Cinnamon Banana Overnight Oats with a Blueberry Cashew Cream Topping

Yields 2 servings 

Ingredients:

Overnight Oats: 

1 banana, mashed

1 cup oats 

1/2 cup milk or plant milk (unsweetened)

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp ground flaxseeds

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp maple syrup

Topping:

1 frozen banana

1 cup blueberries

2 pitted dates

1/4 cup cashews soaked for 2 hours and drained

1/4 - 1/2 cup milk or plant milk (unsweetened)

Instructions

  1. Add the overnight oats ingredients together in a bowl and stir until combined.  Portion out into two jars or cups and set aside. 
  2. Blend the topping ingredients until well combined and pour half of the mix onto each of the overnight oats.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.  I ate some right after making it and it was pretty good then too.  Depends on how soft you prefer your oats.  
  3. Top with fresh fruit and enjoy!
