About these Oats
Have you ever tried the pre-packaged overnight oats from Mush? This homemade Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oats recipe reminds me of them—but without the extra sugar! And that peanut butter + banana combo is soooooo stinkin' delicious!
These overnight oats are also high in protein, take less than 5 minutes to make, and will become a staple part of your breakfast routine. I love that I can make them the night before and grab them on a busy morning or even enjoy them as a snack or for lunch or dessert! Plus, you probably have everything you need in your pantry to make them already. 😜

- Oats: I used old fashioned rolled oats. They soak up all the flavor so well! Quick Oats will get too mushy and steel cut will not soften much.
- Yogurt: Adds such a great creamy texture and some protein. I used Two Good Vanilla yogurt, but you could also use a Greek yogurt, too.
- Protein Powder: I suggest vanilla to sweeten the oats a bit more. I used Clean Simple Eats Simply Vanilla. You can use code APOP to save you $$!
- PBFit: This is powdered peanut butter. I like to use it because it's easy! You could use normal peanut butter, however.
- Banana: I recommend using a spotty one so it really sweetens these oats up!

How to Make This Recipe
1. Pour the rolled oats, yogurt, almond milk, and protein powder into a mason jar or small Pyrex bowl.
2. Stir together and then add diced banana with PBfit peanut butter.
3. Mix well and place the lid on the jar/bowl and store in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
4. Stir before enjoying! Top with additional bananas, peanut butter, and chia seed if desired!
Store in the refrigerator. The oats are best enjoyed within 3 days, making them a great option for meal prep! Much longer, however, they'll become pretty mushy.
I recommend using a ripe banana to bring as much sweetness as possible to your oats! If yours are still kind of green, don't worry. Here are some tips on how to quickly ripen your bananas:
If you have a day or two before you’re planning to bake, put your bananas in a brown paper bag overnight. Bananas naturally release ethylene as they ripen. The bag traps the ethylene, allowing the ripening process to happen faster. Adding an apple, pear, or avocado to the bag will also speed up the ripening process.
If you need to ripen your bananas ASAP, you can also use your oven! Preheat to 350°F and bake your bananas with the peel on for 20-30ish minutes until they’re browned and soft. Allow your bananas to cool in the fridge before peeling and using them in this recipe.
I’ve always eaten them cold, but they can absolutely be warmed. Keep in mind that you may need to also add more milk for creaminess if you heat them in the microwave or on the stovetop.
I think adding your favorite granola or more fresh fruit like sliced bananas or berries would be so delicious. You can also add honey, nut butter, or nuts/seeds. Even OatHaus granola butter or Nutella would be amazing!
