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.

Overnight Oats Ingredients
To make this easy overnight oats recipe, you will need the following ingredients (see the recipe card below for exact amounts):
You will also need 8oz mason jars for this recipe.
How to Make Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
- 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 and up to 5 days. When ready to eat, microwave for 30 seconds to a minute.
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.
