An overnight delight. It’s hard to get tired of it because it can vary in many ways. In the evening, we layer it into our little glass, and in the morning, all we have to do is enjoy it.
Oats, Coffee, and Banana for Breakfast
Why should you try a breakfast like that? Well, I’ll give you some reasons:
Bananas are a good source of
- essential vitamins
- and minerals like potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6,
- and dietary fiber.
Oats are rich in
- complex carbohydrates,
- and various vitamins and minerals.
Coffee, in moderation, provides antioxidants and can give you a morning boost.
Combining complex carbohydrates from oats and natural sugars from bananas provides a steady release of energy throughout the morning. It can help you feel more satiated and focused, preventing energy crashes.
Oats and bananas both contain dietary fiber, which promotes healthy digestion and can help prevent constipation. A healthy digestive system contributes to overall well-being.
The potassium in bananas benefits heart health, as it helps regulate blood pressure. Oats, however, can contribute to heart health by helping manage cholesterol levels.
Due to its caffeine content, coffee can enhance mental alertness and focus. It can give you the cognitive boost needed to kickstart your day.
Oats and bananas are relatively low in calories and fiber, making them a satisfying breakfast option that may support weight management by promoting feelings of fullness.
Combining these ingredients offers a wide range of breakfast possibilities. You can get creative with your breakfast choices, from overnight oats and oatmeal topped with sliced bananas to coffee-infused smoothies or oat-based banana pancakes.
How to make overnight oats?
Now you can master my recipe – it won’t take more than 5 minutes (and a night), though.
- 70g rolled oats
- 1 dl milk
- 100g Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp honey [optional]
- 1 tsp ground coffee
- half a banana
- 1 tsp chia seeds
Pour the rolled oats and milk into the bottom of the glass, then add the yogurt mixed with cocoa and coffee. Place the diced banana on the cream, and sprinkle with chia seeds and roughly chopped walnuts. Let it rest in the refrigerator overnight, and enjoy it in the morning.
It’s essential to have a well-rounded breakfast that consists of different nutrients such as proteins, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals – that’s why I created this recipe.
