Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats (Vegan and Gluten-Free!) Ingredients: 1 large ripe banana, mashed (about ½ cup) ¼ cup creamy peanut butter 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats (Do not use quick cooking oats!) 1 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional) ½ teaspoon vanilla extract ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon light agave or honey (You may use more if you like sweeter oatmeal. Duh.) Optional Toppings: Sliced Bananas Drizzle of Agave, Maple Syrup or Honey Cinnamon Dark chocolate shavings or chips Coconut shavings Preparing your Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats: -In a medium bowl, mash your banana with a fork. -Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl. -Mix until well combined. (Really mix, people! The peanut butter needs to be evenly distributed, and this may require a little extra elbow grease.) -Pour the mixture into two airtight containers. (Yes, you can just cover the mixing bowl tightly with plastic wrap. I prefer to refrigerate individual servings, but you do what you have to.) -Refrigerate the oats for at least 3 hours or overnight. -When ready to eat, give the oats a good stir. -Add toppings of your choice and get after it.
