I'm obsessed with peanut butter!! It's not uncommon to find me on a weeknight watching Netflix with a spoon and a jar of Mayver's in my lap!
I stumbled across overnight oats on Pinterest, and thought it would be a great thing to try because, as a new mum, I wasn't eating breakfast until 11am most days. I also thought it would be a nice change of pace for my husband because it would mean no breakfast prep for his 6am start.
I usually make him a classic overnight oat recipe with grated apple which he loves, but I wanted to try a sweet version featuring my beloved peanut butter!
Peanut Butta + Banana Choc Chip Overnight Oats
1 LARGE serve, or 2-3 small serves
1/2 cup of rolled oats (heaped)
1/3 cup of yogurt (greek yogurt or coconut for a dairy-free option)
2/3 cup of almond milk
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Pinch of rock salt
1 tablespoons of honey (or maple syrup)
1-2 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 small/medium banana, cut in half longways, then cut into bit size pieces
Chocolate chips (quantity is your personal preference!)
Place all the ingredients into a bowl and fold together with a spoon. Mix well, then place in your desired container. I recommend chilling them overnight, but they are usually ready in about 4 hours.
You can make these on Sunday evening for the whole week so that you have a grab-n-go breakfast on your way to work. For the mamas out there, this no fuss meal that you can quickly shovel in your gob while your bubby has their morning play on their mat.
You can eat them as they are, add a dollop of fresh yogurt on top, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon if you fancy!
* If there is fresh fruit in the overnight oats, I try to consume it within 2-3 days *
What is your fav, go to breakfast? I'd love to know. Comment below...

I think eating well is a form of self-respect, and that's evident in my recipes.
