  • 1 large banana approx 100 grams
  • 300 ml any milk
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons pure peanut butter
  • 4 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons  maple syrup or honey (optional)


  • Start by mashing your ripe banana with a fork until smooth. Then, mix in your favorite peanut butter to create a delicious and creamy base.
  • Pour in your chosen milk and stir well until everything is thoroughly combined and there are no streaks of peanut butter.
  • Now, add your rolled oats, chia seeds (if using), ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt (optional) to the mixture. Give it a good stir to ensure all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Divide the oat mixture between two mason jars or airtight containers. Seal them tightly and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight.
  • In the morning, grab your jar of overnight oats and enjoy! Feel free to add your favorite toppings like sliced banana, chopped nuts, granola, a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, or even a dollop of yogurt for an extra creamy and delicious breakfast.


  • You can use any type of milk you like, such as dairy milk, almond milk, oat milk, or soy milk.
  • Feel free to adjust the amount of peanut butter to your preference.
  • This recipe is easily doubled or tripled to make enough for the whole family.
  • While rolled oats are the recommended choice due to their quicker soaking time and ideal texture, steel cut oats can also be used! Adjust the soaking time (aim for at least 8 hours, or preferably overnight) and potentially add more milk to achieve the desired consistency.
