Chocolate and Peanut Butter Overnight Oats


Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Chocolate and peanut butter. Peanut butter and chocolate. In my opinion, there is no greater flavor combination. Whoever decided to take a bar of chocolate and dip it into peanut butter is seriously a genius and my hero. However, even though I worship this person I also shake my fist at them because these two delicious flavors united, as one, is by far my biggest weakness. As many years as I have been writing this blog and no matter how strong my healthy habits have become I still find it incredibly difficult to walk through the check out line at Target and not grab a package of reese peanut butter cups. I try to be good but once in awhile – because I am human – I cave just like any normal person would do. Just sayin.

Now I know it would be impossible for me to maintain my weight loss and also give into my chocolate peanut butter craving (aka obsession) all the time so I am always looking for healthier alternatives.


OYS writer Danielle (who is also a childhood friend) uses powered peanut butter all the times in recipes. I never tried the stuff but after many readers suggested using it instead of regular peanut butter in my PB Banana Green Smoothie, I decided to give it a try in a new recipe I was dreaming about – Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats.

I purchased a container of Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter. It is only 50 calories for 2 tablespoons compared to 200 calories for two tablespoons of regular peanut butter. The directions call for 2 tablespoons per 1 tablespoon of water to make peanut butter. Instead of making the peanut butter and adding it to the recipe I just stirred in 2 tablespoon into the almond milk I used for the recipe. This amount gave the recipe the perfect amount of peanut butter flavor.


For the chocolate part I used 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. I sweetened it up with 2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup and added 1 teaspoon of mini chocolate chips in the morning.

This Peanut Chocolate Overnight Oats is absolutely delicious. It was almost dessert like with the flavors of peanut butter and chocolate along with a creamy pudding consistency. The crunch from the peanuts and mini chocolate chips just sent this recipe over the top for me. I loved it and can envision it satisfying any chocolate peanut butter craving I might have.

    How do the oats cook?

    • You don’t need to cook the oats, follow the recipe, put the jar in your fridge overnight, get up and stir them up and eat. Delicious and healthy.

  2. Can I use quick oats, or do they have to be the regular (old fashioned) kind?

    Many Thanks!


  3. Traci Moore says:

    So do these never need to be cooked at all in the process? Do you eat them cold? If I prefer to eat them warm, should I heat them then add, peanuts, chic chips, the coconut or almonds on other recipes? I think I’m about to get hooked on these. They all look incredible.

  4. I have never even heard of powdered peanut butter. Consider me intrigued! I will definitely be trying this because I LOVE peanut butter and chocolate too! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. They do sell the powdered peanut butter in a chocolate flavor as well. Target carries them both on the top shelf by the regular peanut butter.

  6. Stephanie says:

    I was just going to ask where to get powdered peanut butter. Target? Thanks for the info. Can’t wait to try?

  7. I was wondering about heating this up before eating?!

  8. 49 WW Points+?????!!!!!

  9. What do you mean by rolled oats? Are they cooked or not cooked? What brand do you buy?

  10. I’m allergic to almonds, would regular milk be just as good?

  11. I made these last night and just tasted them. To me, these are so plain with virtually no flavor other than unsweetened chocolate and hint of peanut butter. There is no sweetness at all and I made it exactly as described. Sounded so good. I wonder how I could sweeten this up?

  12. Ashley Cluchie says:

    These have quickly become a favorite of mine! I eat them at least once a week. I needed a little extra sweetness so I added an extra teaspoon of pure maple syrup. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes and journey with us! I still have a long way to go in my weight loss journey but your recipes help me stay on track. I’ve also started crossfit and love it! You are an inspiration!

  13. diann keyser says:

    can i use steel cut instead?

  14. Can you use real peanut butter instead of the powdered peanut butter? I researched PB2 and I found it does not have the best ingredients. The organic version is also really expensive. Could I just use real peanut butter instead? Thanks 🙂

  15. Loved this! Went to work and told everyone about it! Ooh can’t forget about the banana Nutella muffins! Bethany you for posting these amazing recipes!

  16. I saw so many unanswered questions so I thought I’d fill in some blanks:

    -Do I cook them first?: No. They soak overnight in the liquid.
    -What kind of oats do I use? Rolled or Old fashioned, they are basically the same thing
    -Can I use steel cut? Yes, if you like crunchy, under-soaked oats.
    -Can I use instant oats? Yes, if you like mushy, over-soaked oats.
    -Can I use real peanut butter? Yes, you can use any type of nut butter you like.
    -How can I sweeten this up? Try a few spoonfuls of vanilla yogurt. Or a few banana slices.
    -Can I use regular milk? Yes.
    -Can I warm them up? Yes, but try it cold first (it’s awesome, trust me) leave the jar on the counter for 10-20 mins to take the chill off.

    You’re overnight oats base is equal parts oats and liquid. Endless add-ins.
    Hope this helps!

  17. I found this recipe searching for a warm-weather replacement for my crock pot steel cut oats. They’re fabulous when it’s 20 degrees outside, but not so much when it’s 80. This one is awesome! Of course, me being me, I made some changes… I swapped hemp milk for the almond milk (as Mother Jones is making me feel bad about almonds lately), and I used cacao powder instead of cocoa powder. Even though the spellings are very close, they’re quite different things. Cacao is raw, and it has a lot more nutrients than cocoa powder (which is highly processed). Cocoa powder also has a powdery FEEL to it that I don’t like in my refrigerator oats. I strongly recommend trying cacao in anything chocolate-y that you’re not going to cook.

    I also made the whole thing in a Glasslock bowl instead of a little Mason jar. The little jars are adorable, and I own a bunch myself, but eating breakfast out of them isn’t my favorite thing… I like to toss in a sliced banana with my oats, and just try doing that in a cute little jar! One nice thing about the Glasslock bowls is that you can just put all of your oatmeal ingredients into the bowl, give it a few good shakes, and then you’re done. I make breakfast for the whole week and it just takes a few minutes. You need to use a bowl with a VERY secure lid for this… Otherwise you’ll end up with your lovely chocolate oats on the ceiling!

  18. I don’t care for powdered peanut butter on its own, but I bet in a smoothie or in overnight oats like this it would be perfect.

  19. I don’t know how you came up with that calorie amount. I made it without the peanuts and chocolate chips. I love it. However it came out to 325 calories.

  20. Just made this and it was yummy and hearty! I swapped honey for maple syrup and one tablespoon of regular peanut butter for the powder. My recipe builder says 378 calories with no nuts or chocolate chips. A bit on the high side for breakfast, but very filling! I’m an instant overnight oats convert. Strawberries tomorrow!
