Banana Cream Pie Overnight Oats

This easy make-ahead breakfast stars potassium-packed banana for sweetness, fiber-filled oats, cottage cheese for satiating protein and bone-strengthening calcium, and chia seeds to make it gel.


1 ripe banana, peeled
1/2 c. low-fat cottage cheese (preferably whipped)
1/4 c. unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/4 c. old-fashioned oats
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
OPTIONAL TOPPERS: Sliced bananas, toasted walnuts, shredded unsweetened coconut, and/or ground cinnamon


  1. Place banana in a small bowl and microwave until softened, about 30 seconds. Add cottage cheese and mash until well combined.
  2. Add milk, oats, chia, and vanilla. Stir well, then cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight. Top as desired.
