2 scoops (60g) vanilla protein powder

1 ripe banana, roughly chopped

½ tbsp cocoa powder (over 70% cocoa)

75g rolled oats

a little grated dark chocolate, to serve


Place all the ingredients apart from the rolled oats and dark chocolate in a blender and blitz until smooth.

Pour the mixture over the oats and stir well. Leave to soak in a sealable container in the fridge for at least 8 hours, or overnight.

When you’re ready to eat, sprinkle the dark chocolate over the top.

These are a great little snack to eat with a cup of tea. I mean, who doesn’t love a muffin? They’ll take 40 minutes to make so why not invite some friends over and enjoy them together?
