This bowl of Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats combines the ideas of healthy breakfast and comfort food.
Nutritious oats and chia seeds ‘cook’ overnight in the fridge together with natural peanut butter, honey, and milk of choice. In the morning, drizzle with more peanut butter, top with chopped peanuts and fresh banana slices.
This bowl of overnight oats is amazing healthy comfort food. I may or may not have eaten it for breakfast for the better part of the last week. Yes, of course I did!
We’ve been in our furnished Thai apartment for a week now, but even though we have all the basic dishes, cutlery and cookware, the fridge and pantry are of course empty.
And with all the amazing and affordable Thai food available, I feel like I have been rather slow with getting everything stocked.
We started with breakfast items. We love Thai food for lunch and dinner, but I am not sure if we are ready for Thai breakfast.
Rice porridge is not quite my thing. And I prefer to have dishes like rice with fried egg and egg noodle soup at other times than first thing in the morning.
So some of the first things we picked up were coffee, cereal, peanut butter, honey and some of the cutest and most flavorful mini bananas.
Probably thanks to the large expat community here in Chiang Mai, I was happily surprised to find chia seeds as well. At twice the cost than I would have paid in Canada – but that’s just the price of Western comforts in Asia.
As I was looking at the ingredients we had just picked up, I saw this recipe emerge in front of my eyes. Hearty oats combined with chia seeds, softened in the fridge overnight, sweetened with honey, flavored with delicious natural peanut butter, more peanuts and banana slices on top.
And because I just can’t get enough of peanut butter, I warmed a little in the microwave to drizzle it over these bowls of goodness as a crowning finish.
After a bowl of this and a good cup of coffee I am ready to tackle the day!
