Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup per serving
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or sub in preferred milk)
  • 2 tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1 very ripe banana mashed
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup or vanilla protein powder to sweeten optional
  • Toppings of your choice i.e. a few sliced bananas, drizzle of peanut butter, dark chocolate chips or sprinkle of unsweetened coconut (optional)

Instructions

  • Divide the oats, cocoa powder, chia seeds and salt between two mason jars or bowls. Give it a quick stir to combine. 
  • Next divide the almond milk, peanut butter, banana, and vanilla between the jars and stir thoroughly to combine, making sure that the peanut butter and banana are distributed evenly.
  • Cover the containers and allow the oats to sit in the fridge overnight or until thickened (sometimes I'll even just leave them for 30 minutes to an hour and they're all ready to go)! Taste. Add in maple syrup or preferred sweetener and/or protein powder, if desired.
  • To serve, top with a drizzle of peanut butter, chocolate chips and chopped peanuts, if desired.

Notes

  • Use an overripe banana as this will help contribute extra sweetness to the oat mixture. Bananas that aren't ripe don't tend to be as sweet and have a stronger banana flavour.
  • Make sure that you thoroughly mix in the peanut butter and banana so that the flavours are distributed evenly throughout the oat mixture.
  • Be sure to mix the oat mixture well, folding it with a spoon or small spatula, as sometimes the cocoa powder or other ingredients may settle to the bottom of the bowl or jar.
  • Sweeten the overnight oats to taste. Personally, I skip the maple syrup and just add a tablespoon of vegan vanilla protein powder and find that adds the perfect amount of sweetness and a little extra protein!
  • The oats can be eaten cold, at room temperature or warm. If you would like to eat them warm, heat them in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.
  • They will keep in the fridge covered for up to 4 days.
