I’m pretty sure overnight oats are old news for most people. Not for me though! I’ve been wanting to make myself a batch for some time now but never quite got around to it. Excuses, excuses…I know! Well, I finally bit the bullet and prepared a bowl last night, stuck it in the fridge to “gel” together, and gobbled it all up this morning. All I can say is, I’m kind of obsessed with my creation. It tasted like a peanut butter cup. A healthy one at that!
Trust me when I say, this tasted a bajillion times better then it looked! It was super chocolately and packed in quite a bit of protein. Oh how I love filling breakfasts!
And the best thing about overnight oats is that you can mix and match the ingredients to your heart’s content.
Chocolately Protein Overnight Oats
1/2 cup quick cup oats
1 scoop Chocolate Sunwarrior protein powder
3/4 tablespoon dark chocolate cocoa powder
1 tablespoon chia seeds
3/4 of a medium banana (cut into super small pieces)
3/4 cup skim milk
1 scoop peanut butter
Mix everything together in a bowl until combined. Refrigerate overnight. Enjoy in the morning with a scoop of PB.
MMM MMM GOOD! (I promise!)
Are you a fan of overnight oats? What method do you use to prepare your bowl?

I am partial to a good bowl of oats but in winter, eating them hot sounds a lot more appealing. I DO love the convenience of having breakfast ready though and the combination of chocolate and peanut butter has me drooling right now lol.
Think I might give it a go tomorrow 🙂
What did you do with the other 1/4 of the banana?! 🙂
Put it in the freezer of course! 🙂
WOW that looks delicious- I can only imagine what it would be like in a near-empty PB jar! I love overnight oats, especially when I know that my mornings will be rushed and I have to eat breakfast at work! Have you tried making them with yogurt? I do 1/3 cup yog and 1/3 cup milk and boy is it SO creamy!
looks YUMMY !
i have never tried overnight oats…but i think i will now !
I love overnight oats! Mine have never tasted like a peanut butter cup, though, so I’ll have to try your concoction!
