overnight oats


Recipe: Chocolate & Peanut Butter Oats


Dessert for breakfast? Why not. And nope, this is not as unhealthy as the name suggests. I find plain oats to be so boring, so here is a combination I decided to make. These are overnight oats too! So you can just grab them from the fridge in the morning.

NOTE: This is calculated without including milk.



  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (or cacao or carob)
  • 1/2 a ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 pinch of desiccated coconut
  • (optional) Nut-milk to serve


  1. In a container which can be sealed air tight place the 1 cup and oats, 2 tbsp of cocoa and stir in 1 cup of boiling water
  2. Add in 1/2 a banana (which has been cut up into small pieces)
  3. Stir all these ingredients together until there is an even consistency
  4. Seal container and place it in the fridge overnight
  5. Remove container in the morning and serve with a pinch of desiccated coconut and 1 tbsp of peanut butter (go easy on these because desiccated coconut is surprisingly high in saturated fat, and peanut butter is a very calorie-dense food - 100+ calories for 1 spoonful).
  6. If you want, you could add something like an almond milk or hazelnut milk to eat it with.
