Mix well: Thoroughly mix the oats, liquid, and peanut butter together to ensure that everything is evenly distributed and the oats are fully coated.
Let it sit overnight: Allow the mixture to sit in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 4-6 hours) to allow the oats to absorb the liquid and become creamy. If you prefer a warmer breakfast, you can microwave the oats for 30 seconds to 1 minute before serving.
