Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oatmeal: no-bake, vegan, gluten-free, and tastes amazing!!
Overnight oatmeal is the perfect breakfast! You just add rolled oats, your milk of choice, and sweetener in a jar, shake it up, and put it in the fridge overnight. There’s no baking! I love coming home from a hot morning run and having cold oats for breakfast! For this recipe, I added bananas, peanut butter, cinnamon, and walnuts to make it taste like banana bread…yum!
Assembly is so easy!
Add your rolled oats to a large (quart-sized) jar. Then add the almond milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup, peanut butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt into the jar.
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats*
2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or light coconut milk)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey
3 tablespoons unsweetened peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoons sea salt
Optional Topping Suggestions:
Raw walnuts, chopped
Dairy-free milk of choice
Pour the rolled oats into a large (quart-sized) jar.
Add the almond milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, peanut butter, and salt into the jar with the rolled oats.
Mash the ripe bananas in a bowl and add them to the jar. Stir everything together until well combined. Seal the jar and place it in the refrigerator. Allow the oats to sit overnight.
When ready to serve, stir the oatmeal well. Serve with your preferred toppings: maple syrup, peanut butter, raisins, chopped walnuts, granola, cinnamon, bananas, and/or a splash of your favorite milk (such as almond milk or coconut milk)
