Why Should I Try Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats?
Overnight oats — of the peanut butter chocolate variety (or in general) — are inexpensive, can be modified in all sorts of ways, and they take literally 5 minutes to put together!
Overnight, the oats soak up the moisture of the liquid and create a hearty, fiber and protein-rich breakfast. And, you’ve got to admit, oats + milk/alternative milk + berries/nuts/nut butter is a pretty yummy breakfast combo.
Also, I’m so excited that overnight oats are now trendy ever since set-it-and-forget-it became hip. Instant pots, slow cookers, overnight oatmeal, and chia pudding are all cool.
The last one can just go away. It tastes like slime.
But, I’m really just happy that something other than kale is popular! Anyone else feel like we were going to be stuck with it forever? Not that, you know, I don’t love kale, but it was quickly on its way to becoming that lingering guest at the party that was never. going. to. leave.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats Variations
It’s easy to make this recipe your own! Here’s a few ideas you can try:
- Swap the nut butter. Substitute cashew butter, almond butter, or crunchy peanut butter for creamy peanut butter.
- Try different types of chocolate. Dark chocolate and milk chocolate will have their own flavor, as will cacao nibs!
- Change up the milk! Dairy milk, oat milk, or macadamia nut milk would all be fantastic. Or use Greek yogurt for more protein.
- Add banana! Just don’t add it until the morning unless you like mushy banana.
- Add chia seeds for more fiber. Just kidding. Don’t do that. Those things are the worst.

I bring this up as this post is part of the Foodies Fighting Hunger movement. We’re a group of food bloggers who have come together to raise awareness about the fact that 1 in 7 Americans struggles with hunger by creating a meal that costs less than $5 to make.
No matter what your income, you’re probably living on some sort of budget. And perhaps there have been times in your life when you’ve struggled to make ends meet. I know there have been for me. But I still can’t help but be shocked that 48.1 million Americans (including 15.3 million American children and 5.4 million seniors) struggle with hunger or food insecurity.
Take a moment and mentally combine the populations of New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles. That’s how many children in this country struggle with hunger. Mississippi is the state that struggles the most, and 22% of those living there are food insecure, meaning they do not have consistent access to adequate food due to money or resources at times during the year.
If you’re as struck by these numbers as I am and want to help, here’s how:
• Add your voice to the advocacy campaigns MAZON is working on.
• You can educate yourself and others about the state of hunger in this country and beyond.
• Donate to or volunteer at your local food bank. Here’s a food bank finder to make that easier.
