Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oatmeal

I'm always looking for things that I can make ahead of time that we can eat for breakfast as I'm not a morning person. Chad loves oatmeal and peanut butter so this recipe was great. I made it for him and he took it fishing with him since it's in a jar. He loved it so I've made it a few times for him. I make two days worth at a time.

Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oatmeal
1 Serving

1/4 Cup Uncooked Old Fashioned Oats
1/3 Cup Skim Milk
1/4 Cup Low-Fat Greek Yogurt
1 1/2 Teaspoons Dried Chia Seeds
1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter (May sub with PB2 - Powdered Peanut Butter)
1 Teaspoon Honey (Optional)
1/4 Cup Diced Ripe Banana (Approx. half a banana)

In a half pint (1 cup) jar, add oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, peanut butter (or PB2), and honey. Put lid on jar and shake until well combined. I had to use a spoon after shaking to get the peanut butter and honey off the sides then I shook the jar again. Remove lid, add bananas and stir until mixed throughout. Return lid to jar and refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. Eat chilled.

**This makes a small serving so I doubled it the first time so it was a complete meal for Chad. However, if you are dieting and don't eat big breakfasts then don't double it.

**You can buy the Chia Seeds anywhere. I got them at Walgreens.
