Banana Coconut Overnight Oatmeal

I was belatedly inspired by Tastespotting`s Month of Oatmeal. This oatmeal recipe is based on one of the commenter's recipes and boy, is it ever good! I'm not sure if I could eat oatmeal every day for a month, but this particular oatmeal makes that proposition more appetizing. This particular oatmeal, leaving out the molasses, is perfectly suitable for all munchkins over 8 months.

Would you be able to eat oatmeal every day for a month? 

Banana Coconut Overnight Oatmeal

- 1 large banana
- 3/4 cup plain yogurt (maybe homemade!)
1 cup rolled oats
- 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- molasses, optional, to taste

Mash the banana well with a fork in a bowl large enough to contain all the ingredients. Stir in the yogurt, oats, coconut, and cinnamon until well combined. Cover and store in the refrigerator overnight. 

In the morning, give the oatmeal a stir. Heat briefly if desired and top with a drizzle of molasses, if desired.

* Makes one adult serving, or two toddler sized servings


  1. I think I could eat oatmeal every day in the winter months at least. This recipe sounds good, especially the coconut banana combination.

    Oh, and I really like your new page design.

    (FYI the link to tastespotting seems to be broken)

  2. Not only is it good, it takes only a couple minutes of effort, no simmering. I'm glad you like the new design!

  3. Oh, and thanks for letting me know about the's fixed now

  4. those would definitely be my reason to get up in the morning!

    Thanks for letting me know about the black bean and barley burritos! I hope your family enjoyed them!

  5. I am pretty sure I have eaten oatmeal everyday for a month before. I tend to get in breakfast ruts sometimes. I just can't get myself to try the overnight oats. Something about cold oatmeal kind of grosses me out. Everyone seems to rave about it though, so maybe one day.
