One of the best fruits to have in the morning is a banana. The potassium-rich fruit helps control those unhealthy mid-morning cravings, as it is a great source of resistant starch. Resistant starch is the kind of carbohydrate you need so that you stay feeling full for a longer period.
The great news is that bananas go very well with overnight oats. And in this recipe, we will show you how.
Feel free to change the ingredients up to your liking. But basically, we are using plant-based milk and yogurt alternatives in this recipe. Particularly, we are using cashew milk and almond yogurt, both unsweetened.
You may mash the bananas, but we prefer them chopped, for a chunkier texture. Besides bananas, we have also used walnuts as additional toppings. To sweeten the mixture a bit, we have used stevia extracts.
