Ingredients

  • 1 small ripe banana,
  • 1 heaped tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon runny honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 100g rolled porridge oats
  • 150ml milk
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Optional toppings

  • peanut butter
  • sliced banana
  • Greek yogurt
  • fresh berries or sliced fruit
  • desiccated coconut,

Directions

  1. The night before serving, mash the banana in the base of a bowl and stir in the peanut butter, honey or syrup, and cocoa powder.
  2. Add the milk and whisk well before tipping in the oats and giving one final stir, covering, and setting in the fridge overnight.
  3. In the morning, the oats should have soaked up all the liquid and will be ready to eat with your choice of toppings.
  4. If you prefer a looser consistency, add a splash more milk; if you prefer a warm breakfast, heat the oats in a pan or microwave in short bursts until warm.

Tip: Leftover oats can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days or frozen for up to three months.
