Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

So, I’ve tried them before and about gagged when I made them with greek yogurt… way to tart even when I tried to sweeten them up.  I stumbled upon a recipe that used almond milk and thought I would give that a shot and while I’m at it why not make it like my favorite no bake cookies! Let me tell you.. these are dangerous! I made them in my salad jars so that’s why it doesn’t look like much, I’d recommend using a smaller mason jar to make them.  There’s a lot of freebies in there so this a way to get your chocolate fix without using a treat swap!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup dry oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp peanut butter
  1. I put the oatmeal in the mason jar first and then mix it with the unsweetened almond milk
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients and chill in fridge for at least 12 hours/overnight

NOTES:  I love this as a grab n’ go breakfast, or as a mid morning snack, I eat it right out of the jar.  I usually make in batches of 3 so I don’t know if they last longer than that.  I like to eat it cold but you could heat up in the microwave.
