Ingredients

For the Overnight Oats:

  • ¼ cup peanut butter See Note 1
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder See Notes 2 and 3
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 ¼ cup (300 ml) milk - I use almond or oat See Note 4
  • 1 cup (80 g) old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

Toppings (optional):

  • Greek yoghurt or coconut yoghurt
  • peanuts - roughly chopped
  • peanut butter drizzle and cacao nibs

Instructions

  • In a medium-size bowl, add the cacao powder, maple syrup, peanut butter and milk. Whisk until well combined, ensuring there are no lumps.
  • Add the oats and chia seeds and stir to combine.
  • Cover the bowl with clingwrap, or divide the mixture into two glasses or mason jars and cover. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Serve with toppings of your choice and additional milk if the mixture is too thick.

Notes

  1. Peanut Butter: use smooth or crunchy – whatever you prefer.
  2. Raw Cacao Powder: is the raw version of cocoa powder. 
  3. Tablespoon: we use a standard Australian tablespoon which is 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
  4. Milk: use milk of your choice. I use almond or oat milk. Add more milk when serving if you prefer a thinner texture.
  5. Toppings: the toppings are optional (and are not included in the nutritional information). Use toppings of your liking - see suggestions above.
