Are you new to overnight oats?  I had no idea what they were until I saw some photos floating around on social media.  I knew I had to see what all of the hype was about.  Overnight oats are a great on-the-go breakfast idea because you don’t even need to heat them up!  I thought that concept was very strange at first: cold oatmeal?  I remembered how much I love Muesli on the cruise I went on (a cold breakfast dish containing oats) and then it all made sense.  You make these Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats the night before, stick them in the fridge and the mixture thickens while the oats also soften overnight.  It might sound gross to some of you, but they really are a great way to enjoy oats.  I know summer is past now (I just shed a tear…) but they are great for a warmer day or post-workout meal/snack.

Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats are a healthy breakfast recipe idea for busy, on-the-go families.

These overnight oats are the perfect breakfast food: filling, inexpensive, and healthy.  You prepare them the night before for a quick and easy morning meal. The star ingredient in this recipe is the maple peanut butter but you can feel free to use any flavor of peanut butter you have on hand!  The peanut butter adds protein and healthy fats to help keep you full throughout your morning.  Plus, you can satisfy your chocolate craving first thing in the morning!  The cool thing about this recipe is that it’s so easy to customize depending on what you have on hand and make it your own by adding whatever you like to it.

Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats are a healthy breakfast recipe idea to take to work or eat in the car. They are eaten cold!

I’m excited about today’s #Oatober giveaway because it contains some of my very favorite pantry staples: Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats and Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter.  I used both of these ingredients to make the Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats.  My favorite brand of peanut butter is Peanut Butter & Co and they have an awesome variety of flavors!  I love to bake (peanut butter cookie dough brownies, pumpkin spice peanut butter oat bars) with their delicious peanut butter as it is made with all-natural ingredients – I always have it on hand.  Bob’s Red Mill, as you know, has great products that I use almost daily.

    I made your recipe! I didn’t have the same peanut butter so I used plain and added some maple syrup. I can’t wait to eat it 🙂
