These honey, almond butter, and banana overnight oats have a delicious touch of sweetness with every bite, giving this nutritious breakfast idea a natural energy boost to help us start the day.

As you can see from the video, overnight oats are really easy to make. What I love about this particular recipe is that there is no cooking required, just a quick assembly line of ingredients and the refrigerator (plus time) does the rest.

If you follow this blog, you know that I’m always trying and creating recipes that can become grab-and-go fuel for our busy mornings. What you might not know is that I pack breakfast for my husband daily, which he proceeds to eat at the office a few hours later.

Oats and Honey

He likes to eat these honey overnight oats lightly warmed in the microwave, while I tend to eat them cold.

I’m on a mission to prove that eating healthier as a family doesn’t have to be difficult. You can use fresh, whole ingredients without spending hours in the kitchen or making meals that will spark protest from the kids.

I found that recipes like this were so popular among my readers, I decided to create a 30-day whole eating plan called the Family KickStart Program. It focuses on food your whole family can enjoy together while eliminating sugars and processed food. Check out the Family KickStart Program here.

I also love making healthy breakfasts to fuel my kids for the day. Between school, karate, swim team, gymnastics, theater classes, and everything else my kids are doing, they need a lot of energy to be active kids. During the week, I prefer to feed them nutritious breakfasts like oats, eggs, or fresh fruit and yogurt so they’ll be full until lunchtime or their school snack (banana chips is a current favorite). And this lightly honey-sweetened breakfast does just that!

Sure, you can make oatmeal in the morning and drizzle it with honey, but overnight oats have a thicker and heartier texture that I just love to eat.

This recipe is also one that my kids can help prepare. They can measure the ingredients and pour them into the mason jars. My daughter, who loves honey, always tries to sneak an extra drizzle or two in her jars. Some of my favorite memories happened when my kids were helping me in the kitchen!

    I start my day with honey in my (Cafe du Monde) coffee, and end my night with honey in a mug of warm milk with cardamom, yum!

    We love honey in our homemade Greek yogurt. Recently, I discovered a honey sweetened “caramel” corn. Oh. My.

  3. Belle says:

    Honey is SO versatile! I use it in my coconut bread, in my coffee, and on top of a piece of sprouted grain toast that is smothered in almond butter.

  4. Heather says:

    My favorite way to eat honey is to simply put it on a buttered biscuit. I prefer homemade biscuits with honey. Thank you!

    How delicious! We live to drizzle honey in our Greek yogurt and on our whole wheat toast. We love it!

    I usually use honey in my oatmeal. When I’m making something that requires sugar and I realize that I am out of it I never hesitate to use honey as a substitute to save me the drive to the grocery store for one item. I can’t wait to try your new to me recipe!!

    We have a beehive and love to drizzle honey on lots of things, from toast, to tea, to cheesecake, but my favorite way to use it is in homemade elderberry syrup. Keeps us healthy all year round.

    a cup of tea or popcorn (plus cinnamon)

  12. Rachel says:

    We mainly use honey and syrup for sweetening in our house, so we go through a lot of honey. I buy it from a local farm so it is extra delish! I think my kids fave is probably your oven “fried” bananas recipe! I think hubby enjoys it most drizzled over plain ole’ Os cereal. My favorite honey uses are in homemade granola and homemade graham crackers… but that’s just at this moment. We ♡ it so many ways.

    This looks so good! Can I prep multiple at a time?
