5 Minute, Healthy Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats

5 Minute Healthy Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

Quite easily my favorite, healthy peanut butter and banana overnight oats recipe. I double it, store it in 2 mason jars, and have breakfast for a full week! I’ve been using this recipe for over 2 months now, and it does not get old or bland.

I honest to God look forward to waking up at 5 am to go to Crossfit with the knowledge that I’m coming home and having THIS for breakfast. When I’m doing pull-ups or burpees, I just think of the oats and peanut butter waiting for me at home and I’m motivated to keep going.

The whip cream is my personal addition – I LOVE it as it adds a bit of sweetness, and a deliciously silky texture in combination with the oats. Sometimes I’ll stack it so I have a layer of oats, layer of whip cream, layer of oats, finished with a layer of whip cream. Kind of like an oatmeal trifle.
