I’m a big believer that healthy eating can be delicious, appealing, and fun. To prove my point, I’m sharing one of my favorite breakfast recipes, Healthy Banana Split.


Are overnight oats healthy?

Yes, overnight oats are high in fiber and protein. They also contain numerous vitamins and minerals.

Can I use a bowl of overnight oats?

Yes, any container will work for overnight oats. Just cover it with either a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate.

How do you keep bananas from browning?

Rub lemon juice on bananas to slow the browning process. After rubbing lemon juice on them wrap the bananas in plastic wrap or put in an airtight container and refrigerate.

How can I cut calories in overnight oats?

Consider using non-diary milk or water to reduce the calories. Try unsweetened almond milk for example. You can also use powdered peanut butter. Use low sugar protein powder

Can I add protein to overnight oats?

Yes, adding protein powder is a great way to get more protein as well as add flavor to overnight oats. If you’re concerned with calories choose a low sugar protein. You may need to add more milk or water when adding protein.

Banana Split Breakfast Buffet

A banana split bar is breakfast perfection. A breakfast banana split can be eaten hot or at room temperature which makes it ideal for a breakfast bar.

You can make a large batch of overnight oats or make them the traditional way. Keep them warm in a slow cooker.

Banana split boats make a pretty presentation but don’t fret if you don’t have any boats. Instead, set out bowls and cups for your guests to use.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Servings: 2 servings


  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats (see notes) or steel-cut oats, cooked according to pkg
  • 2 medium Bananas split horizontally
  • 4 to 6 large strawberries sliced
  • 1 medium nectarine diced
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon almonds crushed or sliced
  • You can also stir unflavored protein powder in the oats, yogurt or cottage cheese.


  • Cook the oats according to package directions. I like to cook them in the microwave and let them cool while I get everything else ready. Or, you can make overnight oats with old-fashioned rolled oats. (You can use steel-cut oats if you prefer.) *See notes for overnight oats
  • Slice the bananas horizontally and place in a bowl.
  • Place half of the oats in the center of the sliced banana in each dish.
  • Add half of the yogurt and cottage cheese to the top of the banana.
  • Top with sliced fruit, honey, and nuts. Serve immediately.


You can make traditional overnight oats if you want or you can simply add 1 cup almond milk to 1/2 cup rolled oats and refrigerate them overnight. 
Here is my traditional overnight oat recipe
  • In a mason jar or other container with a lid, add the oats, milk, yogurt, and honey, if desired. Add cinnamon if desired. Stir. Seal.
  • Store overnight in the refrigerator.
  • In the morning, stir (eat cold or heat in the microwave)

    I am a breakfast eater and rarely eat lunch so I need something hearty. I totally loved this oatmeal bowl and never thought of adding cottage cheese on top, but that added creaminess was delicious.
