Overnight oats are a fantastic breakfast option for a healthy diet and weight loss. They are easy to make, delicious, and can be packed with all kinds of healthy ingredients. In this recipe, we're going to add some bananas and chia seeds to the mix to create a breakfast that is both tasty and nutritious.
Bananas are an excellent source of dietary fibre, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. They also contain potassium, which can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease. Chia seeds, on the other hand, are loaded with antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and fibre. They can also help regulate blood sugar levels and reduce inflammation.
Now, let's get into the recipe!
