Dessert Overnight Oats: Banoffee Pie Edition

Banoffee Overnight Oats

What are overnight oats?

Overnight oats are a chilled version of porridge/ oatmeal. Instead of cooking rolled oats on the stovetop or in the microwave, you soak oats in a liquid of your choice overnight in the fridge. This softens the rolled oats, which forms a lovely creamy texture.

Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast to meal-prep the night before. They only take a few minutes to compile, and then you have a healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning!

Ingredients in Banoffee Overnight Oats

You just need a few simple ingredients to make these banoffee overnight oats, most of which you should already have in your pantry!

Banoffee Overnight Oats

BANANA– I’d recommend using a medium-ripe banana for this recipe. You want it to be ripe enough to be sweet, but not too ripe that it won’t hold its form when sliced.

ROLLED OATS– If you prefer a smooth consistency to your banoffee overnight oats, use quick oats. If you want a bit more texture, use whole rolled oats (this is my preference).

MAPLE SYRUP I use maple syrup to make these overnight oats naturally sweetened. However, you can substitute this for your sweetener of choice. You can also increase or decrease the amount of sweetener you use depending on preference.

NON-DAIRY MILK- Use whatever non-dairy milk you would like for the overnight oats. I use oat milk here as I find it has the most neutral and creamiest taste.

PECAN BUTTER– I use Koro Pecan Butter as it is my current nut butter obsession and works so well in the caramel layer (use the code POLKADOT for a discount at check out). You can substitute for almond butter or cashew butter.

YOGURT– You can use greek yogurt or thick non-dairy yogurt here. I personally like coconut yogurt.

DARK CHOCOLATE– Shavings of dark chocolate are the perfect way to top off these banoffee overnight oats. If you don’t have any chocolate, you can sub this for cocoa powder.

How to make Banoffee Overnight Oats

4. Once overnight oats are set, divide mixture into two glasses or jars. Top with a layer of vanilla cream, caramel and banana coins. Finish with chocolate shavings or a dusting of cocoa.

How long can I store overnight oats?

You can store the overnight oats on their own in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight container. However, once you’ve compiled the banoffee oats with the other layers you should consume them within a few hours.
