You are going to love this peanut butter banana overnight oats recipe! Mornings are crazy in my house since I went back to work full time. I’m generally trying to finish things for my blog, packing my lunch and getting ready to leave for work. Adding a healthy breakfast in there has become a challenge.
Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats Recipe
The beauty of an overnight oats recipe is that you make them the night before. So, in the morning, just grab one of these out of the refrigerator and you’re all set. You can make up this recipe and then enjoy a healthy breakfast for several days afterward.
Peanut butter banana overnight oats variations
The joy of making any type of overnight oats recipe is that you can change it up if you want to. For example, this recipe uses almond milk. But, you can just as easily use regular milk or change it up and make this peanut butter banana overnight oats recipe with Greek yogurt. You can toss in a handful of chocolate chips if you want a more dessert-style recipe.
What type of oats should I use?
Use old fashioned rolled oats in this recipe. If you use quick-cooking oats, your overnight oats recipe will probably come out mushy or in one solid block which is not very appealing.
Can I use other nuts?
If you’re not a fan of peanuts, you can easily use almond butter and chopped almonds. That would be a great option with the almond milk. You could probably also use cashews or any other type of nut that you have on hand.
Can I heat this up?
Because you are making this peanut butter banana overnight oats recipe the night before, it will be eaten cold. When you take it out of the refrigerator in the morning, you can eat it as is. Or, you can put it in the microwave for a minute to make it hot again. Just be sure to take off the lid first.
Can I add protein powder?
You bet! I love having a high protein breakfast. It is a great way to start your morning off on the right foot.
How long will this last in the refrigerator?
Tightly covered, this peanut butter banana overnight oats recipe should stay good in the refrigerator for three to four days. Add the toppings right before you eat them so they are at their tastiest. You can add one scoop of Tone It Up protein powder (or another brand). You might need to increase the milk from 1/2 cup to 1 cup. So, you will need to experiment to see how thick it is when you make it.
