Banana Chocolate Overnight Oats for Busy School Mornings
Overnight oats are amazing. Where has this breakfast been all of my life? My son has always been the oatmeal lover but trying to make a bowl during busy school mornings can be difficult, especially when it takes that extra 10 minutes to
pull yank gently and lovingly coax him out of bed. So this Easy Banana Chocolate Overnight Oats Recipe is the perfect solution for busy school mornings. Made with your child the night before, packed with school-fuel and full of kid-friendly flavors, those few extra minutes in the morning can make the difference for a GREAT day of learning and keeping the morning monster at bay!
I love my son dearly. But waking this kid up in the morning is one of the hardest mom jobs in the world. I have been punched. I have been kicked. I have been yelled at. It’s amazing how my sweet 7-year old boy can turn into the ugly morning monster. So breakfast normally consists of me pleading a tired and angry boy to take bites of a banana and cereal before running to the bus. Not cool, especially when he has so much learning to do, creativity to foster and fun memories to make!
So I turn to overnight oats, the perfect breakfast solution for busy school days. But making a delicious breakfast that also contains all of that brain food my son needs for first grade can be a challenge. What’s my secret to the sweet success? Nesquik! This energy packed lowfat chocolate milk is full of 7 essential vitamins and minerals, contains no artificial colors or flavors and has 45% less sugar than other chocolate syrups.

I can place out all of the ingredients for his school breakfast the night before and let him do the work.
