These banana chia overnight oat and yogurt parfaits are the perfect healthy and nutritious breakfast. In under 10 minutes, you can prep breakfast for the week. These parfaits feature oats and nutritious chia seeds soaked with milk and sweetened with coconut sugar. The oats are layered with protein-packed Greek yogurt, notes of cinnamon, and topped with sliced banana. You can also add chocolate chips for some extra sweetness and crunch. As the parfait sits in the fridge, the flavors combine; the oats soak up the milk and other liquids and “cook” without cooking. When all mixed together, these ingredients form the most delicious and satisfying breakfast. You can make different varieties of these oats depending on what you have on hand, too. If you are looking for a no-fuss breakfast prep with no heating required, this is it.
