  1. Hi Nichole! I’m curious how bananas do in overnight oats recipes. Do they get mushy at all or turn brown overnight? Thanks.

    1. They may change color a little but layered between other items they won’t oxidize as fast.

    1. My kids love this – it just depends on the child’s personal preference. If they like peanut butter, banana, and oatmeal the should enjoy this recipe!

  2. Do you have to cook the chia seeds and oats 1st or not? Just starting a plant based diet and it all looks sooooo delicious. Thank you

  3. What was the answer to cooking the oats first? Do I just let the uncooked oats soak up the mixture before putting in the jars or do I need to cook it first? Thanks

  4. I’m assuming you have to eat the next day? Can’t leave in the fridge more than one night correct? Due to the bananas getting brown.

    1. Hi Jeanine, you are correct. Only leave in the fridge for one night. The bananas will turn brown the the oats will become VERY mushy!

  5. I’m wondering if I could do the overnight oats with the almond milk and chia seeds then add the peanut butter and banana the next morning before eating?? Has anyone tried that? I don’t like cold oats so I would like to warm the oats first then add the banana and pb. Plus it’ll keep the peanut butter from stiffening up and the bananas from getting brown. This recipe looks amazing tho! I can’t wait to try it!

  6. So is this recipe supposed to be for two people, or just one person? I see it says the servings is two. Just a little confused.

    1. Betsy, It’s actually 1 serving. I updated the recipe. Please double the ingredients for two servings.:)

  7. To make this more filling, I add a scoop of vanilla protein. Seems to hold my hunger longer with this delicious recipe. You can add a tad more almond milk to compensate.

  8. Very tasty but the nutritional info is very wrong and considering this website seeks to help people lose weight ( like me) I think this should be updated4 stars

  9. Oh Lord have mercy! I made this last night and destroyed it this morning! This was soooo good and filing! I’m not an oatmeal person but this was divine!

  10. If I could just see the ingredients I’m so sure I’m going to make and eat for all in the house!

    1. Here you go:
      1/2 cup rolled oats
      1 tablespoon chia seeds
      1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1 tablespoon honey optional
      1 cup almond milk
      1 banana sliced (very ripe)
      2 tablespoons peanut butter natural, creamy
