Wow. I should have started making these years ago! Just like with spiralizing vegetables, we are a little late to the game on overnight oats in a mason jar…but better late than never! We have a ton of oat recipes (like one of our most popular, Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats) but many of them require a crock pot which also means more clean up.
Enter mason jar oats.
I actually have tried these once before but obviously did something wrong because I didn't like them. We've been super busy lately so I decided to give them another chance as a way to speed up our mornings. I must say I was successful this time!
This particular combination reminds me of our Banana Peanut Butter Protein Shake which is basically the best protein shake ever. So this is like eating that shake. Amazing.
You really don't need much for these so they are prefect for those on a budget. I recommend buying a set of 8 oz mason jars. You'll want all 12 to try different flavors – trust me! Plus, I love drinking juice and flavored water out of mason jars. Mason jars make everything better. It's a fact.
Mason Jar Overnight Oats
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana
- ½ cup quick oats
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1-2 tsp honey or maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp peanut or almond butter
- ½ banana, mashed
- 1/8 tsp vanilla
- 2 squares of dark chocolate (choose quality chocolate 70% or higher)
- Mash banana and break up chocolate (I usually use a meat tenderizer for these tasks!)
- Add all ingredients to a mason jar and stir to combine
- Cover with lid and store in refrigerator for a few hours or overnight if you are making these the night before
Once ready just stir and eat – these are tasty cold but can also be heated up! These make a perfect meal paired with eggs or a protein shake!
Note: For these pictures I doubled the recipe so don't be alarmed if yours doesn't seem to fill up the mason jar as much.
