Yes, I know I posted a Hummingbird Cake like, five minutes ago. But I was so inspired that I just HAD to create these delectable Hummingbird Overnight Oats! They’re packed with fiber, protein, and healthy fats while staying true to the flavor profile of the OG cake we know and love. (PS! Be sure to check out my original post for the fascinating history of Hummingbird Cake.)

Hummingbird Overnight Oats Key Ingredients

Rolled Oats: I buy mine in bulk at Costco because of who I am as a person.

Milk of Choice: Be sure to use plant-based milk to keep vegan!

Greek Yogurt: Dairy or plant-based will work! You’ll be using this for the oats and for the cream cheese topping.

Bananas: Ripe is best!

Pineapple: Hot tip! You can totally use frozen pineapple for this. I let mine defrost and then chop into smaller pieces. I love nothing more than fresh pineapple, but sometimes we don’t have time.

Pecans: Walnuts work too!

Maple syrup: For just a bit of sweetness. You won’t need too much thanks to the banana.

Cinnamon: A crucial ingredient for true hummingbird vibes.

Cream Cheese: For a cute little Greek yogurt cream cheese topping! Obvi use dairy-free to keep things vegan.

Vanilla and Salt: Awkwardly grouping these two together because c’mon. You know why they’re here.
