Banana Pineapple Overnight Oats

Morning bowl of  Overnight oats

Today is one of those days that has felt long for me.  Which is a rare occurrence!  I am thoroughly enjoying it as I am used to running around and before I know it the day is done.  Dinner tonight is Pupusas!  I was craving something different, but wanted to work with what I had at home so I turned to my handy Lonely Planet “The World’s Best Street Food”  for inspiration!  Salvadoran cuisine it is tonight!  I am missing a few ingredients so hope to blog this another time.  I am sure my family will be happy to have freshly made Pupusas which will be stuffed with meat and cheese and served with salsa and Curtido!  I know I am looking forward to it!

Banana Pineapple Overnight Oats

I am still enjoying my oats whether it is in cookies, granola or in this case soaked overnight in Almond milk and Greek yogurt, tossed up with some of my favourite ingredients!  So easy, healthy and delicious!  I have been experimenting with different combinations and they all work well!  This has been my favourite so far!  Cinnamon and Vanilla is another flavour that can be used with apples if Pineapple isn’t your thing?

Oats all mixed up

I eat this for dessert and crave it first thing in the morning!  It is so delicious and hearty in the mornings and keeps you going all day long!  If you want a vegan version, leave out the Greek Yogurt and just use Almond milk. It’s up to you and this recipe is extremely accommodating with any substitutions.

A perfect dish for brunch and best of all, it is meant to be soggy!  So it lasts in your fridge for a couple of days.  I am crazy about it!  Top it off with some crunchy granola, seeds, nuts and some more fruit or berries if you want?  I have even seen parfait versions where, leftover cake or muffins are added! Sundae breakfast 😉  Enjoy this guilt free brekky!
