Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

We've made no secret of the fact that we have oatmeal for breakfast every day. It makes a wonderful carrier for healthful nutrients and we really like to pack them in.

But when the weather turns warm, the hot oatmeal that was warming on a chilly morning is not refreshing at all. So we often turn to a different formulation like these Peanut Butter Overnight Oats.

Overnight oats are perfect for breakfast on the go. You can meal prep a whole week's worth of these and just grab one on your way out the door.

As the oats sit in the soy milk overnight, they soften to the texture you're familiar with in cooked oats. You can eat them cold or heat them up in the microwave if you prefer.

I have no problem eating breakfast straight out of bed. But that's probably because I have the luxury of waking up naturally. Back when a harsh alarm jolted me out of sleep, it was much harder to be ready to eat. With overnight oats, you can get on your way and eat them later when you're ready.

With the addition of the blueberries on top, these Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are almost like the oat form of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk or non-dairy milk of your choice, use a little more to make it creamier
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries


  • Mix oats, milk, chia seeds, and peanut butter together in a container like a mason jar. Add frozen blueberries to the top. Refrigerate overnight. Stir and enjoy the next morning adding more milk if desired.


Customize as you wish! Sometimes we add freshly sliced banana the next morning instead of the frozen blueberries.

Have you had overnight oats before? If so, what are your favorite toppings and add-ins?
