Overnight oats have been all the rage lately and to be honest, I initially just did not believe the hype. It wasn’t until I started to take my health and fitness journey seriously…again, that I started to consider how I could incorportate overnight oats into my daily routine. That said, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats have been a game changer!
Not only do they make my meal prep a breeze and help me stay on track with my goals, but they are PACKED with protein. What’s even more exciting is that they are also one of my signature 5 ingredients or less recipes – not including the toppings of course!

Here is what you need to make these delicious, high protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats:
While many overnight oats recipes call for protein powder, I personally like using premade protein shakes to make my overnight oats. Don’t get me wrong, you can totally use protein powder and add your favorite milk (or nut milk), and achieve the same result, but using premade protein shakes gives me so many flavor possibilities and simply make overall prep a lot easier.
To Prepare The Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats:
The best thing about the prep for overnight oats is that it’s quick and easy. Some people choose to add all ingredients into one large bowl, mix, and divide into equal parts into each container. However, I prefer to make each of my overnight oats individually to ensure that I am getting the same amount of ingredients in each container and can therefore successfully track my macros.
In you desired container (these and these are wonderful for overnight oats), add your oats, chia seeds, peanut butter, greek yogurt, and pre-made protein shake into your containers and mix well. You want to be sure to mix until each ingredient has been well combined. You can also mix and then cover and shake vigorously.
Repeat for the number of servings that you plan to make and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
