This easy banana overnight oats recipe tastes like bananas foster! Full of flavor and alcohol-free it is the most epic way to start your day. 


  • 1 teaspoon butter or  coconut oil
  • 3 very ripe bananas, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground flax
  • 3 cups milk*


  1. In a small saucepan, heat up butter or coconut oil over medium heat. Add the bananas, vanilla, and cinnamon to the heated pan and begin to sauté until they begin to break down and juice out their natural sugars – about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the maple syrup, stir to combine, and cook for another minute, remove from heat.
  3. Inside each jar, place ½ cup oats, ½ teaspoon ground flax, and ¾ cup milk. Divide the cooked bananas evenly over each glass jar
  4. Stir to combine, place the lid on, and refrigerate overnight. 





  • You can use butter instead of coconut oil and your favorite dairy-free milk as well.
  • You can eat your oats cold right out of the fridge or warmed in the microwave.
