Peanut Butter Overnight Oats: I love a good “No-Recipe” recipe that comes together in 2 minutes or less! These overnight oats are so easy to prepare in the evening and enjoy the next morning for an effortless breakfast. You can even take them on the go!
what’s in these peanut butter overnight oats?
Oats: The base of overnight oats is obviously oats! 🙂 The oats give natural energy from the carbohydrates as well as fiber.
Greek Yogurt: Greek yogurt gives a creamy texture and adds protein. If you are dairy-free, you can always substitute a dairy-free yogurt of your choice, or even more almond milk.
Almond Milk: Added liquid to absorb the oats and chia seeds.
Pure Maple Syrup: for a touch of natural sweetness.
Chia Seeds: For more fiber. The chia seeds will expand when added to liquid so if needed, add more almond milk.
Cinnamon: For flavor and warmth.
Raisins: For texture and fun (yes, I did just call raisins “fun”)
Peanut Butter: The star of the show here, but add to your own discretion. Some peanut like more, some people like less! Measure with your heart 🙂
what are overnight oats?
If you’re unfamiliar with overnight oats, they’re simply oats soaked overnight in milk or yogurt, breaking down the starch to give the oats the same texture as cooking them. Overnight oats are served cold and can be made with so many different flavors. They’re so simple, and all you need to do is mix the ingredients together, put them in a mason jar or bowl, and put them in the fridge! In the morning, you have a delicious, filling breakfast without having to cook a single thing!
how do I need to warm my peanut butter overnight oats?
No, you do not need to warm the peanut butter overnight oats when eating. These are typically served chilled. I wouldn’t recommend warming them, especially if you add greek yogurt. However if you didn’t use greek yogurt and you prefer them to be warm, go for it! Simply heat them in the microwave in a microwave safe container.
