Peanut Butter Cup Protein Overnight Oats
Yields: 1 serving
 
This healthy breakfast tastes like peanut butter cup candies! It’s full of rich chocolate and sweet peanut butter flavors. The recipe is easily doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled to serve more, and the oats will last for at least 4 days if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • ¼ cup (25g) old-fashioned oats (gluten-free if necessary)
  • ½ cup (120g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup (60mL) nonfat milk
  • 1 tbsp (7g) peanut flour (I recommend Protein Plus)
  • 1 tbsp (5g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 16 drops vanilla crème stevia, or to taste
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a glass jar or plastic container with a tight-fitting lid, and stir until thoroughly combined. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 8 hours, before eating.
Notes: Overnight oats are meant to be eaten cold, straight from the refrigerator! No need to heat them up.

Instant oats (aka quick-cooking or one-minute oats) may be substituted for the old-fashioned oats. Do not substitute steel-cut oats; they do not soften enough.

To keep the oats clean eating friendly, the only ingredients in the peanut flour should be peanuts and salt (optional). Protein Plus is my favorite peanut flour. JIF peanut powder is also clean eating friendly, but PB2 is not since it contains sugar. PB2 will still work as a substitute.

Any sweetener may be substituted for the stevia. You’ll want the equivalent of about 4 teaspoons of granulated sugar.
