That is due to oil leaks on the engine body, evaporating after the engine get warmed and sucked thru the air filter in take.

So check engine oil leaks from the cylinder upper head gasket, tight firmly its bolts or replace the gasket.

Check also for oil leaks at the spark plugs.

Change your PCV valve. Should be a simple pull out and put a new one back in. on your valve cover gasket somewhere, will have a hose coming from it.
Do you have a line coming from a valve cover and going to the air filter? If you do, engine compression may be blowing by your valve stems into the valve cover which could force oil laden air up into the air filter area where the oil forms. Just a possibility. Take your oil filler cap off and see if you have any blowby coming out of the filler hole. This would indicate leaking valves or valve stems.
A bad pcv valve. You can get it for a few bucks and replace it in two minutes.
