Overnight Toasted Peanut Butter Oats

Overnight toasted peanut butter oats have got to be the simplest and quickest breakfast in all the land!

You have a couple minutes prep the night before, pop them in the fridge and then BAM…breakfast.

I don’t know about you, but during the summers I have less time. Weird, but somehow true. So anything I can do to speed up my mornings, I am all for. Overnight oats are a complete life saver. And the fact that they are made and stored in mason jars, make them uber portable.

Scroll down to the bottom for the Overnight Toasted Peanut Butter Oats Recipe.

But in the meantime, I want to share a few morning hacks that make my life a little easier and a few super quick morning breakfasts that include my newest obsessions by Jif…their new Maple and Cinnamon Peanut Butter Spreads. (You can find them in grocery stores nationwide.)

By adding Jif to your morning recipes, you can add 7 grams of protein per serving.

This has got to be my favorite breakfasts from when I was a kid…Peanut butter and banana toast.
This new Jif Cinnamon Peanut Butter Spread just put it over the top. Quick and delish.


Some people may find this next morning hack a bit strange, but Brush your teeth in the shower!!!
This way, you don’t have to get your tooth paste and toothbrush out and put it back away (they just live in the shower) AND you don’t have to clean the sink of leftover toothpaste! It’s a win win!


The next one is a time saver AND a money saver. Instead of purchasing individual containers of flavored yogurts, buy a larger container and portion it out into single serving cups and flavor them yourself. Do several at a time so you have a quick breakfast ready to go.
The one pictured is plain Greek Yogurt with Jif Maple Peanut Butter Spread, a pinch of brown sugar and some slivered almonds. YUM

I can come up with EVERY excuse in the book not to exercise. One super helpful hack I have to exercising is to get your clothes out the night before and have them laying out in the morning.


Morning smoothies are the best. You can make your morning a little bit easier if you have pre-portioned smoothie packets already frozen. I have enough for at least 2 weeks worth of smoothies in my freezer at all times. For some added protein, I like to add a scoop of Jif Maple Peanut Butter Spread. YUMMMMMM


I literally can’t survive without my morning cup of coffee. I can not speak to anyone in my house until I have had my first couple of sips. I’m not joking people. NO words come out of my mouth.
Set up your coffee station the night before to make your morning a little less grumpy!!


Who says peanut butter and jelly is reserved for the lunchbox. You can have a quick and satisfying breakfast by making a “breakfast peanut butter and jelly”. Toast up a whole grain English muffin, spread fruit spread and some Jif Cinnamon Peanut Butter Spread. Quick and delicious!

I hope you have enjoyed some of my morning hacks.
I would love to hear some of yours!!!
