These chocolate peanut butter overnight oats are seriously tasty and perfect for the mornings. You cannot go wrong with these because they are so easy to prep and will taste fresh all week.
These overnight oats consist of a creamy chocolatey layer, topped up with smooth peanut butter and fresh fruit. Ensure you get a big spoonful because all the flavours combined are very tasty.
Like most overnight oat recipes, this is totally satisfying and refreshing, which you can play around with whether you want extra protein or more fruits.
How to make chocolate overnight oats with peanut butter
Rolled Oats: The old-fashioned rolled oats are ideal for this type of overnight oat recipe.
Cocoa Powder: Plenty of variations but ultimately we want it to be chocolatey.
Almond Milk: You can use any milk or plant-based milk but almond milk does work best with this recipe due to the nutty flavour.
Peanut Butter: I used smooth peanut butter to sit on top of the oats.
Yogurt: Try to use greek or plain yogurt as this makes it more creamier, and adds in extra protein.
Honey: For the sweetener I used honey but you can use maple syrup or a low-carb variation.
Fresh Fruit: These overnight oats were topped up with fresh blueberries and strawberries.
- Protein Powder
Add to your mixing bowl the rolled oats, cocoa powder, yogurt, almond milk and honey.
Whisk together and it should look like this.
Fill your mason jar half way up to allow room for the peanut butter and fruit.
Layer the oats with a few spoons of peanut butter and the fresh fruit.
These will keep well in the fridge up to 4-5 days which makes it perfect for your meal prep breakfast or snack. You can freeze these up to 3 months but only freeze the bottom layer, and add the peanut butter and fruit on the day of serving.

For the ingredients which I used, each of my overnight oats worked out to be around 311 calories which leaves room for me to add in nuts, seeds or protein powder to make this more filling. Your results may vary as it depends on the ingredients and brand you will use. Using small mason jars helps with portion control and to keep the calories low.
