Dessert for breakfast! If it’s healthy then why not? This overnight oats has the peanut butter and chocolate combination made famous by the USA chocolate icon, Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups. If you aren’t yet a convert to overnight oats, then this recipe may just change your mind.
Despite the high plant protein content of peanut butter, there are many differing opinions as to whether it is actually good for you. To be on the safe side, I mostly use other nut butters, yet I still keep a jar of peanut butter in the fridge for making dishes where only the distinct flavour of peanut butter will do; dishes like Satay Chicken Curry, Peanut Butter and Honey Popsicles, and of course this Overnight Oats.
For the best peanut butter, choose one that has peanuts as the only ingredient. Many companies add vegetable oil, sugar and salt.
If avoiding gluten, be sure to check that your oats are labelled gluten free. I talk about oats and gluten in my Blueberry Pancakes post.
