Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

I'm currently hooked on Overnight Oats. It's a quick and filling breakfast that lasts all day. The flavor combinations are endless, but my current favorite is this Peanut Butter Banana one.

1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 6 oz container of banana yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1 medium banana, sliced
1 heaping tablespoon Peanut Butter

Add all ingredients in a mason jar, stir and cover. Store overnight in the fridge and enjoy cold in the morning.

Other flavor combos include vanilla yogurt with an apple and a sprinkle of cinnamon, blueberry yogurt with fresh or frozen blueberries blueberries, strawberry banana yogurt with fresh strawberries and bananas, raspberry yogurt with fresh or frozen get the idea.

I don't always have time to make breakfast in the morning, and hot oatmeal isn't very appealiong to me. This is perfect because I can grab the jar in the morning on my way out the door and eat it at my desk.

For a little crunch, you can top with some granols right before you eat it.

Note: If you use greek yogurt you might need to add a little more milk. I use light yoplait yogurt. They have a ton of flavors and are usually pretty cheap.

If you don't have a mason jar, any bowl with a lid will do.
