Overnight PB, Banana, & Blueberries Oatmeal Recipe and Giveaway # 4

Pin It
We eat a lot of oatmeal at my house.  It is one of my favorite go to breakfasts with a bit of raisins and pecans added in.  Lately I have been seeing lots and lots of overnight refrigerator oats online.  Oats that don't require cooking?  Oats that soften and taste good after a night in the fridge?  Oats without Raisins or Pecans?  This sounded a bit strange but also crazy delicious.  The more I saw online the more I had to try it.  So I did..and my husband and I loved it.  The kids didn't go for this flavor much but I think they would like it if it had been a bit sweeter.  I will absolutely be trying this again and playing around with different flavors.  I really liked having the Chia Sees in the mixture.  Very good.   I found the recipe here and made a few little changes of my own. 

You will need Old Fashioned Oats, Ripe Bananas, Peanut Butter, Half Pint Jars, Blueberries, Yogurt, Honey, Chia Seeds, and Milk.

Add the Oats and Chia seeds to the Half Pint Jar.

Next add in the Yogurt and Honey.

Add in a good scoop of Peanut Butter.
Then add sliced Bananas and fresh Blueberries.

Pour in some Milk and put the lid and ring on the jar.

Then shake, shake, shake the jar.  I also gave the contents of the jar a good stirring because  a bit of the honey stuck to the side and didn't want to mix in.  Pop in the fridge and let sit overnight. 
The next morning give the jar another little shake.  Take off the lid and top with a few fresh Blueberries.  Add a little honey for added sweetness.

Yum!  Enjoy!
My tiny one wouldn't let the spoon get any closer to her mouth than this.  Little stinker wouldn't even give it a try!

My oldest tried a few bites but in the end chose to eat Krave Cereal instead.

  1. I enjoy oatmeal too. I typically go the easy route and I like the little packets of instant oatmeal from Quaker with the berries and flavors in them. Since I have a lot of chia seed that I got for my running (and I'm not using), I think I may try adding it to the oatmeal after seeing this.

    1. I really liked the Chia seeds added in. The overnight oats turned out really good. If you try them like this let me know :)
