Chocolate Covered Banana Oats

You know what time it is…


I couldn’t WAIT to eat my breakfast this morning :)

I was so excited about this jar that I checked it a few times yesterday, just to make sure it was at the right level. Not kidding.


For most of my oats-in-a-jar breakfasts, I try to keep my oatmeal simple – I just want to taste all that melty peanut butter in every bite!


The best jars to make this in are ones that still have streaks of pb all down the sides of the jar, because you get a little flavor in every spoonful.


Today’s mix:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • cinnamon

After I cook the oatmeal in the microwave, I let it cool for a minute and then load it into the jar.


Grab a spoon and dig in :)

This and some coffee with my new coconut milk creamer? Friday is off to a great start!


What’s your favorite chocolate-covered fruit?

Strawberries? Bananas? Dried fruit?

I love chocolate-dipped strawberries, but I think I need to try bananas again. I just have memories of these frozen chocolate-dipped bananas that my Aunt Rose had one summer at her house, and I did not like them. I’m not sure what it was, but they tasted so strange. Maybe I should try making my own?

  1. Great breakfast! I think it’s a tie between bananas and strawberries for me….

    Happy Friday, Brandi! :)

  2. I love strawberries but I think bananas are the best. They are just so creamy!

  3. Wow looks great–I’d have to say my favorite chocolate covered fruit would be banana, so this would be right up my alley! :-)

  4. I’m a purist for chocolate covered raisins.

  5. I haven’t had them in years, but I used to love chocolate covered bananas. I always liked chocolate covered raisins too (I think they were called Raisinettes?)

  6. For me it’s a tie between strawberries and bananas!

  7. I need to buy some of that peanut butter! I keep resisting because I have so many random half-empty jars of nut butter in my house, but this looks too good to pass up.

    Whenever I get chocolate fondue, my favorite dipper is always the pineapple. Mmmmm.

  8. Oh my gosh Dark Chocolate Dreams! :D That had to be one awesome jar of oats.

    It’s a tie between strawberries and banana for favorite chocolate dipped food. Ohhh, but pretzels are great too. I use to buy those by the bag and easily eat me way through them in an a matter of minutes.

  9. How amazing is DCD?! And I know this is weird but I actually don’t like chocolate covered fruit! I love both of those things, just separately :)

  10. i love strawberries of course. but i’ve been on a banana kick as of late! :) mmmmmmmmm….

  11. Strawberries are my favorite, but cherries are also up there!

  12. OH YUM. OIAJ is like the best thing in the entire world.. so amazing. And you did it right girl, you still have plenty of PB!
    Chocolate covered strawberries all the way! But really, I’ll eat almost anything if it’s covered in chocolate… I’m not too picky ;)

  13. That looks SO GOOD.

    I love chocolate covered raspberries.

  14. Chocolate covered strawberries, chilled are my favourites. So good. But honestly, cover anything in chocolate and I’ll eat it :)

    Your breakfast looks baller lady!

  15. Brandi – I am so sorry you didn’t win the Stonyfield barn storming thing – I think I voted 3 times a day except for one day!!

    Hugs! I have that brand of spicy peanut butter – love it!

  17. Bananas dipped in dark chocolate fondue is my FAV!!!! Mmmm…..

  18. You know, I’m a OIAJ virgin. This seems like it needs to be remedied and STAT.

    Strawberries are my favorites to dip, although I LOVE making chocolate covered orange peel! I’m actually working on a post with the recipe for the near future!
