    What can I expect? 

    Most overnight oat recipes or store-bought options contain large amounts of carbs, refined sugar, and other undesirable ingredients, but you won’t find any of that here! Instead, we use natural, nutritious foods to replicate the creamy texture you look for in overnight oats while keeping this recipe low-carb, full of healthy fats, and loaded with fiber for a meal you can feel good about. 

    Then, we top it all off with a combination of sugar-free chocolate chips and coconut oil to create a rich, indulgent chocolate shell that satisfies your sweet tooth with zero guilt. 

    All you have to do is combine and refrigerate the ingredients. Then, create the shell, pour it on top, and refrigerate to set. You’ll have a satisfying, nutritious recipe to enjoy as a breakfast, snack, or dessert in less time than it takes to run to the store!

      Let’s take a look at the main ingredients: 

      • Hemp seeds
      • Flax seeds
      • Coconut flakes
      • Coconut Oil
      • Chia seeds
      • Natural peanut butter
      • Sugar-free chocolate chips

      Hemp seeds, flax seeds, coconut flakes, coconut oil, and peanut butter are all-natural, nutritious food sources. Each has its own list of health benefits and can be used to add texture, flavor, nutrients, and healthy fats to a variety of recipes. 

      But what about the added milk in chocolate chips? Is dairy healthy? 

      Here’s what we know. Dairy is full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. But if everyone consumed dairy all of the time, dairy farming would become abusive and unsustainable…

      Let’s be mindful of our dairy intake. Buy dairy that comes from pasture-raised cows and limit consumption.

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy.

      Add an additional 16g of sugar to this recipe (8g/serving), and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.) 

      Substitute the sugar for quality sugar alcohol, and this dessert becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, and long-lasting energy.

      Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Tips

      1. Need a nut-free option? 

      To make these peanut butter overnight oats nut-free, swap out the almond milk with oat milk, hemp milk, or even cow’s milk. Then, use a seed butter like sunflower seed butter or even tahini instead of peanut butter. You’ll still get the same rich flavor and creamy texture but with none of the nuts! 

      2. Use different chocolate chips

      We love the classic peanut butter and milk chocolate combination using these sugar-free chocolate chips. However, feel free to switch up the flavor with dark chocolate or white chocolate varieties, too! 

      3. Have leftover chocolate chips? 

      Save them to make another batch of these peanut butter overnight oats at a later date. Or, use them up, and treat yourself to a batch of chocolate chip cookies, chocolate-covered jam pucks, or chewy fudge brownies

      4. Add it to your meal prep rotation

      One of the best things about this overnight oats recipe is that when stored in an airtight container it stays fresh in the fridge for up to 5 days. So, go ahead and make a double batch! Your future self will thank you when you have quick meals ready to go all week. 

      5. Add mix-ins

      Feel free to incorporate various extra ingredients to boost nutrients, texture, and taste. For example, some of our favorite options include dried fruit, chopped nuts, extra sugar-free chocolate chips, and unsweetened cocoa powder.
