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 an easy breakfast to be ready as soon as you wake up. Enter: Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats!
These peanut butter 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
Speaking of those flavor combinations…I chose one of my favorites for this recipe. If you’ve been around my blog, you’re likely not surprised to see chocolate and peanut butter! It’s my go-to and never goes me wrong.
Once you’ve tried a few batches of these vegan chocolate overnight oats and are ready for a new breakfast? Try out these Superfood Overnight Oats with Berry Chia Jam, these Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats, or these Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats.
I first made a batch of these Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats to leave for my boyfriend 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
This recipe is perfect for the back-to-school season when you need QUICK breakfasts that can be ready in a flash, or made in jars to be eaten in the car, or at your desk. 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!!

How many days will this recipe last in the fridge? Could I prep these for the whole week?
Hi Olivia, it’s never lasted longer than 3 to 4 days in my house, but it should be totally fine to prep on Sunday for the week ahead. Enjoy!
