It takes a lot for my husband to actually like something (food wise)… he’s not picky by any means but he has pretty high standards for food! So when he told me he wanted some kind of overnight oats for breakfast (he LOVES oatmeal- me, not so much!) I told him I’d give it a try! It’s the least I can do since I don’t cook often.. still working on that!
He loves bananas, peanut butter and chocolate chips so it was only necessary to have those as a part of it. The hubs sent me this recipe from Pinterest and said he wanted to try the Chunky Monkey one minus the coconut so off to the store I went! After making this for one week, I just guestimate the amounts of each item now and it’s really impossible to mess up! 🙂
I’m sure so many people already make these but in case you don’t and are looking for an easy breakfast- these Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Overnight Oats are a win!
And of course I took a picture of every step because blog posts are boring with no pictures!
I first add 1/2 cup of oats (not instant!) to a mason jar (or do multiples at a time if you want it for the week!).
I then add about 3/4 (or more – just make sure it covers the oats with a little bit more on top for the other ingredients) of milk- we use 2% because that’s what the hubs loves but you could use skin or almond milk too for added flavor!
Add about 1 tsp of honey – I usually just guestimate how much to put in because I hate dirtying up extra dishes!
Then add about 1 tbsp of peanut butter- this I usually just guess as well now.. I know the hubs loves peanut butter so I probably add a little more than necessary 🙂
I cut up and add half a banana to each mason jar.
And lastly, add in the chocolate chips!
Put on your lid and give it a big shake!
You’re done and ready to put in the fridge for the week!
We’ve tried Apple Cinnamon and a berry one before but none seem to thrill him as much as this one! 🙂 It’s an easy and healthy breakfast meal so it’s a win in my book!
Do any of you make these for breakfast?! I love to hear other recipes so let me know if there’s others you love!
