Chocolate-hazelnut spread adds a touch of luxury to your humble bowl of overnight oatmeal. Banana slices pair perfectly with the spread and add natural sweetness (no need for additional sugar). A sprinkle of flaky salt helps keep this quick breakfast from being cloyingly sweet.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine oats, water and salt in a jar or bowl and stir. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  • In the morning, heat the oats, if desired, or eat cold. Top with banana, chocolate-hazelnut spread and sea salt.


Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
