Easy Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats Recipe (Vegan): a quick recipe for vegan overnight oats with banana & peanut butter! Healthy, Gluten Free, Dairy-Free & Delicious.
Are you having a wonderful August so far? I hope so. 🙂 Erik and I just moved to Minneapolis and things are kinda cray. And by “cray” I mean INSANE! We just packed up everything and left our on-and-off home, Boston, for perhaps the last time ever.
I’ve been living on and off in Boston and its surrounding parts since I was in college. It’s where I grew up, learned how to be independent, and finally saw my mom (a newly minted & proud Grandma at the time) settle in. It’s where I first held my nephew, Dylan… who was once a tiny baby and is now a basically-grown-up 6-year-old.
It’s where my sister, Jenny, and I weathered a storm in our family that we never thought we’d recover from. But we did. Together. It’s where so many memories, both sad & happy, silly and serious were made.
It’s where Erik and I moved for his first time living outside of California. And it’s the first place we left for a new home that we picked for ourselves—not for family, not for obligation, not for others. It’s just for us. So wish us luck! We hope we made the right decision. 😉
While we share a few tissues and wistful sighs, mind if we whip up some easy peanut butter banana overnight oats? After all, peanut butter fills in the cracks in the heart. ❤️
Easy Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats (Vegan, GF)
The last few months of vigorous packing and perhaps even more vigorous who-packs-better-and-faster arguments were interspersed between Erik’s frequent suggestions that we rely on easy vegan overnight oats recipes to make things easier.
Naturally, I said “No.” because that’s how we roll. 😉 Then, I eventually came around to the idea of it… with one of my very favorite healthy breakfasts, Healthy Peanut Butter Overnight Oats and my mom’s oft-requested “dessert for breakfast, really?!?!” recipe, The Best Almond Joy Overnight Oats.
Now, we’ve kicked things up 10 tasty notches by combining peanut butter and bananas (YESSSS) with this Easy Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats recipe! This vegan overnight oats recipe tastes like vegan peanut butter banana breakfast cookies with just the right amount of delicious oat chewiness and creamy texture.

- *I prefer using coconut cream in overnight oats—it lends a thick, creamy and delicious texture. If using non-dairy yogurt, make sure to choose your favorite kind—the flavor will be very present. Also, use vanilla yogurt for a tasty addition!
- Storing Instructions: I do not recommend keeping this recipe for longer than 24 hours or so. The banana will ripen & spoil after the first morning/afternoon after keeping it overnight.
