These Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are now one of my favorite make-ahead style breakfasts. It’s super simple – just mix it up before going to bed, pop it in the fridge, and in the morning just open it and eat!
These Peanut Powder oats have the perfect consistency for this recipe. They did not disappoint on the easy-to-make or flavor fronts either. Between the protein found in the powder and the greek yogurt, you can rest assured that you will remain full for a good part of the day.
👩🍳 Why This Recipe Works
Beyond Easy: You only need five minutes and a handful of ingredients to make this.
Flavorful: The combination of oats, peanut butter powder, cinnamon, and honey is drool-worthy.
Customizable: You can always mix in extra ingredients to change the flavor too. So, you can enjoy some variety with your breakfast.
Not only does this taste incredible, but it is also simple to make. There isn’t a long list of ingredients you need either so that you can throw them together in minutes. Here are some of the main ingredients you will need:
Jif Peanut Powder: You can find this powder in the same aisle as the regular peanut butter. If your grocery store doesn’t have it there, look in the organic section as they sometimes hide it there. Other brands work perfectly well as a substitution.
What is Peanut Powder: This powder is simply roasted peanuts that are pressed to push out all excess oil. Then its is ground up into a powder. Because the oil is pressed out, the fat content is reduced. Two tablespoons of peanut butter runs about 190 calories. This powdered version will be 45 calories. Don’t worry, the taste is still fantastic, so you didn’t sacrifice flavor for that reduction.
Old Fashioned Oats: The oats will be the bulk of the ingredients and will keep you filled up and satisfied. Be sure to use old fashioned instead of minute oats.
Vanilla Greek Yogurt & Milk: You need to have some kind of liquid for the oats to absorb and become softer. Using yogurt and milk together gives a fantastic texture.
Chia Seeds: There are so many reasons to add chia seeds. They are packed with fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium, and zinc!
Step One: Pour the first five ingredients into a mason jar (or lidded container of your choice). Add in milk and stir well until the peanut powder is well incorporated into the mixture and all of the ingredients are well combined.
Step Two: Pour in honey and vanilla greek yogurt and mix with the oat mixture.
Step Three: Top with a layer of mini chocolate chips. Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight.
Step Four: And in the morning, you’ll have this:
📌 Expert Tips
- This recipe provides a creamy overnight oats with a great consistency, and just a hint of sweetness. Adjust the sweetness.
- If you wanted to make things even easier, mix together a couple of these jars a few days ahead of time just using the fist five ingredients since they’re all dry and shelf-stable. The night before, just mix in the milk, yogurt, honey and chocolate chips!
- Swap in vanilla yogurt for the vanilla greek yogurt.
- Leave the yogurt out altogether – if you do this, it won’t have as creamy of consistency and I suggest adding a bit more honey for sweetness.
- Leave out the chocolate chips if you’d like, since they’re just a topping. But having the chocolate chips makes it almost dessert-like, so my vote is for keeping them in!
- If you decide to leave out the yogurt, you’ll have more room in your jar – adding in a few banana slices is a great idea!
- Use other peanut butter powders in place of the Jif brand.
There is a variety of answers when it comes to how healthy overnight oats are. They are loaded with fiber from the oats, but some of the ingredients you add-in may not be healthy.
This particular recipe is loaded with healthy ingredients, but other recipes are filled with candy and other sugary ingredients. So, keep in mind what you are adding to them that you pick healthy items.
The fantastic thing about overnight oats is that they can be eaten cold, straight out of the fridge. It’s a wonderful breakfast!
Additionally, you can warm them up. Simply place them in the microwave for 30 seconds or so until they are warmed up.
They actually last in the fridge for 4-5 days! This is ideal for meal planning and will save you loads of time throughout the week.
