Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats is a scrumptious and healthy breakfast full of hearty oats, healthy fats and plant protein. A meal prep dream to make at the beginning of the week and enjoy for days. Vegan and gluten free.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup quick oats (gluten-free as needed)
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
  • 1.5 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1.25 cups cashew milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (the one with just peanuts)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine: Using a 16 ounce jar (or larger) place all ingredients in jar, starting with oats, cocoa powder and chia seeds. Then add milk, peanut, maple syrup, vanilla extract and chocolate chips (if using). Stir ingredients using large spoon or seal jar with tight lid and shake until mixed. You can also stir everything into a medium sized bowl and cover tightly with lid.
  2. Chill: Place in fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  3. Serve: Divide into 2 jars or bowls. Enjoy cold, or warm as desired. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Notes

STORAGE – Store in an airtight container or mason jar in the fridge for 5 days. The oats will thicken over time, so you may need to add a splash of milk after days 2-3.

ENJOY WARM – Warm the oats in 30-second increments in the microwave or in a small saucepan on the stove until warmed through.
