So my sister-in-law Jenn, who you may or may not know as MrsCasual on Instagram, introduced me to food blogger @rachlmansfield, and we obsess over her recipes on the daily. We finally attempted to make her overnight oats recipe… and holy crap, they were insane.
We decided to twist her recipe a little bit to make it larger and more delicious. The result was phenomenal, peanut buttery, and addicting (and not bad for you at all!).
This healthy and easy dark chocolate peanut butter overnight oats recipe takes just 5 MINUTES and 2 STEPS to prepare! All you have to do is leave it in the fridge for a few hours (or overnight until you’re ready to eat it) and you have an insanely yummy, protein-packed breakfast ready to go in the morning.
Here’s what you’ll need…
1 cup oats
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons peanut butter (or almond butter — I’m sure all nut butters will taste great)
2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips/chunks
** use organic/whole grain/preservative-free ingredients if possible!
Once you have everything, do this…
1. Throw all of the ingredients in a mason jar, and stir so everything is evenly distributed. Use only 1 tablespoon of dark chocolate chips/chunks in the recipe. Top stirred ingredients with the remaining tablespoon.
2. Screw the lid on tight, and place the mason jar in the fridge for 3-5+ hours.
That’s it! You’re done! You’re officially on your way to eating your new favorite breakfast or snack.
This is what mine looked like after I already had some and decided to stop to take a picture.
