Banana Cashew Overnight Oats

This Creamy Banana Cashew Overnight Oatmeal Offers 15 Grams of Protein

Not a fan of sugar in your oatmeal? Not at all into chalky-tasting protein powder? Then you'll love this low-sugar, high-protein overnight oatmeal recipe that's oh so creamy and naturally sweet. The secret? Mashed chickpeas and banana.

OK, I get it. Chickpeas sound a little weird for breakfast. But they have such a satisfying smooth texture when mashed, and since they're virtually flavorless, they blend in with the oatmeal so well — you can't taste them at all.

Offering a whopping 15 grams of protein and almost 11 grams of fiber, this breakfast is perfect if you're trying to lose weight — it'll keep you full and energized for hours. And the best part is that it only takes five minutes the night before to throw together.
