Banoffee overnight oats? Oh I know, we’re terrible, but it’s been that long since we did an overnight oats and I woke this morning just itching for a breakfast that’ll stick to the roof off my mouth and take eight weeks to pass through me. I shook Paul awake [joke redacted here involving a famous case from the 90s] and sent him to the shops to buy all the bits we needed.
Well, I couldn’t very well go myself, could I? Have you seen it out there? I can’t claim that we’re snowed in or anything dramatic, but rather we’re just awash with shite winter weather. You know the sort – the snow is icy rather than powdering so making a snowman is out of the question unless you’re wearing chain mail gloves, every conceivable surface is covered in ice just waiting to send you crashing to the floor with a fat-man-oof and the roads, oh god the roads, are full of either people driving at 2 miles an hour like they’ve got a burning chip pan in their laps or sprinting along at 90mph and wondering why you haven’t moved out of fourth gear on a 20mph limit. I just can’t be done with it.
What I can be done with however is efficiency, and that’s why today I’m treating you and going straight to the banoffee overnight oats recipe! No flim-flam. Remember to share us around!
to make banoffee overnight oats, you’ll need:
- 40g of oats – any you like, we use Quaker oats because we’re just fancy-dan
- one big banana – don’t be shy, get one that’ll make your eyes water
- 4 Werthers Original sugar free sweeties (they’re only half a syn each by the way, so a good sucky-sweet) (2 syns)
- a toffee yoghurt – any you like, but make sure they’re syn-free – Muller toffee yoghurt is certainly syn free)
- lighter squirty cream (12.5g) (look, I just put a good squirt in there, I don’t care) (1.5 syns)
You can make these in any old container, you know, you don’t need a fancy glass. Just remember to mix things!
to make banoffee overnight oats, you should:
- if you don’t know this by now, you will never never never know this (sorry, and mind I can’t stand Mick Hucknall, he looks like a unwashed chode emerging from a sea of ginger pubes)
- cut your banana into thirds, and then mash two thirds up*
- put a spoonful of mashed banana at the bottom of your glass
- then, mix your oats with the toffee yoghurt and a spoonful of mashed banana and put in the first layer
- smash up your werthers and sprinkle most of them in as the next layer
- add the second layer of oats and yoghurt
- slice up the remaining banana and dot it around the top
- when you come to eat it the next day, top it with the squirty cream and the remainder of the smashed up sweets – yum!
OMG YOU SHUD SYN THE BANDANAS IF UR MASHING THEM
Yes, technically, you ought to syn the banana if you’re mashing it with your fork. Don’t you know mashing RELEASES THE SHERGARS? Pfft. Listen, you’re eating the same amount of banana whether you poke it in your ear, mash it with a fork or stick it up your arse. We’ve been through this. To take it to the most ludicrous conclusion, you could always put the banana in your mouth, mash it with your teeth and then spit it out again. Or just be a bloody normal person and understand that mashing a banana with your fork isn’t going to make an ha’peth of difference to your weight loss.
Though exercise caution with your banana because remember:
