Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Overnight Oats

An empty peanut butter jar could not have come at a better time. I have been insanely
busy with classes, obvious from my lack of posting, and have hardly had time to prepare food. I had finished off one of my absolute favorite peanut butters, Peanut Butter & Co Cinnamon Raisin Swirl (a must try if you have not tried it!).

I am all about easy meals so instead of tossing the jar I made overnight oats in it. The jar was not entirely empty, it still had about a tablespoon of peanut buttery goodness left in it, which is perfect for overnight oats.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Overnight Oats
  • 1 almost empty peanut butter jar, about a tablespoon of peanut butter left
  • 1/3 cup gf oats
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons dannon light and fit vanilla greek yogurt, can omit
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon raisins
  • 1/2 honeycrisp apple cut into chunks

Place everything inside the jar. Seal the lid and shake it up. 

Refrigerate overnight. Shake it up again before eating. 

Instead of having it for breakfast I grabbed it as a lunch as I headed out the door for classes. I also added in 1/2 of a small banana. Allowing the oats to soak overnight allows them to really absorb the flavor of the peanut butter and cinnamon.


  1. I really need to get on this whole thing of overnight oats in peanut butter jars! I'm almost done with one of my Jif whip maple brown sugars (yes, I have multiple haha!) and if I can remember I want to make overnight oats with it! I've never tried it but this sounds awesome, I hope everything is going well with you my dear! Have a great Monday :)

    1. I have multiple maple brown sugar whips too! I stocked up on them so I can have it throughout the year, I'm a peanut butter hoarder lol! You definitely should try it, the oats really soak up the flavor and it's fantastic! Thank you so much for your sweet comment, hope you're having a fantastic weekend :)
