Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.  I had a really low-key holiday, and truth be told I was in a bit of a funk this Christmas season.

Normally I go on a cookie baking spree that lasts from the day after Thanksgiving until just before Christmas, but this year I baked cookies two days before Christmas and that was it.

I wasn’t really in the mood to gorge myself (and others) with tons of sugar, which was probably the best thing.  My focus was more on the healthy recipes that I would create this year and share with you, including these Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats!

When everyone else was eating holiday inspired breakfast treats in December, my family was eating these peanut butter overnight oats.  And believe me when I tell you that nobody felt that they were missing out!

Overnight oat recipes are very popular here, so I love creating new versions. 

My blueberry overnight oats, coconut overnight oats chocolate overnight oats are some reader favorites.

It’s become a tradition for me the past few years to kick off the new year with a new overnight oat recipe, so here ya go!

Peanut butter overnight oats recipe ingredients

There are just a few simple ingredients needed for this recipe.  

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Old fashioned oats.  See my overnight steel cut oats recipe if you’d rather use those.
  • Chia seeds.  I always add chia seeds to my overnight oats as they thicken the oats perfectly.  If you don’t have any on hand, you may omit them and reduce the quantity of milk by 1/2 cup.
  • Unsweetened almond milk or your favorite.
  • Maple syrup or your favorite sweetener.
  • Peanut butter or your favorite nut butter.  
  • Banana or your favorite fruit.
  • Chocolate chips…optional but highly recommended!

How to make Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

This recipe couldn’t be easier to make!  It takes about 5 minutes to prep, and there is no cook time whatsoever.  The oats soften overnight, giving them a delicious, creamy texture.

  • Place the oats, chia seeds, almond milk, peanut butter, maple syrup and mashed banana in a large bowl and stir to combine.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight.
  • Top with chocolate chips and banana slices, and drizzle additional peanut butter over the top if desired. 

Recipe notes:

  • Overnight oats may be eaten cold or warm.  Warm for about 40 seconds in the microwave, then add optional toppings if desired.
  • No chia seeds?  Omit and reduce the amount of milk by 1/2 cup.
  • For a good source of plant-based protein, I love using unsweetened protein nut milk such as Ripple or Silk.
  • Customize this recipe with your favorite milk, sweetener, nut butter and fruit!
  • Use dairy free chocolate chips to make this recipe vegan!
  • I layered the mashed banana and peanut butter with the oats instead of mixing them in for effect in my photos.  I like using these jars. (affiliate link)
