Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

EASY peanut butter overnight oats made with just 5 ingredients and 5 minutes prep time. Naturally sweetened, vegan, gluten-free, and so delicious.

Yields: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup  unsweetened plain or vanilla almond milk
  • 4 Tbsp  chia seeds (Aldi carries these for a great price)
  • 8 Tbsp  natural salted peanut butter or almond butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 4 Tbsp  maple syrup (or sub coconut sugar, organic brown sugar, honey or stevia to taste)
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats (or regular)

Optional

  • Sliced banana
  • strawberries
  • raspberries
  • blueberries
  • Mini Chocolate chips
  • Granola

Directions:

  1. In 4 mason jars or small bowls, divide almond milk, chia seeds, peanut butter, and maple syrup (or other sweetener) evenly and stir with a spoon to combine.
  2. The peanut butter doesn’t need to be completely mixed with the almond milk (doing so leaves swirls of peanut butter to enjoy the next day).
  3. Divide the 1 cups of oats evenly and add to the peanut butter mixture and stir a few more times.
  4. Then press down with a spoon to ensure all oats have been moistened and are immersed in almond milk.
  5. Cover securely with a lid or plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 6 hours).
  6. The next day, open and enjoy as is or garnish with desired toppings (see options above).
  7. Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days, though best within the first 12-24 hours.
