    peanut butter overnight oats in a mason jar

    Most mornings, finding the time to eat a healthy and thoughtful breakfast is a challenge. This peanut butter overnight oats recipe will not only solve that dilemma but will also give you something to look forward to in the morning.

    While we’ve all heard about the benefits of eating oatmeal in the morning, making a bowl of oatmeal in the morning can take more than a few minutes, which are minutes we usually don’t have.

    This overnight oats recipe is the perfect way to bypass the time commitment oatmeal normally requires. Simply soak your oats in almond milk before going to sleep, then wake up to a scrumptious breakfast that’s ready-to-eat and easy to take on-the-go.

    For the most efficient way to pack and store this peanut butter overnight oats recipe, we recommend using a mason jar. You’ll add all the ingredients to a mason jar, give a stir, cover with a lid, and store in the fridge.

    This way, if you find yourself running out the door the next morning, your peanut butter overnight oats will be ready for transportation without you putting in any extra effort. Best of all, you can feel good about the fact that your breakfast has heart-healthy ingredients, is low in sugar content, and made with a decent dose of protein to keep you full through the morning.
