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?

Not at all thank you!
Christina Bauer says
The pictures of this look sooooo amazing! I'm definitely a smooth peanut butter kind of girl. I can't describe the joy I get from the creamy texture of a spoon of PB 🙂
Teresa @ Adventures of the Ugly Paxton Sisters says
Yum! I can't wait to try this! I love overnight oats - so convenient and so many yummy ways to make them. And you had me at "Chunky Monkey" - always my favorite at Ben & Jerry's back in my college days.
Me too! So good-- totally makes me crave ice cream though 🙂

Yes they would! You can feel good about them eating it too.
Sue @ This Mama Runs for Cupcakes says
Oh wow, that looks amazing! I've never had overnight oats before!
It's such an easy and delicious breakfast! The peanut butter really makes it in my opinion.
Amber NElson says
That looks really really tasty! I need to try this.
Thanks Amber! I hope you have a chance to try it!
Runaway Bridal Planner says
Love the name of this treat! Peanut butter and banana's you really had me there:) delicious!
I love chunky peanut better, this is terrible but sometimes I will just stick a spoon in and grab a scoop to snack on, no wonder I eat too many calories some days!
Haha! No it sounds delicious!
Jess @hellotofit says
PB, chocolate and banana are one of my favorite combos. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Me too! Such a dream team combo!
This looks awesome, and healthy too. Would love to have a bite!
Yum! I love overnight oats. I am going to try this combination.
Thanks! I hope you enjoy it!

Nicole @ Fitful Focus says
Want. This. Now. Yum!
Thanks Nicole 🙂
This looks so good. I CANNOT wait to try this. I have never had overnight overs before, but looking at this I will be making them on the weekend. I bet my kiddos will really love it too!
Totally! It's very kid friendly!
Brandy M says
I havenever made a breakfast the night before. I am the only one in m family that likes peanut butter, so I could safely make this without getting it stolen! 😉
That's so sad! We all LOVE PB! I hope you enjoy it!
Alisa @ Go Dairy Free says
I love how these overnight oats combine richness and nutrients! Haven't seen that PB, must keep an eye out ...
Thanks Alisa! It's really good!
Wow that sure looks good. I would love to try this.
Thanks Harriet! I hope you enjoy it!
This recipe makes me so, so sad that I can no longer eat peanut butter. HOWEVER, I bet it would still be amazing with almond butter! Overnight oats are one of my favorite breakfasts ever!
That makes me sad too. Almond butter would be a great sub though! We can't have you sick!
Saidah Washington says
Crunchy peanut butter is so yum. I want to try this creamy with a bit of crunch version.
It really is the perfect combination. I hope you have a chance to try it!
Kelly | Eat Yourself Skinny says

Thanks Kelly! I hope you get a chance to try them!
Rachel @ RachelMcMichael.com says

Thanks Rachel! They do not disappoint!
Morgan @ Morgan Manages Mommyhood says
Uhhhhhhmm this looks unbelievable? I cannot wait to try this!! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Morgan! It's such a simple but yummy breakfast!
Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother Runner says
That does look very yummy I haven't tried that peanut butter yet. Thanks for linking up!
It's so good! I really love it!
Yummy!! This looks so good! <3 I think I have all the ingredients hanging around...but in different states. (sigh.) Will have to attempt to make this once I consolidate my supplies of food! :O
Haha! One day you will have it all back! Hope you get to pick your new location soon 🙂
Stacie @ SimplySouthernStacie says
This looks like straight up dessert (and I'm not complaining whatsoever!).
I know!! It's so good for breakfast though and with just a sprinkle of chocolate... you don't have to feel guilty!
Susie @ SuzLyfe says
I honestly don't like overnight oats, bot I do love everything else about this. Peter Pan makes my favorite whipped PB, but they don't sell the whipped pb here in Chicago. SO TRAGIC
That is so tragic! This new type is really good too!
Blane Sherer says
I enjoy peanut butter too.
I haven't tried that peanut butter.
I think I will.
You should! It's really good!
It's a cruel thing to post something so delicious looking this early and I can't get to the store before work... That looks awesome though and I plan on trying that recipe!! Definitely wouldn't judge you for having a PB sandwich later. I could eat them all day every day too. That's nice this kind isn't a powder. I often waste the extra with the powder kind
Yeah-- I like the real deal... or like this an improved healthy version of the real deal 🙂
