Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

Breakfast isn’t dubbed the most important meal of the day for no reason! Our bodies are better equipped to utilize nutrients earlier in the day, and studies show that skipping breakfast can increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases and all-cause mortality. The Longevity Diet recommends following a 12:12 circadian eating pattern that aligns with the body’s natural circadian rhythms, such as from 7AM-7PM. This pattern helps to optimize our body's natural processes; as such, breakfast is key.  

Packed with fiber, healthy fats, and plant-based proteins all known to support longevity, these overnight oats can be prepared the night ahead for a hassle-free breakfast ready in the morning – setting you up for the day ahead!  


  • 1 cup rolled oats 
  • 1 cup plant-based milk (almond, soy, oat, etc.) 
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter 
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds 
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 ripe banana, sliced 
  • Optional toppings: nuts, seeds, berries, shredded coconut 


  1. In a mason jar or airtight container, combine rolled oats, plant-based milk, peanut butter, chia seeds, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Stir well. 
  2. Add sliced banana on top of the oat mixture. 
  3. Seal the container and refrigerate overnight (or for at least 4 hours) to allow the oats and chia seeds to absorb the liquid. 
  4. In the morning, give the oats a good stir. Add any additional toppings you like before heading out. 
  5. Enjoy straight from the jar for a quick and nutritious breakfast on-the-go.
