So tell me. Are you more of a breakfast for breakfast person or a breakfast for dinner person? I’m a breakfast for everything person. All the major breakfast staples are just so satisfying to me. Eggs, waffles, pancakes, oats, oats and more OATS!
But the best part about these oats is they taste like a hybrid version of breakfast and dessert. A couple of bites will completely satisfy your chocolate craving. My taste buds have almost been completely fooled into thinking I’m eating a cold Reese’s. Mmmm 🙂
The real MVP of this recipe is chocolate PB2. If you’re not familiar with PB2, it is a powdered peanut butter with 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter. Simply mix it with a little water to obtain the creamy consistency of peanut butter and slather it on toast, fruit, crackers or whatever your desired snack may be. Or, of course, use it in your instant or overnight oat recipes.
I’ve always been a huge fan of traditional PB2, but chocolate PB2 has been a real game changer. The combination of premium blended cocoa beans with slow roasted peanuts creates such a rich, wonderful flavor that is oh-so satisfying.
Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast to make in advance for hectic weekday mornings. They are high in fiber and protein, low in sugar and will keep you full and energized as you tackle your day. I love eating them right out of the refrigerator with a warm mug of coffee. Chocolate + Peanut Butter + Caffeine = winning combo, folks.
I will close this post with one request: take 5 minutes out of your evening tonight to prepare these oats. You deserve a delicious, nutritious Friday morning treat!
