Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Oats

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plain almond milk (or other dairy-free milks, such as coconut, soy, or hemp!)
  • 3/4 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoon natural salted peanut butter or almond butter (creamy or crunchy // or sub other nut or seed butter)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or sub coconut sugar, organic brown sugar, or stevia to taste)
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats (rolled oats are best, vs. steel cut or quick cooking)

Toppings (Optional)

  • Sliced banana, strawberries, or raspberries
  • Flaxseed meal or additional chia seed
  • Granola

Instructions

  1. To a mason jar or small bowl with a lid, add almond milk, chia seeds, peanut butter, and maple syrup (or other sweetener) and stir with a spoon to combine. The peanut butter doesn’t need to be completely mixed with the almond milk (doing so leaves swirls of peanut butter to enjoy the next day).
  2. Add oats and stir a few more times. Then press down with a spoon to ensure all oats have been moistened and are immersed in almond milk.
  3. Cover securely with a lid or seal and set in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least 6 hours) to set/soak.
  4. The next day, open and enjoy as is or garnish with desired toppings.

Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, though best within the first 12-24 hours in our experience. Not freezer friendly.
