Okay, we love a good chocolate & peanut butter for breakfast moment over here — see: Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal & Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl. But sometimes you want breakfast to be ready as soon as you wake up. Enter: Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats!

Overnight oats are great for so many reasons. Here are just a few of the reasons why I love them:

  • Easy to prep in just 5 minutes
  • You can eat it straight out of the fridge or warm it up in the microwave if you prefer
  • Always gluten-free (as long as you use gluten-free oats)
  • You can easily make it dairy-free/vegan by using a dairy-free milk
  • Unlimited flavors combinations
  • The perfect vessel for ALL the toppings

I first made a batch of these Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats to leave for my boyfriend, Kyle, while I was away on vacation. He demolished the whole batch and requested more when I got back. A few more batches later and it was time to share! Thankfully, they’re super easy to make with just a few nutritious ingredients.

How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats:

  1. Mix together all of your ingredients! Simply stir together the gluten-free oats, chia seeds, almond milk, peanut butter, cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. I make this easy on myself and mix everything together in a glass food storage container that doubles as storage. 
  2. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until the oats have absorbed all of the liquid. I usually prep it in the evening and let everything absorb overnight.
  3. Stir, spoon into your bowl, and top with garnishes! I like topping my oats with banana slices, extra peanut butter, and hemp/chia seeds. Berries and this Easy Chocolate Granola are great toppings too.

You can also substitute the peanut butter for any other of your favorite nut or seed butter in these Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats. Enjoy!!
