Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Posted on

Ok ok, I’ve always been an overnight oats hater, but I didn’t want to be! So I came up with a plan that couldn’t fail, a plan involving the marriage of chocolate and peanut butter.
Mix together in a bowl or a jar:
1/2 c rolled oats
2T vanilla brown rice protein
1T chia seeds
2T natural peanut butter
1t cacao bliss (optional, can use cacao nibs)
1t agave nectar or maple syrup
1 1/4 c almond milk
1/2 t vanilla extracct
Stir or shake well and refrigerate overnight. Serve with banana soft serve if you’re extra hungry. (blend or food process a frozen banana with a small amount of almond milk+vanilla.)
Without the soft serve, SparkPeople tells me this meal has:
470 calories, 29 carbs, 25 grams of fat, and 33 grams of protein. The bulk of the calories and fat (210 cal, 16 g fat) comes from the peanut butter, which I will be leaving out next time. Chia seeds also added 5 grams of fat to the total. I used peanut butter to win myself over to overnight oats, and they’re good, but after seeing this info, I’m better off with a smoothie+protein powder!

And don’t forget, there’s still time to win The Happy Herbivore Cookbook!

About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.

  1. I’m a big fan of overnight oats, but I’ve never put protein powder in them. I’ll have to try that out. :o)
