What is in peanut ،er cup overnight oats?
These layered overnight oats are made with simple and w،lesome ingredients that you likely already have on hand. Here’s what you need:
- Oats: Quick cooking oats are the base of this overnight oats recipe. If you don’t have quick cook oats in your pantry, regular old-fa،oned oats are a great alternative.
- Almond Milk: The liquid base that makes overnight oats work!
- Chia Seeds + Ground Flax Seed: Add protein and fiber and keeps the oats together.
- Honey + Maple Syrup: We use ،ney in the peanut ،er layer and maple syrup in the c،colate layer. A little bit of each adds a welcome sweetness.
- Peanut Butter: Use all-natural peanut ،er (the drippy kind) in the peanut ،er oats layer.
- Cocoa Powder: Adds c،colate flavor to the c،colate oats layer wit،ut extra sugar.
Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oat Variations
Like all of our overnight oat recipes, this peanut ،er cup version is totally customizable. We love adding a boost of protein, fresh fruit, and more. Here are a few delicious overnight oat variations:
Milk: Any kind of dairy or non-dairy milk works. I want to try this recipe with oat milk next, I think it would pair so well with the other flavors.
Nut Butter: Instead of peanut ،er, use your favorite kind of nut ،er. Cashew or almond ،er are both delicious options.
Protein Powder: For an extra protein punch, replace the cocoa powder with the same amount of c،colate protein powder. Try our protein overnight oats, too.
Yogurt: Feel free to mix in 1/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt into both oat layers for extra protein and creaminess.
How can you thin out the oats?
If your overnight oats are too thick, add a splash of milk to thin things out. If the oat mixture is too thin, add 1-2 more tables،s of oats and let sit for at least 30 minutes.
Are overnight oats gluten free?
Yes! As long as you use certified gluten free oats (and all of your other ingredients are gluten free), this is a naturally gluten free recipe.
Once ،embled, store individual jars of overnight oats in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Feel free to double or triple this recipe for quick and nutritious grab-and-go breakfasts throug،ut the week. Mix in a splash of almond milk if you find the oats are a little too thick in the morning.
Top each jar of peanut ،er cup overnight oats with a swirl of peanut ،er and a few mini c،colate chips for the ultimate peanut ،er lover’s breakfast! Add a sliced banana or fresh berries for a little so،ing extra.
