Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats

Peanut Butter? Check. Chocolate? Check. Both sneaking their way into a healthy breakfast combo good enough to taste like a Reeces? Check, check.

My friend Natalie is a smokin’ hot mama and Crossfit babe, who eats super clean, following a diet similar to Paleo. She always posts pictures of her overnight oats in an almost-empty peanut butter jar, and I was inspired to FINALLY try my own first overnight oat recipe (ever!) I know, a total disgrace! I’m just not a huuuuuge oatmeal fan because of the texture, but holy sh&^, this recipe was everything. A total experiment from what I had in my pantry, will be here to stay.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, or combo of steel cut oats + rolled oats
  • An almost-empty peanut butter jar (or a tablespoon of peanut butter)
  • 1/2-1 cup coconut, cashew, or almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Optional: add 1 tablespoon cacao nibs or
  • (In the AM): Sliced bananas

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add rolled oats to jar of peanut butter
  2. Add remaining dry ingredients
  3. Pour milk overtop
  4. Put lid back on PB jar and shake up, mixing well
  5. Put jar in fridge and let sit overnight
  6. In the morning, open lid and enjoy right out of the jar! Stir oats together to mix flavors. Or scoop out oats mixture into bowl and stir.
  7. Optional: Add sliced bananas on top and/or drizzle with raw, local honey
