Overnight oats are part of my weekly meal prep every week, no exceptions. I mean, why wouldn't they be? They take about 5 minutes of prep for almost a week's worth of breakfast!
These are my newest obsession. One of my favorite flavor combinations - peanut butter and banana. SO GOOD!! I do not add any sweetener to these. You can add a honey or agave when you first make them. Or try them warmed up with a drizzle of pure maple syrup. I think the bananas, peanut butter and vanilla make these sweet enough already.
The great thing about overnight oats is that they keep you full! Especially with all of these ingredients. Are you following the 21-Day Fix? Each serving is 1.5 yellow, 1 purple, .5 orange, and 3 teaspoons.
2 cups old fashion oats
2 cups skim milk
1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-2 teaspoons honey or agave (optional)
2 bananas (used the day you are eating the oats)
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the bananas. Ladle 4 equal servings into mason jars or other airtight containers. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Warm in the microwave for 45 seconds to a minute, then top with 1/2 a banana, sliced, on each serving.
