Banana Bread Oats 21 Day Fix

Banana Bread Overnight Oats

These Banana Bread Overnight Oats are my latest breakfast obsession! I am pretty routine when it comes to breakfast – I love my eggs and oatmeal, but I needed something to change it up a little bit and WOW! These hit the spot! They are sweet, filling and have SO much flavor – truly a delicious way to start my day!

I usually prep 3 of these for the week on Sunday – they stay good for about 3 days, so that makes this super meal-prep friendly!  These are my current go-to and I HIGHLY recommend you give them a try! I am currently doing the Master’s Hammer and Chisel program and this fits right in with my meal plan – along with the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme – try it and let me know what you think!

  1. Is their a substitute for chai seeds in this recipe?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      You can omit them or use any kind of seed. I add them to help with getting my orange container in – you could use pecan pieces. 🙂

  2. Theresa

    Can I opt out the yogurt? I don’t eat any dairy.
    Thank you

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      You CAN – but it will completely change the recipe, the yogurt thickens them up. HMM Are there non-dairy yogurt options?

      1. Katelyn

        What kind of yogurt did you use? Nonfat or lowfat?

        1. Angela Dimitrelias

          Fage brand 0% 🙂

  3. Amber

    Is the oatmeal cooked? Or raw?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Uncooked! 🙂

  4. Mary

    Is there a way to ripen bananas? I’m buying groceries on Sunday and well there are no ripe bananas so I would have to wait till mid week to make this but I really want to prep on Sunday. Any suggestions?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Hi Mary – YES! If you put the bananas in a brown paper bag with an apple or 2, that will help them ripen faster. I hope that helps! (sorry for the late response, this message hit my spam folder for some reason!)

  5. Lisa

    Hi, just wondering if this would work with steel cut oats. Would it be the same ratio of oats if so? Thanks so much!

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Yes – I believe the ratio is the same.

  6. Ashley

    I thought pecans were blue?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      They are – but pecan pieces are Orange. 🙂

  7. Andrea

    Do you heat it up with n the morning? Or eat it cold? Also instead of chia seeds you suggested pecan pieces, are walnuts or almond slivers ok? Is that a direct substitute? Meaning 2 tsp of the nuts?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      I eat it cold. Yes – any kind of chopped raw nuts would be fine – I would do 1 T of those. 🙂

  8. Jeni

    Can u sub the almond milk with water?? I’m doing 21 df and was under the impression it’s a treat swap. Am I wrong??

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      4 oz of unsweetened almond milk is FREE! 🙂

  9. Amy

    So good! I don’t eat much yogurt on the fix because I need flavored yogurt or a lot of sweetner. But the 1 teaspoon was actually enough since the mashed banana helped sweetened the whole thing. Thanks for the recipe!

  10. Barbara

    This was amazing. Thank you

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      You are so very welcome! <3

  11. Monica

    Will it make a difference as far as taste if I omit the maple syrup?

  12. Anna crowe

    Will ground Chia seeds work for this? And can I use honey instead of syrup?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Yes to both. 🙂

  13. Jessica

    Love this recipe! Thank you! I used it for every cycle I did with 21 day fix, and now that I’m pregnant, it’s a perfect fiber-rich breakfast to keep my tummy happy. 😍

  14. Amanda

    I made these last night – I omitted the chia and used steel cut oats and 1% milk, also added a tbsp of all natural PB but all the same measurements – it’s very runny… is it suppose to be? Haven’t tasted it yet!

  15. Angelica

    Just made a batch. Can’t wait to see how it turns out. I substituted the Maple Syrup for Agave.

  16. Michelle

    YUM! I just started 21DF 2 days ago. This is by far my favorite new snack. I use it in the afternoon, around 3:00. It’s filling and sweet and carries me through to dinner time. Thanks!
