Sesame Banana Overnight Oats

In case you didn’t already know – I’m a huge fan of overnight oats. They’re healthy, filling, and simple to make... yet tastes like sweet dessert!


If you’re still not convinced, this Sesame Banana Overnight Oats recipe’s about to turn you into an overnight oats convert. It’s loaded with bananas and full of potassium, lean protein, zinc, and fibre. AND tahini, because... have you not caught on to my obsession? Who said healthy eating had to be boring? Or difficult?!



Because they're so quick and easy to cook, overnight oats are one of my favorite breakfasts! I can literally pour everything into a mason jar, cover it with a lid, and wake up to a ready-to-eat breakfast. They're my best friend during hectic mornings.


Overnight oats are also a great quick and easy meal to prepare ahead of time. You can prepare a few jars over the weekend and have breakfast ready for the week ahead. It's as simple as taking a ready-made jar from the fridge and topping it with your favorite toppings in the morning.


Bananas are an overnight oats topping staple for me. They always taste delicious and they're great energy boosters in the morning, not to mention packed with fiber! The fruit itself is loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. And consuming bananas in any form can offer a host of health benefits.


Bananas are so beneficial to your health that doctors recommend eating one banana every day for good health. They also contain very little sugar, which makes them an ideal snack for people with diabetes or who are on a diet. They're also rich in tryptophan, which is an amino acid that helps your body produce serotonin- a chemical that contributes to feelings of calmness and happiness! Happiness in a bite... literally.


This Sesame Banana Overnight Oats recipe is one of my favorites so far and it's a great way to use up all those overripe bananas sitting on your counter.
