I just got back from seeing a concert out of town. As usual, I packed food for myself, in case there wasn’t much available for someone on a gluten free vegan diet. I packed this Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats for my breakfast. It was the first time that I packed an overnight oats. Usually, I bring a protein bar or smoothie. After having overnight oats, I decided it would be my new go-to breakfast for traveling.
I love how easy to make and filling overnight oats are. I wasn’t hungry for hours. Even with my protein packed smoothies, I am usually hungry a couple of hours later. Not with this! I added chia seeds for even more protein and fiber. Maybe I need to start adding chia seeds to my smoothies…
For photo purposes, I made this in a 12 oz. jar, then transferred it to an 8 oz. mason jar. I don’t recommend making it in an 8 oz. jar, because it is a bit too crowded for this, and makes stirring difficult.
If you like chocolate and peanut butter as much as I do, you will love this! You can swap out the cacao powder for cocoa powder, if you need to. I personally love cacao powder and cacao nibs because they are so good for you. Cacao nibs are more bitter than dark chocolate, but added to an overnight oats like this, they blend in nicely.
