Three glass jars of banana overnight oats topped with berries

Banana Overnight Oats

These Banana Overnight Oats are my go-to Basic Overnight Oats Recipe. Naturally sweetened with banana, and gut-friendly with yoghurt and a long soak to ferment the oats, make-ahead breakfast is creamy, dreamy, and packed with good nutrition.
