Banana Bread Overnight Oatmeal

Gluten Free Living – 2021

How about this everyone, Banana Bread in oatmeal form. Yes, yes, yes! I loved this tasty and delicious Banana Bread Overnight Oatmeal recipe. I started with steel-cut oats, also called pin oats or Irish oats. When slow cooked in the crockpot, they turn out very soft and creamy. I’ve tried cooking them on the stove before but they turned out tough and chewy. Ugh. But cooked overnight in the crockpot, the oats turn out wonderfully.

Back in June we traveled to Pennsylvania to see my kids and grandkids. We also visited with my daughter-in-law’s parents. We got talking about making oatmeal to reduce cholesterol. My daughter-in-law loves making hers with bananas, but her mother liked adding nuts and dates to the batch as well. So that’s what I did. I made this amazing oatmeal with bananas, walnuts, dates and cinnamon. It was very well flavored and additional sugar was not necessary. So this recipe is sugar free as well as gluten free and vegan.

The one thing you’ll need is a programmable crockpot. This recipe is done in 5 hours on low, and that was using my slowest crockpot. Be careful not to overcook this recipe or the oats will stick to the sides of the crockpot and dry out. You can also make it during the day and then pack the oatmeal up in containers for the refrigerator or freezer, depending on your need and preference. I’ve done both.

While you can top each serving with additional bananas and walnuts (like I did in the pictures), you really don’t need any more. And, truthfully, I really don’t think you need to add brown sugar or maple syrup, since it really is pretty sweet already especially if you use ripe bananas.

Banana Bread Overnight Oatmeal is a fantastic breakfast option for company and holiday breakfasts. It’s so easy to toss everything in the crockpot and wake up to a batch of scrumptious smelling oatmeal in the morning. Plus, this recipe makes 12 servings so it’s terrific for serving a crowd. If you enjoy Banana Bread you get a little dose with this breakfast entree. So, so good. 🙂

Add sliced bananas and oat milk. I get the Oat Milk at Walmart, but you have to get it early in the day before they sell out!

Instructions

  4. Serve garnished with fresh sliced bananas and a sprinkle of chopped walnuts, if desired.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: You can portion out the servings into microwavable glass or plastic containers. Refrigerate for up to one week and microwave before serving.

NOTE: You can also freeze the cooked oatmeal in the same type of containers. Remove from freezer and allow to defrost in refrigerator a day or so before using and microwaving as noted above.

NOTE: This recipe has no added sugar. The dates and bananas sweetened the oatmeal enough it does not require additional sugar.

NOTE: Overnight oatmeal is something of a misnomer. This recipe was done in about 5 hours in my slowest crockpot.

NOTE: The key to this recipe is not overcooking the oatmeal so it sticks onto the sides of the crockpot. Five to six hours is really all you need.

NOTE: This recipe is easiest if you have a slow cooker with a programmable timer. Set the end time for when you want to serve breakfast.

NOTE: Oat Milk can be purchased at Walmart and other grocery stores. You will have to go early to Walmart to purchase it because they sell out very quickly.

NOTE: This is NOT a very sweet oatmeal on it's own. You will need to add fresh, sliced banana on top of each serving to make the oatmeal sweet enough without sugar. If you don't need a sugar-free recipe, I recommend adding 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed) when cooking the oatmeal in the crockpot. That will provide plenty of sweetness for each serving.
