Overnight Oats in a Jar



Need a quick, easy breakfast?  Try this recipe for overnight oats using an almost-empty peanut butter jar.

Now that it’s warming up here in Arkansas, I just really do not want to eat a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning.  I have seen so many of the “overnight oats” and “refrigerator oats” on Facebook  that I thought I should give it a try, but  I was so unsure about cold oatmeal…  I was pleasantly surprised!

This is my take on the peanut butter oat recipe below:


You’ll Need:

1/4 cup Old Fashioned Oats (Not Instant)

1/4 cup Steel-Cut Oats

4 oz Vanilla Almond Milk

Almost Empty Jar of Peanut Butter (~1-2 tsp left in jar)



Once you have an almost empty jar (see above) you are ready to make these oats!


Add all ingredients into jar and stir well.

Put the lid on the jar and let sit in the refrigerator overnight (or about 8 hours.)


Take out and stir well.  Add more cinnamon if desired, or top with fruit!

Also, if you’re using the 21 Day Fix program, the container conversions would be 1/2 yellow old fashioned oats, 1/2 yellow steel-cut oats, 1/2 yellow almond milk and 1-2 teaspoons peanut butter.
