Breakfast that looks like dessert is always more fun to eat! It is nearly as delicious as a real banana split.
Start with basic overnight oats – equal parts milk, Greek yogurt and Quaker Old Fashioned Oats plus a pinch of salt and a little cinnamon if you wish. I used 1/3 a cup of each.
Allow to sit in the fridge overnight so the oats can thicken and absorb the liquid
In the morning, split a ripe banana and make your “chocolate sauce” with some chocolately sunflower or peanut butter (see recipe below). Or you can just use regular peanut butter!
Start with a tablespoon and add milk and little at a time until it’s smooth and drizzly.
Then start your assembly! I used Quaker Real Medleys Dark Chocolate Cranberry with Almond Granola for my “sprinkles.” It’s on the crunchy side of the granola spectrum, so it made the perfect sundae topping.
Overnight Oats Banana Split
- 1/3 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup milk of your choice
- Pinch salt
- Sprinkle of cinnamon
- For the chocolate sauce
- 1 tbsp chocolate nut or seed butter
- A few tbsp milk - enough to thin out the butter
- For the Banana Split
- 1 ripe banana
- Overnight oats
- 1 heaping tbsp Quaker Real Medleys granola
- Drizzle of chocolate sauce
- 3 fresh cherries
- Prepare overnight oats by combining ingredients in a jar or bowl and allowing to sit overnight.
- In the morning, assemble banana split by pouring overnight oats onto banana, and adding granola, chocolate sauce and cherries.
