Chocolate and peanut butter overnight oats

“Breakfast isn’t just the most important meal of the day, it’s one of the tastiest”

I first started making overnight oats about a year ago, when I realised preparing the night before was the best way to ensure that I ate breakfast. Over this time I’ve played with various recipes most of which have involved fruit.

However this recipe I put together myself with the aim of adding extra fruit into my daily routine later in the day – however you can always add extra fruit upon serving.

It’s oat-so-simple!

I’ve always been really careful not to add extra sugars or processed ingredients to my morning routines and with this recipe it’s no different. I often prefer it on a day when I’ve run due to it’s high (good) fat and carb content.

It is literally as easy as popping the ingredients into a jar, and often takes me just under 10 minutes – for a breakfast that will last me at least 3 days if kept refrigerated.

It tastes just like chocolate and peanut butter brownies, but the best thing is it contains no added sugars and my home-made soya milk!
