Overnight Peanut Butter Oats

Two of my kids love oatmeal and I will say I am a fan of oatmeal too. Isabella wanted something different for breakfast and was asking for ideas. I thought about overnight oats, but I wasn’t sure she would like them. I was wrong, she loved them. She thought they were so full of flavor and delicious. She also liked them because it was a quick breakfast for her to eat. While she is a morning person, she eats super slow in the morning. I gave some to JJ and he loved them the first time. Now overnight oats are the menu weekly at our house. Before you ask Lele doesn’t like oatmeal and she hasn’t wanted to try them yet.

Overnight oats are great for those busy mornings. You literally throw everything in a jar and shake it until it is mixed. Place the jar with the lid in the refrigerator and let it do it’s thing there and in the morning they are ready to go. Pull the jar and serve it 2 bowls. You can mix it one jar and then split it between jars to make your morning a little easier. I have done it both ways. For this recipe. I slice some banana and it to the top in the morning. You can even add a little extra peanut butter in the morning if you want.

This is an easy meal for breakfast and kids love it.
