Peanut butter-Banana-Overnight Oatmeal | Vegan

It’s easy to get stuck in routines…. doing the same thing and eating the same thing.

Of course, if something works for you then you don’t necessarily need to change it. I.e, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.

But every now and then a little variation can be a good idea… so if you are someone who loves your oatmeal and eats the same oatmeal over and over, why not change it up a bit. There are so many different ways to eat oats. The way you prepare it, what flavours you add and other extras you add to your oats can all change the texture and taste. I am pretty sure if you were creative enough you could eat a new combo/flavour of oatmeal everyday!

As i mentioned on my Instagram, one of my goals for 2019 was to share more snacks/breakfasts, because well… 90% of my feed is just savoury lunches and dinners. But i do infact eat breakfast and snacks, however they aren’t always so creative or picture worthy.

When you want to eat more plantbased it can be tough to know what to eat for snacks and you may just eat the same thing on repeat, so hopefully my snack ideas will spark some inspiration – and this one is a favourite!

You can see some of my other snacks ideas, HERE. Such as home made granola, pizza rolls, chia pudding tofu scramble, scones etc

You don’t have to make this as overnight oats, you can boil everything together (which is what i did), but i have also made these as overnight oats where i just combine everything and leave in the fridge over night!

For the peanut butter banana overnight oats, you need: (This makes around 2 jars/servings)

1,5 large bananas

c.a 80g oats

1 tbsp chia seeds

1-2 tbsp peanut butter

Around 400-500ml liquid such as oatmilk, coconut milk or water (or 50/50)

Cinnamon & vanilla

Pinch of salt (optional)

How to: 

Chop the banana into slices.

In a pot add the oats, peanut butter, chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla, pinch of salt and your liquid of choice. Also add half of your chopped banana.

Heat on medium heat and stirring every few minutes so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Allow it to thicken – add more liquid if necessary. It takes about 5-10 minutes!

When done top with the rest of the banana and optional walnuts and chocolate pieces!

If you are making overnight oats, just combine everything and pour into 2-3 jars/bowls and allow to thicken overnight!

Oat and banana pancake recipe – vegan!

It’s been a while since i last had pancakes to say the least. Infact i can’t even remember when i last had pancakes – it’s been THAT long! I was eating pancakes on a weekly basis for a while (each Sunday because #pancakesunday haha) but then i just got tired of it.

Usually i just make THESE pancakes which is a very simple, but delicious recipe made with white flour. And i have even tried making cinnamon swirl pancakes HERE & even some chocolate chip pancakes HERE. But today i decided to make some oat and banana pancakes and switch things up a bit!

In the past, i.e before i went vegan, i used to make pancakes which consisted of 1 banana, 2 eggs/egg whites and some oats which always turned out great. But now when i make oat and banana pancakes i just leave out the eggs and add oat milk instead and add some crushed flaxseeds which act as a binding agent (you can use chia seeds instead, or omit completely!).

The recipe is simple and all you need is a hand mixer or other form of mixer, and then just to fry the pancakes!

Also note, the more baking powder you use the more “fluffy” they get… so if you don’t want them fluffy omit the baking powder!

Recipe: 

2 cups of rolled oats which is around 180g i.e c.a 4,5dl oats.

2 bananas (the riper the better!)

1,5 cup oat milk (c.a 300ml)

c.a 3-4 tbs sugar/sweetener (add more or less depending on your preferences)

1tsp baking powder

1tsb cinnamon

C.a 1 tsb flax seed or chia seeds (can omit)

Pinch of salt

Optional: Add berries, chocolate chips or coconut shreds to the mix!

How to:

Begin with turning the rolled oats into flour in a food processor/hand mixer. Once the oats have turned into flour add the chopped banana as well as the baking powder, cinnamon, sugar, flax seeds (if using) & pinch of salt and mix again with the mixer – add the milk as you mix. Keeping adding milk (or water) until you reach a thin – but not water consistency. It should be thick, but not clumpy.

Then begin frying in medium heat! (If you fry in butter or oil it gives a crispy outside, but is fine to fry without a fat source if you are using a non-stick pan.)

Best to make mini pancakes out of this mix – and each pancake needs to be fried 1-2 minutes on each side before done!

Eat and enjoy, or save for later!

This recipe is so simple and works just as well to just use c.a 1-2 portions of oatmeal, 1 banana and some oatmilk which you mix together and fry into pancakes. I.e turn your regular oatmeal into some pancakes instead and make a single serving pancake breakfast!
