Here’s a deliciously filling recipe for overnight oats that only takes a little planning and prep work. I had been making this recipe without the peanut butter and honey for quite some time, and using maple syrup as a sweetener. I was craving peanut butter and decided this would be the perfect flavor combination for the oats. I gave it a try and have been making it this way ever since!
Measure out the ingredients and combine the dry with about 3/4 of the milk.
Microwave the rest of the milk, peanut butter and honey. This makes it easier for the peanut butter and honey to combine with the other ingredients.
Shaken not stirred 😉
Cover and let it sit over night in the fridge, in the morning top with your favorites. I like a half banana, and raw pecans for some crunch.
Peanut Butter + Honey Overnight Oats
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon chia seeds
3/4 cup milk (Use your milk of choice)
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon honey
In an 8oz or 12oz resealable jar combine the oats, chia seeds and 2/3 of the milk. In a separate microwave safe container combine the remaining milk, peanut butter and honey, microwave about 20 seconds or until warm enough to stir and combine all ingredients. Once wet ingredients are fully mixed together and smooth, pour into the dry mixture and close the lid on tight. Give it a good shake and put in the refrigerator overnight.
I like to eat it cold, but it can be heated in the microwave if you want it warm. Be sure to remove the metal lid if microwaving.
Enjoy topped with a banana and pecans or any of your other favorite toppings!
