I have been an oatmeal eater for a long, long time and eat them every.single.day. For breakfast and usually as my last snack of the day. (yep I have a healthy bedtime snack every night)
But it wasn’t until this past December that I first but peanut butter in my oatmeal. Let me tell you, it was an ah-ha moment for me! A lick my bowl moment. So it goes without saying that my favorite overnight oats to make is Peanut Butter Raisin (recipe below). It’s like having an oatmeal cookie for breakfast.
The wonderful thing about overnight oats is their versatility too. You can mix in any of your favorite ingredients and change it up as much as you’d like.
