As promised on my social media a few days ago, here is the recipe for my peanut butter overnight oats…
These take about five minutes to prepare and then you just stick them in the fridge overnight and they’ll be ready for you to eat the following morning. They seriously taste like a treat and I’m in love with them because they’re so quick and easy to grab in the mornings – no more rushing breakfast!
This recipe has an awesome balance of carbs, good fats, protein and it’s full of fibre too!
45g gluten-free rolled oats
10g chia seeds
35g peanut butter
120ml coconut milk (or you can use almond milk, or any other milk you like)
5ml agave nectar (optional)
Take a lidded jar, and mix the milk, chia seeds and peanut butter in it
Then add the oats and stir well so all ingredients are mixed in and all oats are covered in the liquid mixture
Add the agave nectar if you want to add some sweetness – I don’t always add it, but sometimes a little sweetness is nice
Seal the jar and place in the fridge overnight
Then in the morning, just take the jar out of the fridge and add some fruit and/or nuts – if you don’t have time it can obviously be eaten plain
In the photo below I made it in a larger jar so there was plenty of room for lots of yummy fruit, and I sprinkled half a scoop of Nutristrength whey protein isolate roasted cocoa on top. The protein powder mixed with the peanut butter flavoured oats made this whole thing taste of chocolate peanut butter, which is amazing!
