Recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Post by Olivia Martino, Registered Dietitian and Owner, Nourish Northwest

If you haven’t yet gotten on the overnight oats bandwagon, then I don’t know what you’re waiting for! Overnight oats are EASY, require no morning prep and most importantly are so delicious.  There are so many ways that you can flavor them and I usually just keep it simple with milk, oats, chia seeds and a bit of sweetener.  I decided to try something this time that felt like a little more of a treat! Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats

Serves: 2

adapted from

  • 1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk 
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp natural salted peanut butter or almond butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 2 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 banana sliced
  • 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts

In a quart size jar or bowl, pour in milk, chia, peanut butter, cacao and maple syrup.  Stir to combine and break up peanut butter (if some chunks remain, that’s ok!).  Add oats and stir or cover and shake to combine.  Let sit in the fridge for 4-6 hours or overnight.  

In the morning, divide into bowls and top with sliced bananas and walnuts or enjoy straight from the jar!
