Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Overnight Oats

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are a simple breakfast that you can make ahead the night before and the protein ensures it will be very filling. This recipe makes one serving but could easily be doubled in a larger container.

To make the oats, put all of the dry ingredients into the mason jar and shake well. Then, add all remaining ingredients and shake well again. Store in the refrigerator overnight. I prefer to eat the oats cold but they can also be warmed up. Top with peanut butter and a couple dark chocolate chips and enjoy!
