Craving the decadent combination of chocolate and peanut butter? Instead of reaching for a Reese's, make this creamy chocolate and peanut butter overnight oatmeal recipe tonight and you'll be so excited to jump out of bed in the morning.

This bowl is packed with protein-rich ingredients including chia seeds, peanut butter, peanuts, rolled oats, and plant-based chocolate protein powder, offering over 32 grams of protein. It tastes utterly chocolatey with swirls of peanut butter, but don't worry — the protein powder doesn't make it taste chalky whatsoever.

If you're avoiding added sugars, this recipe is sweetened naturally with mashed banana, and instead of chocolate chips, it's topped with cacao nibs. I felt like it was sweet enough, but you can always add maple syrup (or maybe honey says this sweet bee), or real chocolate chips if you prefer.

Prep Time5 minutes
Yield1 serving

From Jenny Sugar


    • 1/2 banana, mashed
    • 1/2 cup rolled oats
    • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
    • 1/2 serving chocolate plant-based protein powder (I used Vega Performance Protein; 22 grams and 15 grams of protein)
    • 1 cup unsweetened soy milk
    • 1 tablespoon peanut butter (I used crunchy, save for the morning)
    • 1/2 tablespoon chopped peanuts (save for the morning)
    • 1/2 tablespoon cacao nibs (save for the morning)


    1. Add the first five ingredients to a mason jar or bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed.

    2. Pop it in the fridge overnight.

    3. In the morning add the peanut butter (I warmed mine in a little bowl in the microwave first and then added it to the cold oatmeal), then sprinkle on the chopped peanuts and cacao nibs, and enjoy.
