Forget about the classic peanut butter and jelly pairing. What goes even better with our favorite sweet and savory nutty spread? Banana. This creamy, protein-packed meal will keep you full all morning long. And the best part is it's ready before you even roll out of bed.



¾ cup old-fashioned oats

½ banana

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1 tablespoon honey

½ to ¾ cup milk (such as whole, skim, almond, soy or coconut)


½ banana, sliced

2 tablespoons peanut butter


1. Make the Oats: Pour the oats into a 1-pint mason jar.

2. In a small bowl, mash half of the banana with a fork. Add the peanut butter and the honey and mix to combine.

3. Add the milk to the jar with the oats. (If you prefer a thicker oatmeal, use less milk.)

4. Screw on the lid and refrigerate overnight, about 8 hours.

5. Make the Toppings: In the morning, top the oatmeal with the peanut butter mixture and banana slices. Eat immediately or screw the top on and take it on the go.
