Menu Monday: PB Overnight Oats

It took me awhile to get on the Overnight Oats in a Jar kick, but now I eat them at least once or twice a week. I used to think you needed an almost empty peanut butter jar to make them, but I've learned any container will do. This is one of my standby recipes, but the beauty of it is that you can really throw anything together and it'll be good - once you get past the cold oatmeal aspect :)

PB Overnight Oats

1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup water (or more if you want runnier oatmeal)
1 Tbsp chia seeds (you can leave these out)
1/3 banana, thinly sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1-2 tsp peanut butter or whatever is left in the jar



Combine all ingredients in an almost empty peanut butter jar or any container with a lid.


Give it a stir and put in the fridge overnight.


Give it another stir in the morning and enjoy. You can add extra fruit or milk if you want or eat it as-is.



Do you have a favorite overnight oats recipe? Do you ever eat them warm?
