Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

Peanut butter banana overnight oats make the best on-the-go breakfast. They are healthy, easy to make, and 100% customizable.

Made entirely the night before with old-fashioned oats, yogurt, milk, chia seeds, honey, and peanut butter. You can adapt the recipe to suit your taste or diet needs.

Overnight oats are meant to be enjoyed cold and will keep in the refrigerator for up to five days. So you can whip up a batch of these overnight oats over the weekend to enjoy it for breakfast all week long.

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

  • Rolled Oats: Old-fashioned oats are the preferred oats for this recipe. They soak up the liquid really nicely leaving you with creamy texture. I do not recommend quick-cooking oats or steel-cut oats.
  • Peanut Butter: For best texture, use creamy peanut butter. Almond butter can be used instead.
  • Milk: Dairy or non-dairy milk works. If using non-dairy milk, it’s best to stick with unsweetened.
  • Yogurt: Yogurt adds a nice creamy component to the overnight oats. You can use regular or Greek yogurt. Just make sure it’s plain yogurt.
  • Chia Seeds: They plump and absorb moisture as they soak, giving the oats a thicker consistency.
  • Honey: Techinically, sweetener is optional, but I really love the way honey adds a slight sweetness to the oats. You can substitute with maple syrup as well.
  • Salt: Just a pinch of salt to balance out the flavor.
  • To Serve: Sliced bananas and ground cinnamon. I also like to add a small dollop of yogurt for even more creaminess.

And the Best Part?

The toppings!

While you can certainly eat overnight oats as is, they are even better with toppings.

When ready to serve, top your oats with sliced bananas and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy chilled. However, if you prefer your oats warm, simply heat them up before adding the toppings.

For more toppings, try adding fresh berries, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, and a dollop of yogurt.

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats (rolled oats)
  • 2 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp. milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (Greek or regular)
  • 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. honey (or maple syrup)
  • Pinch of salt

To Serve

  • Sliced bananas

Instructions

  1. To a bowl, add oats, peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix in the peanut butter into the oats. Back of a spoon works great for this step.
  2. Stir in yogurt, chia seeds, honey, salt, and the remaining milk.
  3. At this point, you can divide the mixture evenly between individual serving jars with a lid. Or simply leave the mixture in the bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight, or up to 5 days. The oats will soften overnight and the mixture will thicken. They can be enjoyed the next morning.
  4. When ready to serve, top with fresh banana slices and cinnamon. These oats are meant to be enjoyed chilled but if you prefer your oats warm, simply heat the oats in the microwave before adding the toppings.

Notes

  • If you prefer your oats more on the runny side, add an additional 1/4 cup milk.
