This easy Overnight Banana Peanut Butter Oatmeal is delicious! You’ll definitely want to get out of bed for breakfast as a great way to start your day! This peanut butter oatmeal is made with chia seeds, honey and walnuts, so it’s a healthy breakfast, too.
Am I the last person to discover how delicious overnight oats are? Oh sure, I have been seeing them on pinterest and even on other friend’s blogs, but have never thought to give them a try. Well that is all changing since I now have made my first batch and I know it won’t be my last. I think originally I was just skeptical, like how can this work? Well skeptic no more, in under 10 minutes I had these whipped up, in the refrigerator and did not have to fuss with breakfast the next morning. They were ready to go and provided a nice healthy way to start my day. And since I’m usually running late to work, e.v.e.r.y minute counts!
So my mornings (at least my work mornings) are supposed to go like this – get up at 4:58 a.m., jump into my workout clothes (well maybe more like fumble into them), fill my water bottle and drive to the club where I meet my workout buddy for 5:30 classes. Monday mornings we go to Power and Wednesdays we go to a class called Barre (it’s like being a ballerina and in a torture chamber at the same time but a great workout!). Thursdays I work out on cardio equipment.
After working out, I head home to eat, shower and get back out the door. I might make some toast or grab a bowl of cereal but then I tend to get fiddling with my iPad catching up on social media and playing Words with Friends. Then yikes, I see I’ve spent too much time and I still need to shower and get out the door. Having this grab and go breakfast is an easy way to get a good meal and cut out prep time. I’ve also made these Apple Pecan Oatmeal breakfast cookies that also are a good way to start your day. Another grab and go breakfast are these Ham and Brie Breakfast sandwiches.
