Wake up to a yummy meal prep breakfast with our peanut butter chocolate overnight oats recipe! It’s delicious, and easy to make in advance. (Gluten-Free, Vegan)



For The Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats: 

  • 1 Tbsp. drippy natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy!)
  • 2 tsp. unsweetened dark cocoa powder (Dutch cocoa/alkalized cocoa powder)
  • 1/21 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt (less than 1/8 tsp.)
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (certified gluten-free, as needed)
  • 3/41 cup almond milk

Optional toppings:

  • Additional peanut butter, for drizzling
  • Chopped peanuts
  • Cacao nibs
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Sliced bananas or fresh berries


  1. In a bowl, combine peanut butter, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Whisk to combine (the mixture will be thick.)
  2. Add chia seeds & rolled oats to the chocolate peanut butter mixture.
  3. Drizzle in the milk and stir until well combined. (No large chunks of cocoa powder or peanut butter should remain. A few small pieces of peanut butter are fine!)
  4. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes to thicken slightly, then stir again. (This will help prevent the chia seeds from settling in a clump or falling all to the bottom.)
  5. Transfer the mixture to a bowl or jar and cover. 
  6. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  7. When you’re ready to serve them, give the oats a stir and garnish with your favorite toppings.
  8. Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats will stay fresh in the refrigerator 2-3 days for the best texture, but can keep up to 4-5 days. 
  9. To serve the oats warm, heat in a pan on the stovetop with a drizzle of milk over medium heat, or in a bowl in the microwave for 60-90 seconds with a drizzle of milk, as needed.
