Cinnanut Overnight Oats

Peanut butter. Cinnamon. Oats. Yum.

Overnight oats are not a revolutionary idea. If you’ve been on Pinterest and/or planet Earth at some point over the past few years, you’ve likely run into all kinds of recipes for overnight oats.

What I’m offering here is a very simple AND delicious recipe that does not involve exotic things you don’t have in your pantry {I’m looking at you, chia seeds}. This recipe takes less than 5 minutes to assemble and makes 1 serving—you can easily double or triple it if you want a larger portion {no judgment here!}.

Ingredients

1 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butter)

Banana

Directions

In a microwave safe bowl, heat your peanut butter for 15-20 seconds to soften.

Combine the peanut butter, oats, milk, and cinnamon in a sealable jar/container.

If it looks inedible like the below picture, you did it right:

Put your container in the fridge overnight (6+ hours) to set. When you’re ready to eat, top with sliced banana and a drizzle of honey.

Eat this oatmeal right out of the fridge, or heat it up—it’s delicious either way!

Note: For a faster meal, you can also use quick oats. You’ll still need to let it set up in the fridge, but the time would likely be cut in half.

I love this recipe because I am not a morning person, so having breakfast ready to go is a big plus!

Trying to watch your sugar like Krista? For a quick & easy modification to the recipe above:

Skip the honey and use PB2 instead of peanut butter!
