Homecooked: Overnight Oats in a Jar


Oh, well not technically cooked – just prepared. ­čśÇ

It was in one of those nights when my body and mind refuse to visit dreamland that I quickly searched for something quick to whip using my available stash in the kitchen. I remembered I still have oats in our cupboard which remained unconsumed because well, we really are cereal than oat eaters. Why buy, you ask? Oh well, grocery blunders.

So! I marveled at the idea of an overnight oats I often see on the internet. You know, those days when you feel like living a healthier life. Hah, this happens frequently in our home – the “let’s be healthy today, pig out tomorrow” cycle. But, whatever floats our boat. Ha ha ha.

Mixing isn’t that hard, right? So the major errand for this recipe is just to mix all the ingredients. This is an easy peasy and super practical eats especially when your bed have been so good to you in the morning.


1/2 cup Rolled oats

1/2 – 1 cup Skimmed milk (depending on how thick you want it to be)

2 tablespoon Peanut butter

Banana or any desired topping



  1. Put rolled oats in the mason jar
  2. Pour the milk in parts until you achieve the desired thickness
  3. Add the peanut butter, mixing it thoroughly to equally spread it through out the mixture
  4. Refrigerate overnight
  5. In the morning, put on your desired toppings (in my case, i used bananas)
  6. Mix and eat!

There are infinite ways to come up with an overnight oats and I am trying other combinations, too! What is your version? Let us know!
