Easy & healthy Overnight Oats Recipe

Overnight oats is a very healthy, nutritious, delicious and very easy to prepare recipe where oats, milk, banana, chia seeds, nuts and also any other desired fruits and give it a nice stir.

This recipe is a no cook oats recipes. Oats are soaked for minimum of 4-5 hrs in milk instead of boiling with milk on stove or microwaving . I have used Quaker rolled oats and 2% milk for this recipe. But you can also use steel cut oats and/or with whole milk.

Today I am sharing you overnight oats where oats are combined with mashed banana and overloaded with dates, cashew, walnuts, apricot and chia seeds. Adding in chia seeds to the overnight oats thickens and gives a nice creamy texture and feels filling for longer time.
