Steel Cut Overnight Oats in a Peanut Butter Jar
I had to type up this post super quick because, guys, this is the best EVER!
I’d seen the overnight oats and peanut butter jar oats on Pinterest, but still hadn’t had the opportunity to try them. I almost had a stroke a week ago when one of the kids threw out a perfectly good jar of almost-finished PB I could have used for this! But, my PB finished last night (yes, Mom has her own), so it all worked out!
I’ve made steel-cut oats on the stovetop with some cinnamon water, and I’ve microwaved them as well and they have *never* come out this soft and comforting!
16.3oz. Peter Pan Honey Cream Roast jar, almost empty of PB
1/3 cup dry steel-cut oats
2/3 cup of almond milk (or the milk of your choice)
1/2 a banana, sliced in half and then diced
A dash of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
Dump everything into your almost-empty jar of peanut butter, replace the lid and give it a good shake! Leave in the fridge overnight and by the a.m. it’ll be ready to go!
I don’t recommend microwaving the plastic PB jar since it can melt, but I’m a rebel, so I did–just for 30 seconds. And it was GLORIOUS!
You can follow the same steps without an almost-empty PB jar by putting all your ingredients into a tall microwaveable storage jar with lid or a Mason jar (add about a tablespoon of peanut butter). Not sure how those do in the microwave, though (I have to have warm oats!). I think I may try blueberries or strawberries next time, too! So good for taking to work or on errands with you!
