The banana flavor comes through perfectly in these banana overnight oats. Pecan butter has a delicate flavor that complements the flavors nicely, but you can also easily swap it out for any nut butter., July 2022

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place 1 banana in a large bowl; mash with a fork until smooth. Add milk, oats, 1/4 cup pecan (or almond) butter, yogurt, chia seeds, honey and salt; stir to combine. Divide the mixture among 4 bowls or half-pint jars. Cover and refrigerate until the mixture is thickened and the oats are tender, at least 8 hours or up to 3 days.

  • Slice the remaining banana. Top the oats evenly with the sliced banana and the remaining 1/4 cup pecan (or almond) butter. Garnish with raspberries, if desired.

To make ahead

Prepare oats (Step 1) and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Garnish just before serving.


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.
