Are you drooling yet?!  I know I am!  It’s past midnight, I’m writing this post, and I’m having a major CRAVNG for these overnight oats.  Good news is…I’ve got myself covered because I planned ahead…my peanut butter & banana overnight oats are in the fridge waiting to be eaten!  I shared this recipe with my bestie, Jenn Glover of Carolina Girl Cooks, and she whipped it up and photographed it so beautifully…she even said she could hardly stand looking at it and devoured it just as soon as she finished shooting it!
I’m not kidding when I say I get so excited to eat these oats…not only are they delicious and filling but they are super healthy for you too!
I typically eat these on my regular calorie/regular carb days within the FASTer Way to Fatloss bootcamp that I have been doing since January.  There is nothing better than digging into these overnight oats after coming off of two low carb days!  It’s like having a treat without the guilt because I know I am fueling my body with superfoods and lots of protein!
If you’ve never made overnight oats…look no further…this is where you MUST start.  I promise you won’t be disappointed!  Bookmark this page or pin one of the above images for easy reference.
Recipe details are below!  If I were a betting woman…I’d bet that many of you reading today’s post will be making this recipe sooner than later!  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats



  • 1 cup of rolled oats, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups of almond milk (or other nut milk, divided)
  • 4 Tbsp chia seeds, divided
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp all natural peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp of pure maple syrup
  • 4 tsp of cinnamon, divided
  • *optional: pecans (or any nut) for topping


  1. Pour 1/2 cup oats in two mason jars. Add in 3/4 cup of almond milk, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to each jar. Mix to combine, screw the tops on and stick it in the fridge over night.
  2. In the morning, you can either heat the oats up in the microwave or eat them cold. I like to add another dash of almond milk before eating the oats. You can do this before you heat them or before you mix in the toppings if you’re eating them cold.
  3. Add 1/2 of the sliced banana, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter to each jar of oats and top with chopped pecans and another drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.
