Peanut Butter Fig Overnight Oats
If you are looking for a great way to make a filling breakfast that is packed with nutrients, then you have to try overnight oats. The flavor possibilities are seemingly endless, but I am partial to peanut butter. Make breakfast for the week ahead of time and grab one when you are on the go!
What are Overnight Oats?
Overnight oats are pretty much what they sound like. You prepare them the night before and let them sit overnight. In the morning, you have a perfect breakfast! The oats will soak up all the liquid and be ready in the morning for consumption. I love to meal prep and this is a great breakfast meal prep idea.

You will need 8oz mason jars for this recipe.
2/3 C of old fashioned oatmeal
2/3 C of Greek vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 C of milk
1 T of peanut butter, slightly melted (more for topping if desired)
2 T of graham crackers, finely crushed
1 C of dried figs, chopped
In a medium bowl mix together oatmeal, yogurt, milk and peanut butter.
In two small glass jars put in 1 tablespoon of graham crackers, top with a quarter mixture of oatmeal, add in a ¼ cup of figs, then top with a quarter of the oatmeal mixture. Repeat process in the other jar. If desired, garnish the top with additional graham crackers (about a ¼ teaspoon), figs, and peanut butter (a ¼ teaspoon of each).
Tighten lid of jar and refrigerate 2 hours- 5 days. When ready to eat, microwave for 30 seconds to a minute.
Note: The peanut butter will make the oatmeal thicken, so it may look like too much liquid, but it will thicken up overnight. If desired, add in more milk after heating when ready to eat.
If you don’t have mason jars, you can make it in a bowl as well.
