Make these peanut butter overnight oats your own
Here are some ways you can jazz up these peanut butter banana overnight oats:
- Add extra fruit: these overnight oats would be delicious with sliced strawberries, blueberries or raspberries for a little PB&J flavor.
- Choose your nut butter: while the peanut butter gives these overnight oats such a delicious flavor, you can also use almond butter, cashew butter or sunflower seed butter. If you wanna get crazy, use chocolate almond butter/peanut butter.
- Have fun with siggi’s flavors: while I love using their vanilla variety in this recipe, I think any of their berry flavors or even coconut would be amazing in here.
- Go (coco)nuts: try using light coconut milk and even adding some unsweetened shredded coconut for extra creaminess and delicious flavor.
- Toppings = love: don’t forget to top with extra banana slices, a drizzle of peanut butter and maybe my homemade granola recipe! Also, mini chocolate chips, anyone?

What Are Overnight Oats?
Overnight oats are made from combining whole grain rolled oats with a liquid, like almond milk, and other tasty ingredients like nut butter, yogurt, or fruit. The oats soak overnight in the liquid, soften, and have the perfect creamy texture, similar to stovetop oatmeal.
Can You Eat Them Warm?
Yes! While overnight oats are meant to be eaten cold instead of hot, like traditional oatmeal, you can heat them up if you prefer. I recommend giving them a try cold first though to see how you like them.
If you would like to heat them up, you can do so by heating them for 30 seconds at a time in the microwave until warm.
Ingredients for Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats
Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats are packed with nutritious ingredients and when combined make for a hearty, satisfying breakfast with a good balance of fat, protein, and carbs. Here’s the lineup:
- Oats. For any overnight oats recipe, it’s best to use old–fashioned rolled oats. Quick oats can work, but will result in a softer, mushier texture.
- Milk. Whatever milk you enjoy will work great in this recipe. I like unsweetened almond milk best.
- Greek yogurt. This makes your oats super creamy and gives them a nice boost of protein. Use any favorite yogurt. I would recommend plain or vanilla yogurt, so that the banana/peanut butter flavors really shine through.
- Chia seeds. These are optional, but I always add them to my overnight oats because they make the oats super thick and more satisfying.
- Cinnamon. For a boost of flavor!
- Banana. I love banana slices in my overnight oats, but feel free to use strawberries, apples, blueberries, or blackberries instead!
- Peanut butter. Such delicious flavor and extra healthy fats. Feel free to use another type of nut butter, or omit it, if you prefer.
How to Make Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats?
This overnight oats recipe could not be easier – mix, soak and enjoy!
- Mix. Combine oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds and cinnamon in a sealable jar, bowl or container (I like to use a 16-ounce mason jar). Gently fold in the banana slices and peanut butter.
- Soak. Once you have all your ingredients stirred together, simply cover and place the oat mixture in the fridge to soak for at least 3 hours or overnight.
- Enjoy! When you’re ready for breakfast, grab your overnight oats from the fridge, add a splash of milk for a smoother consistency and give the oats a stir. Don’t forget your favorite toppings!
