Here’s a super quick recipe – banana and peanut butter overnight oats! Have you ever had overnight oats? They’re a huge trend at the moment, and while I’m jumping on food trend bandwagons, I thought I’d give them a try. I do like to see what all the fuss is about with these things.

Turns out, I’m a fan! (really, there are very few foods that I’m not a fan of…)

If you’re not familiar with overnight oats, they’re so-called because they’re left to soak in milk overnight. It softens the oats right up and gives a porridge-like consistency – you’d never believe that the oats haven’t been cooked. Overnight oats are eaten cold, so it’s a different experience to eating porridge (look at me talking about oats as an experience, I’ve become one of those people) – it makes a really nice change.

You can add whatever flavours you fancy – fruit, nuts, maple syrup or honey, chocolate spread, seeds… I went for banana and peanut butter overnight oats, since PB+B is undoubtedly one of the best combinations ever (none of this PB+J rubbish), and it seemed a good place to start.

These banana and peanut butter overnight oats are the perfect make-ahead breakfast for people who don’t have much time for faffing in the mornings. 2 or 3 minutes of effort the night before, then in the morning you can grab the tub straight from the fridge and you’re all set – much quicker than cooking up porridge. They can even be eaten on the go if you’re running late. Which I usually am.

  1. finally a recipe without chia seeds and almond milk or other as these ingredients are not easy to find in my country. Just need a healthier breakfast option than something else I might grab when in a hurry to get out of the door in the morning. And the protein of PB would hopefully keep me full longer. Can’t wait to try. Thank you for this quick and easy recipe!

  2. This is the best overnight oats recipe yet! It tastes like banana nut bread. I used chia seeds and may use more next time for extra creaminess. Thanks Becca! I’m going to try the apple pie one now.5 stars

  3. The first think I do when I get out of bed is ride my exercise bike 15 minutes or 30 minutes always. and I put 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup oats and microwave `1 1/2 minutes then add milk and hand full of raisins 1/2 t. sugar
