This is truly a comfort food dish, and one that is perfect for anyone who is as obsessed with peanut butter as I am.

1/2 cup Rolled Oats     

2 Tablespoons Powdered Peanut Butter

Unsweetened Almond Milk (to desired thickness)

Liquid Stevia (to desired taste around 10 drops)

1 Tablespoon Allergy-free Mini Chocolate Chips

Berries (optional)

Almonds (optional)

Directions

Night prep time:

10 mins

Morning prep time:                             

5 minutes

Ready in:

Overnight or 4-6 Hours at the earliest


Step 1: Nighttime Prep

1. Using your measuring cup, measure out half a cup of rolled oats, and pour it into the container.

2. Then using your tablespoon, measure out two tablespoons of powdered peanut butter, and pour into the container.

3. Using your spoon, mix together thoroughly the rolled oats and the peanut butter.

*Really make sure that the peanut butter is fully integrated with the rolled oats. This will prevent peanut butter clumps from forming in your oats.

4. Pour in just enough almond milk to where there is a light layer of milk at the top of the oats.

(You should still be able to see traces of the oats underneath the milk)

*I don’t measure for this part because it really does depend on how thick or wet you like your oats. For wetter oats, you can add a little more milk; for thicker oats, you can just follow the previous step.

To give yourself more control, I would always start with making thicker oats, and then add almond milk in the morning to make them wetter.

5. Mix the almond milk, rolled oats, and peanut butter thoroughly; you want to make sure that the peanut butter does not clump together. The oats should look like they are in a peanut butter milk bath.

6. Once mixed thoroughly, place a lid on the container, and put away in the fridge to sit overnight or at least 4 to 6 hours at the earliest.

Step 2: Daytime Prep

1. Take your oats out of the fridge, and remove the lid.

*Depending on how much milk you used, they should be thickened (ie. It shouldn’t be runny or moving around… unless that’s how you like them!) I like mine a lil’ wet. But to give myself control over how wet they are, I typically prepare them to be solid when I take them out the fridge.

2. Add a small amount (like a tablespoon) of almond milk until you get your desired consistency.

3. Add between 10-12 drops of liquid stevia. You can add more until you reach your desired taste, but I wouldn’t add much more than 15 drops (unless you’re used to adding that much).

4. Add any toppings you like! I would keep in mind, however, that the berries will add more carbs to what was listed above, and the almonds will add more fat to what was listed above. So I would add based on whichever macronutrient you have the most room for.

You can use an app like My Fitness Pal to determine what your daily macronutrient goals are.

I tend to go with the mini chocolate chips, but I’ve added nuts and berries too!
