If you’re looking for a quick and easy breakfast that’s also healthy then these ideas are perfect. Joe Wicks has taken the classic overnight oats recipe and given it his signature tasty twist. One version combines bananas and chocolate for an indulgent taste while the other includes protein-rich quinoa to keep you going until lunch. Both of these recipes serve one person but if you’re making them for more than just yourself then the quantities are easy to multiply.

Ingredients

  • For the banana and chocolate overnight oats
  • 250ml almond milk
  • 2 scoops (60g) vanilla protein powder
  • 1 ripe banana, roughly chopped
  • 1⁄2 tbsp cocoa powder (over 70% cocoa)
  • 75g rolled oats
  • A little grated dark chocolate, to serve
  • For the quinoa overnight oats
  • 40g rolled oats
  • 125g cooked quinoa
  • 2 scoops (60g) vanilla protein powder
  • 250ml almond milk
  • 1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon 3 dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 1 tbsp honey

Method

  • For the banana and chocolate overnight oats

    Chocolate doesn’t have to be unhealthy thanks to this nifty Lean in 15 recipe that uses cocoa to get the delicious flavour without the fat. Joe says, “Just like cheese and wine, chocolate and banana were made for each other. This is a great way to use up bananas that are going black. As they overripen, they become softer and sweeter, both great things for the overall taste of this brekkie.”

    1. Place all the ingredients apart from the rolled oats and dark chocolate in a blender and blitz until smooth.
    2. Pour the mixture over the oats and stir well. Leave to soak in a sealable container in the fridge for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
    3. When you’re ready to eat, sprinkle the dark chocolate over the top.

    For the quinoa overnight oats

    This simple and easy breakfast recipes is one of Joe’s favourites, and he says “This one’s going to keep you full up until lunch, that’s for sure. The combination of cooked quinoa and oats gives it a really nice nutty flavour.”

    1. Tip all the ingredients apart from the apricots, raisins and honey into a large bowl and mix well. Pour the mix into a sealable container and leave to soak in the fridge for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
    2. When you’re ready to eat, remove the lid and top with the dried apricots, raisins and a drizzle of honey.
