Peanut Butter Oatmeal Overnight
Today I share one of my new breakfast obsessions: peanut butter overnight! I'm a total breakfast junkie, but it can be so boring so fast.
After eating old oatmeal every day for weeks, one tends to get sick and a little tired. But at the same time, you need something that is healthy, fast and easy to do because nobody has time in the morning, right? And so I discovered the beauty of night oats. These peanut butter oatmeal overnight in particular.
This peanut putter overnight oatmeal recipe is one of the most delicious healthy breakfast recipes I've had in a long time. Probably because it contains peanut butter and chocolate chips. I mean, who wouldn't want chocolate peanut butter breakfast?
Plus, it's packed with protein, fiber, and antioxidants. You can easily change it up a bit, add some sliced bananas, trade in peanut butter for almond butter, or add some fresh strawberries. Either way, it's always delicious and easy. More or less the most perfect breakfast!

How to Make Oat Peanut Butter Overnight
These peanut butter oats are very easy to make, no cooking required! Just follow the simple steps below to get started.
- Mix the ingredients together. Mix all ingredients together in a mason jar or small bowl. Do not cook oatmeal, add it dry (it will absorb the liquid overnight). Cover the container with plastic wrap or close the jar with a lid.
- Let cool in the fridge overnight. Place the oatmeal overnight in the refrigerator to chill overnight.
- Get up and enjoy! The next morning, top with banana slices, peanut butter, honey, and chocolate chips if desired. Serve cold.
Great for food preparation!
One of my favorite things about this overnight peanut butter oatmeal is that they are great for preparing meals. Overnight nights will stay cool in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, making them the perfect meal preparation breakfast!
Simply double or triple the recipe depending on how many days you would like to enjoy at breakfast. Then pour equal amounts of the base mix into pyrex containers or glass jars and store in the refrigerator.
When I'm ready to enjoy, I like to mix in some almond milk before adding the other ingredients. Because oatmeal is in the fridge longer, the extra hint of almond milk keeps the texture creamy and moist. Then add your favorite ingredients and dig deeper!
