Can we talk about how difficult it is to make beige food look pretty? I apologize in advance that this recipe is far from beautiful, but what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in flavor. Give me PB and banana everything!

My brain is already slowly transitioning from summer to back to school mode. Here in Arizona school starts at the end of July (crazy, right?!). When you start to see make-ahead breakfasts and lunch box ideas on my blog you know I’m thinking about back to school. This year our youngest starts preschool, which means a couple mornings each week both of my kids will be at school. I’m not really sure how I feel about that. Happy? Relieved? Sad? Nostalgic? Yes, yes, yes and yes. I can’t believe we’re here already. It is so incredibly true that the days are long and the years are short.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Anyway, enough blubbering from this emotional mama, let’s talk overnight oats! Our family loves oats and I make some type of “oatmeal” every week: Baked Oatmeal, Oatmeal Cups or Overnight Oats. The thing that’s great about this recipe is that there is no cooking involved. You just mix up the ingredients, let them sit in the fridge overnight, and breakfast is served. You can choose to heat your oats in the microwave right before serving (my preference), or you can eat them cold.

I absolutely love that these oats feature the combo of peanut butter and bananas; the flavors are so comforting and hearty. I usually add extra peanut butter to the oats right before serving because I love to see those thick swirls of peanut butter. It’s like they’re calling to me, “Grab a spoon, let’s get this day started.”

    I just made the overnight oats last night! What a wonderful, tasty treat to wake up to in the morning! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Julie Evink


      So glad you enjoyed them Dana!

  • Krystal


    Can I use steel oats for this? What’s the difference anyways, if any?

    • Allison Mattina


      Hi, Krystal. No, you can’t. Steel cut oats have to be cooked. They are thick and hard, and soaking them will not soften them enough. Rolled/old fashioned oats are processed to make them softer, they need to be used in this recipe.

    Have you ever made these without the Chia seeds. I am moving to Guatemala and will have a difficult time finding Chia.
