PB Banana Overnight Oats in a Jar

One word can describe how the weather has been this summer: HOT

It's been such a scorcher that just walking outside I am instantly covered drenched in sweat. I'm also pretty sure that Columbus has either set the record or it's pretty darn close to having temperatures above 90 for such a long period of time. So do you really think that I want to cook oats over a hot stove after taking a long walk or short run outside? Nope.

Ladies and gentlemen I give you...

Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats in a Jar

PB Banana Overnight Oats in a Jar

1/4 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
1/3 cup light soy milk
1/4 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
1 tsp dried chia seeds, optional
1 Tbsp peanut butter (I used PB2)
1/4 Splenda packet
½ ripe banana, diced

The ingredients!
-In a half pint (1 cup) jar, add the oats, milk, PB, and Splenda.
-Put lid on jar and shake until well combined.
-Remove lid, add banana and stir until mixed throughout.
-Return lid to jar and refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days, adding the optional chia seeds right before consumption.
-Eat chilled.
How good? So good.

I'm not a huge banana fan but I could not get enough of this stuff! After putting all of the goods in my belly I was a little sad...I wanted more! Whether you're in a hurry in the morning, want to cool off from the hot weather, or want to try something new, these oats may be just for you!

Question of the Day

Do you prefer the frigid winter coldness or the sweltering summer heat?

I'm definitely a freeze baby so I will take the heat any day over below freezing temps. Once I'm cold I can never seem to warm up! My family and I have been going to Hilton Head, SC every summer for the past 19 years! Needless to say it's our home away from home. I love everything about it, especially the heat!
