Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats recipe – the best way to eat oatmeal! Layer oats with banana, peanut butter, flax seeds, brown sugar in a jar, add milk and set in the fridge for the night. In the morning, grab and go or pour into a bowl and enjoy!
We all know oatmeal is good for us but how many times do you dread the soggy, hot oats? Yes! Me too! The overnight oats idea is taking over the internets (okay, it’s totally taking over Pinterest) and I am here to tell you that you need to hop on this wagon asap. This is the best way to have oatmeal.
I will be completely honest and say that I stopped cooking my oatmeal a long time ago. I just eat it with cold milk. Yep, I said it. But this overnight idea of adding bananas, peanut butter and any other add-ons you like to a jar along with the oats and milk and letting it set and “cook” overnight – that is the best!
There are a ton of versions of overnight oats on Pinterest (this cinnamon roll version sounds incredible) but this Peanut Butter Banana version is my and my kiddos favorite. You can make it into individual servings or in a large container. Great way to have the kids eat oatmeal for breakfast! 😀
You can add chopped nuts, use honey instead of brown sugar and even add yogurt to these oats. You can use any milk you like with your cereal. Use almond butter instead of peanut butter. I like to add flax seeds to my oats but you can skip it if you want. Make it how you like it and set in the fridge. Enjoy in the morning!
