  • Mason jar or sealable bowl
  • spoon
  • knife
  • cutting board
  • Measuring Spoons


  • ½ cup dry oats like old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt flavored or plain
  • ½ small banana sliced or mashed
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon peanut butter powder
  • ½ cup frozen berries or other fruit
  • ½ cup milk or more if desired


  • Add ½ c old fashioned rolled oats to a mason jar or travel bowl, ½ c Greek yogurt, layer in fruit, peanut butter powder, and chia seeds (in no particular order). Cover oats with ½ c milk. 
  • Refrigerate at least overnight, or for up to 4 days. Grab in the morning, and enjoy hot or cold.



  • Old fashioned oats work best because they don't get mushy (like quick cook oats) and aren't too chewy (like steel cut oats).
  • Use whatever fresh or frozen fruit you have on hand like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, mango, apple, & banana.
  • Other great toppings: Fresh fruit, nut butter, flax seeds, chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, or jam.
  • If you have a narrow jar or bowl, add the milk in before the yogurt so you don't have to stir!
  • If yogurt blocks milk from soaking into the oats, secure a lid on top and shake until oats are submerged. Stir before eating.
