These vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are perfect for traveling. They fill you up for hours and they are portable.
Perfect For Traveling
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 vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats in a jar for my breakfast. It was the first time that I packed 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.
Since this recipe, I made a Mocha Almond Overnight Oats, which is great because you get your breakfast and coffee all in one! It is easy to make in a hotel room. You just bring the dry ingredients, and add the complimentary coffee.
Easy and Filling
I love how easy to make and filling overnight oats are. I wasn't hungry for hours after eating this.
That is important when you are on a road trip. Many times I fill up on home fries and / or a fruit bowl at a restaurant. Then, I crash an hour or two later. Talk about carb overload!
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.

How Long Do Overnight Oats Need to Soak?
Place them in the fridge for a minimum of 3-4 hours up to 72 hours.
- You may want more liquid than I've listed. Start with the amount shown and check the consistency in the morning to see if you want more after it's been absorbed.
- Add the cacao nibs or chocolate chips right before you eat it.
- If you try this with vegan yogurt or coconut milk you may want more liquid because it will make the oats thick and dense.

These overnight oats will last up to 3 days in the fridge.
