  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 snack size Detour SMART® Coconut Almond Gluten Free Oatmeal Bar
  • 1/2 cup vanilla or plain greek yogurt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (you may need a little extra in the morning)
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 large, ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • ½ tsp coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp of honey or agave (optional for additional sweetness)
  • ½ banana (optional for garnish)


  1. Chop the Detour SMART® Coconut Almond Oatmeal Bar and the walnuts into tiny bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a separate bowl, mash up the ripe banana with a fork (until it reaches a pudding-like consistency).
  3. Grab your mason jar or an airtight container. Add the rolled oats, greek yogurt, almond milk, mashed banana, chia seeds, chopped up SMART bar, walnuts, vanilla, cinnamon, and coconut flakes.
  4. Close the top (make sure it’s sealed tight!) and shake it until all ingredients are combined. At this point, give it a little taste (you may choose to add honey or agave for additional sweetness).
  5. Now, simply put the lid back on, go to bed, and leave in the refrigerator until morning.
  6. In the morning, you may want to add additional almond milk.
