Chocolate peanut butter overnight oats


I haven't really gotten on the over night oats train until now because I assumed you ate them cold (yuck). But I've since learned you warm them up before you eat them and then top them with delicious things! 



So of course for my first crack at it I had to use peanut butter! Since I had just made a big batch of homemade peanut butter I couldn't resist. I decided to add in some cocoa and a little honey! Yum 

In the morning I just opened it up and put it into the microwave for 1.5 minutes to heat and thicken it a bit more. It was the perfect consistency! 


Now you could eat it completely plain (not really plain since there is peanut butter and chocolate inside) or you can add whatever toppings you like. Fruit is a great option and bananas would be perfect on this. But it's the end of the week here which means we are low on everything fruit and veg! So I wisked together some peanut butter and maple syrup for a quick peanut sauce and sprinkled a few chocolate covered chia seeds on top! Super peanut butter and chocolate-y!!
