1/2 cup of almond milk, remember that unsweetened is the healthiest option
2 tbsp of peanut butter, powdered if you can find it
1 ripe banana
1 tsp of chia seeds
1 cup of rolled oats
1 tsp of roasted peanuts

Next, how to prepare:

Using a pint size mason jar, add your almond milk
Stir the peanut butter in and mix well
Add the banana and other ingredients and stir
Place in the refrigerator to store overnight
Stir in the morning, add a bit more almond milk for your prefered consistency
Sprinkle with toppings and enjoy your delicious overnight oats

As if that doesn't sound delicious enough, there's another great option in the form of Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats.

Your list:

1 cup of oats
1 cup of vanilla almond milk (this is the best and most tasty of options)
6 ounces of greek yogurt-especially if you are not adding fresh blueberries, you want to try to find blueberry greek yogurt
1 or 2 drops of vanilla extract
1 tbs sugar free vanilla pudding mix
1 tsp of cinnamon
Flake, bran cereal is optional
So are fresh or frozen blueberries-again, if you're using plain greek yogurt then berries are recommended
Note, you can change the berries to any flavor that seems most appealing to you

What You'll Do:

Combine ingredients into a mason jar
Top with your fresh blueberries or whatever fruit you decide upon
Leave in the refrigerator from 3 hours to overnight
