We are officially in back to school season! That tends to mean a lot of hustle and bustle, and not a lot of time to meal prep! I’ve been doing a little back-to-school series to help you guys out with some tips to make time in the kitchen go by really quickly so it’s not on your stress list. That’s one of the reasons I LOVE overnight oats. They are incredibly easy to make, so tasty and this has PEANUT BUTTER IN IT! These Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats need to go on your life staple list!

This breakfast works whether you’re a mom getting your kids ready, or a high schooler making your own breakfast, or a college kid or anyone just going back to work! Yup, every new work season I used to switch out my desk accessories, get new flowers and give myself that refreshing “back to school” feel. These peanut butter banana overnight oats work for that fresh feeling too. If you’ve never tried overnight oats, you’re in for a huge treat.

Overnight oats is a quick breakfast that basically “cooks” itself whilst in your fridge overnight. Think, overnight French toast casserole or even like how a cookie dough sets up divinely overnight. 5 minutes is really all it takes – chop, place into the jar, stir, and then into the fridge. This is the EASIEST breakfast you’ll ever make, and all it takes is a little prep the night before.

It helps to eliminate any excuse to skip out on breakfast since you can prep it the night before and just grab it while you’re running out the door. You can warm it up first – I love doing that, but you can also eat it cold a la cereal. I absolutely love peanut butter, but you can swap almond butter, sunflower seed butter or any other nut alternative butters that you own. Enjoy!

    Dear Jessica! Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe. I prepared it last night and had it this morning for breakfast. It was so deliciously yummy and pudding-like. I have been looking for a breakfast like this for the whole summer. I can’t thank you enough. Have a wonderful day!

  2. Overnight breakfasts are the absolute best! They help me stay on track on those mornings when I want to hit the snooze a few more times! LOL – These oats look absolutely scrumptious, Jessica!

    Will this work with steel cut oats?

  5. wings io says:

    I ate it at the restaurant and enjoyed it. I tried many times but failed. Today saw your guide I learned a lot and drawn many useful things. I believe this time I will succeed. Thanks a lot!

  6. Kelly says:

    This was really really good! Was a bit too much liquid for some reason. Didn’t quite look like yours. May try a bit less milk next time…but the flavor was fantastic!

  7. Amy says:

    I made these a few nights ago. When I woke up, I realized I didn’t have bananas. The oats were still great without the banana slices! I ate it cold from the jar.

      Great! We’re so glad that you liked it without the bananas!
