Make Your Own Yummy Breakfast: Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats


Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats Breakfast

What You’ll Need:
  •     A cereal bowl
  •     Measuring cups/spoons
  •     Spoon

  •     1 Cup Almond milk
  •     1/2 Cup Rolled oats
  •     2 TBSP Peanut Butter
  •     1 TBSP Maple syrup
  •     2 TBSP Ground flax seed (whole chia seeds can be substituted here)
  •     1/2 TSP Cinnamon
  •     1 Banana
  •     Slivered almonds


In a bowl, mix together the almond milk, maple syrup, flax seed, and cinnamon.
Add your peanut butter and swirl into the mixture. Don’t completely mix so that you achieve the swirl look. It’s also a fun surprise when you get a bite with a bunch of peanut butter!

Pour in the oats and stir ’em up!

Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator overnight. This will both soften the oats and activate the flax/chia seed to thicken your oatmeal. Flax and chia contain Omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, and magnesium, and have been rumored to lower your risk of certain maladies including heart disease and diabetes. It is also an egg/butter substitute (its purpose here).

In the morning, stir it up again. Check the consistency. Depending on how thick you like it, you can add a bit more almond milk (I usually end up adding about a  tablespoon more because I like it a bit more loose).

Cut up your banana and stir into the oatmeal.

Top your delicious treat with a healthy dusting of cinnamon, a delicious drizzle of maple syrup, and some of those crunchy slivered almonds.
