Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are a classic! A staple breakfast recipe, these oats can go with you anywhere! Mashed bananas, creamy oatmeal, and silky peanut butter all wrapped up into one perfect on-the-go breakfast.
Hey guys! I’m back with overnight oats today!
BUT FIRST! I want to share something pretty cool with you! I have a large piece of me that’s dedicated to helping women overcome eating disorders, and after much denial, I’ve decided to pursue it a little further. If you head on over to the Overcome Disordered Eating menu option, you’ll find a free downloadable. I wanted to provide you with 8 of my best tips for overcoming disordered eating because it’s seriously a major problem, not only in our gender, but in our culture. We were designed for so much more! If you’ve been noticing that your relationship with food provokes anxiety, fear, guilt, or shame when you “fall off plan,” then this guide is for YOU! Head on over!
Okay, back to oats. I won’t lie to you – I eat overnight oats for breakfast 4 out of the 7 days in a week. I workout in the morning and then rush to get to work, so it’s definitely useful to have breakfast already made and ready to go. Overnight oats are a classic and they’ve been made countless times. But it’s just because they’re SO good! And the Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oats variety is one of my favorites!
I just like to mix everything together in a container and let the oats soak overnight. Meaning, too lazy to actually cook up oatmeal, wait for it to cool, and then store it in separate containers. Sometimes, I just don’t have time for that! Mashed banana, oats, chia seeds, yogurt, peanut butter, and almond milk all come together to bring you this amazing overnight oat combo. With extraaaaaa peanut butter!
Truthfully, these were supposed to be Banana Almond Butter Overnight Oats, but I bought the wrong jar of nut butter at the store and didn’t realize it until I was assembling these! So then we had three (you read that right) jars of peanut butter in our cupboard. It was excessive and life is good. It’s a good thing peanut butter pairs well with literally everything. If you wanted to go a little crazy, your topping options are endless. Toss some granola on top! Or pecans, toasted walnuts, dried cranberries… chocolate? Yes, think so.
These Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are easily doubled, giving you almost a full week’s worth of on-the-go breakfasts! And I bet your kids or hubby would even enjoy them! Sweet, soft and creamy, peanut buttery, easy to pack and eat… the best breakfasts are the ones you don’t have to think about making. Unless it’s the weekend… then pancakes always trump.
Comment below with your favorite overnight oats combo! And please don’t forget to head on over to this page to get working on overcoming any disordered relationship with food you might have! Don’t wait another day!
