These decadent, pudding-like chocolate peanut butter overnight oats feel like a treat. This is thanks to the rich chocolate and peanut butter flavor in every bite. There are even little speckles of chocolate chips for added indulgence. But, guess what? These oats are nutritious and packed with 23 grams of protein per serving.

Overnight oats are the ideal make-ahead breakfast for busy mornings. This grab-and-go breakfast is perfect for meal prep. This goes for baked oatmeal too like my Strawberry Baked Oatmeal and Protein Baked Oatmeal with Chocolate Chunks.

This simple recipe uses cocoa powder and peanut butter powder for the classic chocolate-peanut butter combo. While these creamy, chocolaty oats taste like a peanut butter cup, they are not overly sweet. Completely customizable for diet and taste preferences, this nutrient-dense breakfast is one you will want to make again and again.

  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder (or Pb2)
  • Oat Milk (or milk of choice)
  • Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Optional: Maple Syrup (for sweetener)
