Banana & Coco Overnight Oats

Published August 4, 2013 by Tasha

So this little recipe is for all the Oats lovers out there, the people that love porridge so much that they want it in Summer as well.
This recipe does have its own unique taste & does require some tweaking to your likes. I accidentally put too much coco powder in the first time … Did not even up well!
Once you get the balance to how you like it right they are awesome heated up or just from the fridge. I usually have mine on the go as I’m running out the door in the mornings.

There are many more flavours, but this one is the most loved. If this recipe is a hit I will post some more OOs for all of you
