Bananas, coconut and chunky peanut butter shine in this Chunky Monkey Overnight Oats recipe!
Peanut butter might as well be an entire food group in my diet. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and never get tired of it. I ate a peanut butter sandwich EVERY day of high school and still enjoy one for lunch a couple of days a week.
I’ve been known to stock up during sales or even buy it in bulk. Some might say I have a problem, I just say I know what I like.
So it’s no surprise I was pretty excited to hear about a new peanut butter from my favorite brand, Peter Pan.
Peter Pan Simply Ground Peanut Butter Original and Honey Roast is a peanut butter lovers dream!
It’s has no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives AND there is no need to stir it before you enjoy it. It has that familiar Peter Pan taste that I love so much.
The best part about it is creamy with a little bit of crunch. It’s basically the best of both worlds! It spreads evenly and has the perfect texture.
I found it in the peanut butter aisle in Walmart.
Since I’m trying to get my eating back on track after Key West last week, I decided to whip up a healthy breakfast with Peter Pan Simply Ground Peanut Butter… Peanut Butter Chunky Monkey Overnight Oats.
The ingredient list is balanced and one I can feel good eating. The chia seeds, greek yogurt and peanut butter pack a protein punch. The oats have just enough carbs to give me energy for the day and the potassium in the bananas help my runners legs.
To make it I put the oats, chia seeds and almond milk in the fridge overnight. The oats soak in the moisture and there is no need to cook them.
In the morning, I stir in the greek yogurt and a healthy scoop of Peter Pan Simply Ground. I top it off with a sprinkle of coconut flakes, dark chocolate chips and a healthy drizzle of peanut butter.
Oy!!! Can you see the smooth-ness and the crunchy-ness together? It’s a dream team combination.
This breakfast looks totally indulgent, but is actually a wonderful, clean way to start your day!
Now would any of you judge me if I follow this with a peanut butter sandwich for lunch?
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt plain, vanilla or banana
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter divided
- banana sliced
- 1 tablespoon coconut flakes
- 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
- Mix the oats, almond milk and chia seeds in a container. Put in fridge overnight.

Serves one very hungry person or two smaller breakfasts.
