betty bakes: banoffee overnight oats with ice cream

We know the rule: you should always eat a hearty breakfast to kick-start your day. But unless you really love cooking or find yourself in a fancy hotel with a magical toaster that provides unlimited avo toast (dreamy), it’s hard to muster up the energy to make something really delicious. Especially on a lazy Sunday.

*Food klaxon* This is why we love overnight oats. Not only do they take five minutes to make as you prep them the night before, but this tasty, oaty recipe actually comes complete with a decadent dollop of ice cream. Wait, WHAT? Yes, you heard us right. We are shaking up the brunch world once again with something naughty, because incase you hadn’t heard… oats + ice cream = breakfast of champions.

Just don’t tell your ‘rents we keep doing this or you’ll be on diet of dry muesli before you can say ‘sultana’.

Ingredients

For the overnight oats (enough for 4 mornings):

150 g rolled oats
420 ml almond milk
60 ml apple juice
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the cinnamon ‘nice cream’:

2 bananas, peeled and frozen
1 tsp vanilla extract
1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 medjool date
a pinch of salt

Recipe

1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and then leave to soak overnight in the fridge.

2. The next day, if the mix looks a little dry add more almond milk. Then scoop into a small jar or bowl.

3. Now for the cinnamon nice cream! Just pop the bananas, vanilla extract, cinnamon, date and salt in a food processor and blend until thick and creamy, scraping down the sides every 30 seconds.

4. Whizz until the mix becomes completely smooth, like a Mr. Whippy.

5. Scoop the nice cream on top of the oats and add a tasty toppings (we love caramelised bananas, crumbled nuts and coconut flakes).
