Overnight oats are honestly my go-to weekday morning breakfast. I prep a few glass containers with oats on Sunday night and when it’s time for breakfast, I just pull one out of the fridge. You don’t even need to heat it up! One of my favorite things about overnight oats is that they are never boring- each week I use different fruits and mix-ins to keep it interesting. Some of my favorites are my Blueberry Almond Overnight Oats, the Lemon Honey Overnight Oats from the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, and these Peanut Butter & Berry Overnight Oats.
I love that these Peanut Butter & Berry Overnight Oats are reminiscent of PB & J. The peanut butter is mixed directly into the oat mixture, which makes them super flavorful and creamy. Pure maple syrup adds a bit of sweetness and chia seeds help to thicken it up. I topped it off with a handful of fresh strawberries and the result was seriously delicious. I think this would also be great with raspberries or a mixture of both strawberries and raspberries.
Overnight Oats are also very portable. I usually make mine in a mason jar (but they don’t photograph as well that way, hence the glass pyrex containers in these pictures), and you can just grab it out of the fridge and throw it in your bag to eat once you get to work. Sometimes I will drink a protein shake for breakfast and then bring my Overnight Oats to work to eat as a morning snack around 10AM. Whenever you choose to eat them, you’re making a great healthy food choice. The oats will keep you satisfied for hours and depending on what you use as mix-ins, can contain a variety of vitamins and other nutrients.
