We’re heading back to school and we all know what our kids need most to start the day off right. A filling, protein-rich breakfast. But, the tricky part is finding the time to do that. Well, I’ve got one here served up on a platter (or a jar) for you.
The great thing about peanut butter and banana overnight oats is that of course it can be made the night before. So, during the hustle and bustle of getting out the door in the morning, it’s much easier to get a healthy breakfast in their tummies (and yours).
They can’t taste the chia seeds and protein rich flax milk, but they can taste a hint of peanut butter. I say hint, but there’s actually quite a bit in there. The blend of flavors here keeps the peanut butter flavor from becoming overwhelming. I found my favorite recipe of overnight oats on Wholefully and I’ve used the same recipe many times changing things here and there until I came to my favorite.
I keep talking about the kids eating this, but I love it too!
Alright, get out a large bowl and some measuring cups. Mix all of your ingredients together. If you don’t have greek yogurt you can use plain. No honey? Try maple syrup. I used flax milk with this one to make it higher protein, but you can use any milk of your choice. There’s plenty of options when it comes to this!
After you mix it really well with a wooden spoon, divide between 2 jars with tight fitting lids. Refrigerate overnight.
The next morning you’re ready to go! If you have picky kids, you can mix in a few chocolate chips.
So, as we get going on the school year, the most important thing you can do for your kids before you send them out the door is make sure they don’t go to school hungry! You’ll be munching on this, too!
