Banana Overnight Oats

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.

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, divided

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk or other nondairy milk

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (see Tip)

  • ½ cup creamy pecan butter or almond butter, divided

  • ¼ cup plain whole-milk strained yogurt, such as Greek-style

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • Fresh raspberries for garnish


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
