Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are the best!  They take all but what, 5 minutes to make?  And then you have them for a super quick breakfast in the morning.  Easy, healthy and yum!!


Not sure it gets much better than that.  And this chocolate peanut butter version is my favorite way to make them (at least for now!).  I'm always a big fan of chocolate...and peanut butter.  It's not often that you'll find an acceptable breakfast option with those flavor combos.  


So rich and peanut buttery.  The chocolate chips I added for a bit of crunch and they are completely optional.  I like to serve mine heated for about 45 seconds, with a added drizzle of maple syrup.  SO good!! 

5 servings

Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
pinch of salt
1 1/4 cup plain (or vanilla) Greek yogurt
1 2/3 cup skim milk (or almond milk)
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon cocoa powder 
2 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup 
semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional) 

In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, vanilla and salt.  Microwave for 10 seconds, stir, then 10 more seconds.  Add in the yogurt, milk, oats, cocoa powder and maple syrup.  Stir well and make sure the peanut butter is completely melted and mixed throughout.  Evenly distribute the mixture to 5 small mason jars or plastic storage containers (about 1 cup of the mixture per container).  Seal and place in the fridge overnight.  Oats will keep up to 5 days. 

To serve: heat in microwave for approximately 45 seconds, drizzle with additional maple syrup (if desired).

  1. I made this last night, and it was soooo good! I did have to add a little honey to mine, though. It seemed kind of bitter to me. But after I added it, it was amazing! I love that this recipe isn't super liquidy like other overnight oats I've tried. Tastes just like a Reese's too!
