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.

Recipe Tips

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.
