Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats have been my go-to morning snack at work. Not only are the so tasty, they are very filling and protein-packed. They are very easy to prepare and even easier to prep them for the whole week and grab on your way out the door.

Since I eat them at school, my students are always so curious what I am eating. One student even asked for all the ingredients, so she could make them over Thanksgiving Break. My boys (4 and 6 and my husband) have both put their mark of approval on this chocolatey, peanut butter treat.

Equipment:

Mason Jars: Mason jars are great for so many cooking and kitchen projects. I use them to make overnight oats and also dressing. These mason jars that I use every day are from Amazon.

Ingredients:

Greek Yogurt: I am picky about this one because Fage is the only one I use in my recipes, and I am familiar with the consistency and think that it is superior to most Greek yogurt. Plus Costco sells it, so I always have it in my fridge.

Almond Milk: My go-to almond milk is the Kirkland Signature Organic Vanilla Almond Milk from Costco as well.

Peanut Butter: I am not too picky about peanut butter because to be honest all peanut butter is full of flavor. I use what I have on hand whether it is from Costco or from the grocery store. Crunchy or creamy works for this recipe, so use whatever is your preference.

Quick Oats: I just use the store brand of oats because I feel like all oats are created equal. I have even used other types of oats for this recipe, and they are all very similar.

Chia Seed: The chia seed that I use in this recipe are on my Amazon Subscription order, and I order them every few months because I use chia in lots of breakfast recipes.

Flax Seed: Flax seed is a new addition to my diet in the last few years, and I love the extra boost of omega 3s and other nutrients. I order this flax seed on my Amazon Subscription order as well.

Honey: If you do not have honey on hand, the honey can be easily replaced with agave syrup or any other sweeteners of choice. It does not need a ton of sweetener but it definitely adds to the taste of the overnight oats.

Chocolate Protein Powder: I have used lots of different proteins and in this case, it does not matter what protein is used because I am not baking with it. The protein that I use is Vital Proteins, which I buy from either Costco or Amazon. You could actually use a liquid protein here and put less almond milk in it.
