I have trained my children to adore oatmeal. I always make it with a bit of a twist to it, so they think it taste like cookie dough instead of porridge. My kids can’t get enough of this easy peanut butter banana overnight oatmeal recipe.


I make it often when they are sick. I would be lying if I said I only made it when they weren’t feeling well. We eat it often. I prepare it the night before and put a dollop of whipped cream and sliced bananas on top. They seem to think it’s a bit of a thrill to stir it themselves, so of course, I let them.

You can be as creative as you want with the sweetener and fruit which makes this recipe so versatile for any family.
