These chocolate peanut butter overnight oats with yogurt are topped with homemade peanut butter cups! They’re an easy, healthy, gluten free and protein-packed make-ahead breakfast!
Just wanted you to pop in and letchu know that your newest protein-packed breakfast obsession is sponsored by my friends over at Powerful Yogurt!
You guys, it happened again: Monday showed up inside both of our VRY real-gotta-go-back-to-work lives.
Except, I can pinky-promise that you are not going to be ONE TINY BIT mad about the Monday-ness of today when your mouth munches through each wholesome fleck of tender oatmeal, that’s in a magical, heavenly swirl of protein-PACKED chocolate Greek yogurt and powdered peanut butter.
WAIT FOR IT…
WITH YOUR VERY OWN HEALTHY HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS. <—!!!! *happy dance*
I told you that you wouldn’t be mad. We’re BASICALLY talking about all of your breakfast dreams coming TRUE in bowl-of-oatmeal-form. It eating peanut butter and chocolate for breakfast (hi healthy high protein french toast and healthy chocolate peanut butter muffins we like you too!) is wrong, then I do not WANT TO BE RIGHT.
Kiiiinda totally in crazy-love over here. Don’t mind me.
I take that back.
DEFINITELY DO mind me, because I’m telling you that your breakfast needs to be THESE easy overnight oats tomorrow and, if you don’t heed my words, morning-you-of-the-future is going to be, liiike, VRY VRY deprived.
How to Make Overnight Oats
- You have to pick the right oats – steel cut or quick oats don’t work here. Overnight oats are made with rolled, old-fashioned oats. Add them into a bowl, along with any seasonings or spices you want!
- Next add in your liquid of choice – I like yogurt or almond milk. I fid it’s best to double the amount of oats with the liquid. So, if you use 1/2 cup of oats, use 1 cup of liquid. It might seem like a lot at first, but the oats really absorb a lot!
- Stir in any sweetener and sweeten to taste. I think liquid sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup work the best as they blend right into the other liquid.
- Stick them in the fridge for AT LEAST 6 hours.
How Long Can You Keep Overnight Oats In The Fridge?
I’ve made oats that last for up to a week in the fridge! It really depends on what you put in them. Things like fresh fruit go bad quicker, so those are best eaten within 2 or 3 days of making them!
Other reasons you need to mind me (besides the fact that I hold the recipe-keys to majorly delicious-real-food breakfast GOALS in the form of this overnight oatmeal recipe) are because I want to introduce you to a young company, that has seen a HYOOGE expansion in the past four years: Powerful Yogurt!
ORRRR as I like to call them “my newest protein drink obsession because – HELLO – Greek yogurt base ANDANDAND they’re made with natural ingredients (no weird sugar alcohols or junky fake stuff here peeps!) and they’re packing 20g of protein (<3 <3 <3) and only 160 calories!” If you’eve ever wondered how to increase protein intake, these are FOR YOU.
I know. Total run-on sentence. But you know me…run-on sentences are basically the love language of my soul.
But, really. Have you ever HEARD of a protein drink with a Greek yogurt base? I am totally THAT girl who used to always bring a container of the stuff in my purse, and then whip it out – spoon and all – at the most awkward of times in public places.
Don’t lie. You’ve been the “Greek Yogurt Girl” too.
Well, my muscle-building loving internet BFFS, we no longer have to turn on ninja-stealth mode when trying to make our protein portable – The Powerful Yogurt Drink just solved this very real-life problem.
I’m pretty sure you guys know how I feel about dessert-flavored overnight oatmeal. Judging by the fact that we’ve bonded over a few bowls of cookie dough overnight oats, funfetti protein overnight oats, strawberry cheesecake overnight oats and gluten free cinnamon roll overnight oats, you know it’s TRU LOVE.
I also just really dig peanut butter with oatmeal. Peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate or even a Banana Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe with Almond Milk. It’s all just SO GOOD.
ANDDDD, because I know that your mouths crave the VERY SAME things, I’m making a HIGHLY educated guess that you’re right on the board the oatmeal-love-train.
Especially when chocolate and peanut butter are involved.
Did we mention HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS?
I know, we did. Can’t help it. Obsessing.
Just imagine with me, if you will, this moment: you wake up still sleepy-eyed and HANGRY.
Not-able-to-think-yet-you forgets that, not only did you ALREADY MAKE BREAKFAST the night before (look at you being prepared!) you made a breakfast that is ALL real food and is jamming to the tune of gonna-keep-you-full-until-lunch healthy carbs and protein.
With a sweet burst of crispy-crunchy chocolate cups that are hugging rich, creamy peanut butter.
Can you imagine what morning you feels like when you REMEMBER all of that is ready and W-A-I-T-I-N-G?
That kinda happy life CAN BE YOURS MY FRIEND.
Reach out and grab the spoon.
Other Recipes You Might Like
For the oats:
For the peanut butter cups:
- 2 Tbsp Semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 5 tsp Natural peanut butter , divided (1 Tbl + 2 tsp)
- In a medium bowl, stir together the oats and peanut butter powder. Divide evenly between 2 cups.
- In a large liquid measuring cup, combine The Powerful Yogurt Drink and honey. Microwave just for 10-15 seconds until the honey melts. Be carefully not to cook too long, or you'll cook the yogurt. Whisk together until the honey is dissolved in the yogurt.
- Divide the yogurt/honey mixture evenly between the 2 cups. Place into the refrigerator and chill at least 6 hours - overnight.
- In a medium, microwave-safe bowl using half power and 30 second cooking intervals, melt the chocolate chips until smooth and melted.
- Place two mini muffin liners into 2 mini muffin pan cavities. Pour a small amount of melted chocolate into the bottom and smooth out. Divide 1 Tbsp of the peanut butter between each cavity, leaving space around the side. Place in the freezer until set, about 30 minutes.
- Once set, re-warm the chocolate chips to melt them. Then, fill up the muffin liners so that the peanut butter is covered. Place into the freezer to set while the oats set.
- Once the oats have sat long enough, chop up the peanut butter cups and divide them between the cups. Finally, drizzle with the remaining peanut butter.
