Banana Nutella option:

To serve, top with other 1/2 banana, hazelnut butter and chopped hazelnuts.
For a vegan option: omit the greek yogurt and instead use 2/3 cup total of non-dairy milk.
For a thinner consistency, add a little extra milk. You can use any milk of choice.
You can use any sweetener of choice instead of honey.
You can use any nut butter of choice as a topping.
Ensure you use old fashioned rolled oats for this recipe, as other types of oats will not work well.
Pro-tip: the base oats mix can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days, so is perfect for meal prepping. Toppings should be added fresh as they won't necessarily keep well.
