A popular, dynamic duo comes together with five other ingredients to make Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats. A make-ahead, healthy and delicious breakfast that’s perfect for busy mornings and will surely be a hit for kids & adults.
Peanut butter and banana – a match made in heaven!
A combination adored and loved by so many! Today, on the blog I’m sharing my recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats. You’re going to love how quick and easy this gluten-free recipe is and how it can be made ahead of time to give you a little more breathing room for the morning “busy.” You’re also going to love that I’m sharing my recipe for Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats, too. When trying to decide which of these two recipes to share, a quick poll on Instagram resulted in an even split of interest and quickly persuaded me to share BOTH of the recipes on the same day. So here I am, sharing two of my favorite overnight oat recipes!
Give overnight oats a boost of probiotics with Kefir
While overnight oats can be made with any kind of milk of choice, I personally like to add a fabulous boost of nutrition by making them with Kefir. Kefir is a dairy product that is sour in flavor, but don’t let that scare you off. Similar to yogurt, it’s a fermented food in the dairy family that contains 15-30 strains of healthy bacteria making it very rich and diverse in probiotics – even more than what is found in yogurt. Probiotics are great for immunity, gut health, bone health, and the list goes on. You can learn all about Kefir, what it is, and its benefits in our blog post, What Is Kefir?
an easy way to sneak good nutrition and probiotics into your diet
Not to mention, high in fiber, too! Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats has everything you need to be satisfied and energized for hours. With 7 grams of fiber, 10 grams of fat and 12 grams of protein, it’s great for kids and adults!
Overnight oats will likely become a staple in my diet in just a few weeks when I become a first-time mom and learn the ropes of caring for a newborn! Taking just a few minutes to throw together, they’re nutrient-dense and so easy even my husband could whip up.

A make-ahead Overnight Oats recipe and possibly a new household breakfast favorite
Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats and Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats are to be prepared the night or day before to allow plenty of time for the oats to soak up the ingredients and all the flavors. I recommend enjoying the oats within 3 days of making them for best taste. You can enjoy them warm or cold depending on your personal preference or what your morning schedule allows time for, and you can top them as you please.
I suggest giving both of the overnight oats recipes a try! And if you do, I’d love for you to report back and share your favorite in the comments below! I’d have to say that I lean toward the Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats as my favorite. I’m a peanut butter lover, what can I say.
