Peanut butter and chocolate overnight oats
N.B. This blog is also available in Finnish and you’ll find it here
Peanut butter and chocolate, what a perfect combination! This delicious and filling sweet treat can be thrown together in few minutes for a quick grab and go breakfast, and if you make a bigger batch, you can enjoy it throughout the week.
About the powdered peanut butter; It’s only 50 calories for 2 tablespoons compared to 200 calories for two tablespoons of regular peanut butter, so it comes with fewer calories but is still at least as yummy as the original. Nowadays many brands offer this delicacy, mine was from MyProtein this time. Of course, if you don’t have powdered peanut butter, you can always use that real stuff 😛 .
2.5 dl (gluten free) rolled oats
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp chia seeds
2-3 tbsp powdered peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp honey, maple syrup or some other sweetener
3 dl milk of your choice; almond, cashew, soy, rice… (add a little bit more if you don’t like thick oats)
Optional: nuts, berries, banana coins, cacao nibs, nut butter, coconut flakes…
• In a medium bowl, combine the milk of your choice, powdered peanut butter, cacao powder, chia seeds, honey and vanilla extract. Whisk together until well incorporated.
• Stir in rolled oats until all ingredients are combined.
• Divide oats between two (glass) jars, fasten the lids and refrigerate at least 6 hours or preferably overnight.
• In the morning, give it a stir, sprinkle with your favorite toppings, dig in and enjoy!
