School stared for us last week!!! OMG, I just can’t believe that the summer flew by so quickly. I swear Autumn just finished VPK and I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I have a Kindergartener. She did so well her first week. I love that she loves her teacher and learning so much.
She was really excited about school but when it came to having to walk in on her own, she got pretty nervous. Thankfully teachers and other students have been helping her. I think that by next week she will be a pro at getting around.
Hunter is also in preschool in the mornings for 2 days a week. He is going with his best buddy so they are really excited about going together.
Strawberry Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
When it comes to getting kids out the door for school, there is a lot to juggle!
Get dress, brush hair, brush teeth have to be done before we even get down stairs. Then I am packing lunches while they eat breakfast. Before I know it, I’m running out the door with them to get them both off to school on time. Thankfully, we are close by school, so it’s a quick drive, but for other’s I’m sure a long drive is another thing to juggle as well.
I find that it’s easiest to come back and eat breakfast so I’m not running out the door with a piece of toast in my mouth. That is where these delicious Strawberry Peanut Butter Overnight Oats come in. Hunter and I get home, after dropping Autumn off, I run in for a coffee refill and to grab a jar of these oats. Then we head out again so he can ride his bike for a bit, before the Florida heat melts us both.
I love the combination of the rich peanut butter flavor with the sweetness from the fresh strawberries. Plus, the strawberries add a great contrasting texture to the creamy oats.
If you haven’t had overnight oats before then you need to give these a try. You’ll love that they take about 10 minutes to prepare. It just about doesn’t get any easier than that!
If you don’t you don’t have peanut butter powder at home, then you can add a bit of peanut butter directly to the oats. However, I really suggest that you grab some peanut butter powder. Peanut butter powder has about 85 percent less fat than regular peanut butter. As a result you are essentially just adding great protein and fiber to the, already healthy and filling, oats.
Enjoy breakfast in a flash by making a batch of these Strawberry Peanut Butter Overnight Oats today. You’ll love that about 10 minutes of works allows you to just being able to pull breakfast out of the fridge every morning. Even when you’re running late. Easy peasy!!
What is in Strawberry Peanut Butter Overnight Oats?
To make overnight oats, you need old fashion oats and milk. Anything else is what helps layer on the flavor. You can sweeten it with honey or brown sugar. Fruit adds great flavor and texture. The addition of peanut butter powder adds a lot of the flavor for these yummy peanut butter overnight oats.
What milk can you use in overnight oats?
As we drink cow’s milk in our house, we use that. However, I have also made overnight oats with almond milk. It’s great with other nut milks, and rice milk.
How long do overnight oats last?
Store overnight oats in your refrigerator for up to 3 days.
How do you serve overnight oats?
You can enjoy overnight oats cold or warmed up. If you are warming overnight oats, I suggest you do it at 50%. This way you don’t warm up the outside while the center is still cold, it will warm more evenly this way.
