Clean Eating Peanut Butter and Chocolate Overnight Oats
Oh hey look, another overnight oats recipe! You did NOT see that coming, right?! It’s not like I’ve been sharing plenty of them recently huh. Just this apple pie one here. Oh and this PB & J here. Once again, I am SO late to food trends but seriously, I’m really digging this one. Overnight oats are the best! I see them as a blank canvas (= oats + milk) that you can dress up to make anything your tummy would make a little happy dance for. The possibilities are endless! And when yummy meets convenience, I’m all for it!!
So for this one, I used the king of all kings of combo: chocolate and peanut butter. Because…duh! chocolate and peanut butter!! And if you’re feeling a lil’ crazy, add a sliced banana on top and bam, just like that, you’re on the top of the world. Not too bad when you’ve just woken up and all you want to do is go back to bed. For all your difficult morning, overnight oats are your friends! (But they work too when the sun is shining and the birds singing, no worries). Enjoy!!

- 1/2 cup oats (your favorite kind)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or your favorite kind of milk)
- 1 tsp maple syrup or honey (more or less to taste)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp natural peanut butter (without added oil or sugar)
- 1 1/2 tbsp 70% cacao dark chocolate, chopped - see notes for substitutes
- 1/3 of a medium banana, sliced - optional, to serve
- Place all the ingredients except banana in a jar with a lid (I love this one!). Stir with a spoon until well combined. Taste and add more sweetener if needed. Close the lid and store in the fridge overnight. (If making more than one serving, I recommend combining everything in a medium bowl and then distribute in several jars - instead of mixing one by one).
- In the morning, stir oats again. At this point, you can add a bit more milk to taste. If using, place banana slices on top and serve. Enjoy!
You can also use mini chocolate chips instead of chopped dark chocolate but the sugar content is usually higher. This would change the nutrition facts and make this a little bit more of a treat.
Use dairy free chocolate to keep this vegan and dairy free.
