Protein rich breakfast option. Overnight oats
I have been trying to eat more protein and it can be tricky to do so in the morning. By having all of the heavy lifting done, there really isn’t an excuse. The protein is coming from natural sources here too. Old fashioned oats, greek yogurt, chai seeds, natural peanut butter, and milk. This chocolate peanut butter overnight oats will keep you rocking all day!
Overnight oats love Old Fashioned oats
Make sure you are using old fashioned oats as they are able to absorb the liquid without totally disintegrating. Quick oats aren’t ideal for this recipes and wouldn’t have the same level of nutrition as the old fashioned oats.
Let’s breakdown the ingredients
Old Fashioned oats – These are key and packed with nutrition.
Chia seeds – This superfood packs an amazing amount of protein and other nutrients into its small little body. Don’t skip these!
Cocoa powder – this gives us that delicious chocolate flavour
Cinnamon – just a hint for flavour
Natural peanut butter – lots of energy and protein
Milk- Any kind will do the trick! I used whole milk
Greek yogurt – One my favourite ingredients. Creamy, rich, and so nutritious
Maple syrup – Just for a hint of sweetness.
Chocolate chips – Optional.. But come on!I like to serve this in mason jars, but you can just mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and let them sit overnight.
