Choc Chip Banana Overnight Oats (Easy Weight-loss Meal Prep)

Choc Chip Banana Overnight Oats (Easy Weight-loss Meal Prep)


This is a weight-loss breakfast that doesn’t feel like a weight-loss breakfast, and it’s one of the easiest things to meal prep. You can meal prep enough for the whole week; it’s not really more work to prep multiple servings.

It’s balanced with all the food groups (carbs, fats, protein, fiber), it’s only about 400 calories (which is a good amount of calories for a weight loss breakfast), and it’s really yummy!

BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP OVERNIGHT OATS  – serves 3, roughly 400 cal per serving


  • 3 medium ripe bananas (smashed)
  • 1 + 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 + 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips (I use Lilly’s)
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
  • Optional: extra chocolate chips for topping 

How to prep:

  • Smash the 3 bananas with a fork and add to a mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients 
  • Mix all the ingredients together
  • Serve the overnight oat batter between 3 x 12 oz jars to make 3 portions 
  • Optionally sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top of the oats
  • Cover the jars with airtight lids and store them in the fridge 

How to eat:

  • I like to eat these overnight oats with a spoon straight from the jar!

See how easy it is to make these overnight oats in my weight-loss meal prep video (below). In the video, I’ll also show you how easy it is to incorporate this breakfast into a weekly weight-loss meal plan!
