I used to LOVE overnight oats when I was in college! They were super easy to prep in a small, honestly quite shitty kitchen- and better yet, they were cheap to make! Over the years I have elevated my oatmeal game, and this recipe is one of the best! I am a sucker for the classic chocolate peanut butter combination! I hope you enjoy!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
For the Oatmeal:
1 cup oatmeal
3 scoops chocolate protein powder (I used the Nature's Promise Grass Fed Whey)
2 scoops Vital Proteins collagen powder (you could use any collagen powder)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 bottle Fairlife protein milk, chocolate flavor (you could use any milk you wanted!)
For the Peanut Butter Sauce:
3 tbsp PB2 powdered peanut butter
1 scoop Vital Proteins collagen powder
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp mini chocolate chips
Blend your oats in a blender or a food processor until smooth and evenly textured. In a glass bowl add blended oats, protein powder, collagen, cinnamon, vanilla and protein milk. Mix well. Set aside.
In a separate small bowl, combine peanut butter powder, collagen and water. Mix well until you get a slightly runny peanut butter sauce! You can add more water if you want it to be thinner.
In 4 small containers (I use the small mason jars) evenly distribute oat mixture. Top each with your peanut butter sauce and chocolate chips.
Cover and place in fridge for minimum of 2 hours. They will last you all week!
I eat these cold, but you could totally warm them up in the microwave for 30 seconds to get a warm, easy breakfast! They are super portable and a great meal prep idea! You could also adjust the toppings and add berries or banana slices! Enjoy!!
