Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

The newest craze on Pinterest – overnight oats. Without a doubt the easiest gourmet breakfast to make in less than ten minutes, this recipe will have your tummy smiling all day long. I found some ideas all over Pinterest, but this one is truly an original.

What you’ll need:

  • Instant oatmeal
  • yogurt (any flavor)
  • peanut butter
  • honey
  • chocolate chips
  • extra garnish (bananas, pecans, walnuts, etc.)

directions:

Step 1: Add about 1/2 a cup of instant oats to your glass.

Step 2: Add 1/2 a cup of regular or Greek yogurt, flavored or unflavored.

Step 3: Add a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter. (I’ve got ten jars of this stuff, so I used three spoonfuls.)

Step 4: Add a spoonful of chocolate chips. This is what gives it a cookie dough-type flavor and it’s AWESOME.

Step 5: Add a spoonful of honey. (Or don’t, if you’re not that much of a sweet tooth.)

Step 5: Admire your masterpiece. Either mix it, cover it, and stick it in the fridge, or leave it beautiful and go straight for the fridge. Although, mixing it allows the yogurt to really penetrate the oats and make them nice and thick, so I really recommend mixing it, even though it might not be as pretty.

  

Step 6: Let the oats sit overnight, and enjoy first thing in the morning! You can heat them up, or leave them cold, which is what I did. Enjoy!
