chunky monkey overnight oats! (1).jpg


yesterday I’m talking about making yoga more hardcore, and today I’m giving you a chocolate pb dream team in an overnight oat recipe looking dessert worthy. 

I guess it’s what they say… balance.

but honestly, these overnight oats are dairy free, gluten free, and don’t have any added sugar. this breakfast is also filled with super food  cacao, healthy fats like nut butter & coconut….

ok, I take it back- eat all the chunky monkey overnight oats your little heart desires this sunday morning.

if you don’t want to do them overnight style, just stir the ingredients in and add toppings to a traditional oatmeal bowl.

or, get this recipe set up and in the fridge for Mon-daze morning when you need it most.

// what you need //

serves 1 

3/4 cup of gluten free oats. 

1/2-3/4 cup of almond milk- I notice it gets dry overnight, so I add a bit extra. go with what you like!

1/8 tsp. vanilla extract

1-2 tbsp. of peanut butter (or almond or cashew)

1 tbsp. raw cacao powder

handful of enjoy life chocolate chips

optional: sweetener if preferred, unsweetened coconut, powdered peanut butter,


// how to make it //

prepare the overnight oats (or allow to chill in fridge for a few hours before enjoying)

first, add milk, cacao, oats, vanilla and optional sweetener  – agave, maple syrup, stevia- to jar or bowl.  shake and stir well.

when ready to eat,  stir in nut butter (or powdered pb) banana chips, coconut, and a few dairy free chocolate chips.

top: with more banana chips, coconut, fresh banana, drizzle of peanut butter…

whatever you’d like- go bananas! (woah, kate.)


 

in the spirit of self care sunday, I’m keeping this blog post brief to go enjoy the last of the weekend.

but I have never met a chocolate/pb/coconut/banana combo I haven’t loved, and this overnight oatmeal was no exception.

enjoy the fleeting weekend and these oats, loves!

    Chunky monkey is now one of my favorite flavors ever since I started cultivating a love for nut butters and dark chocolate! I can imagine that chunky monkey oatmeal would taste absolutely amazing too! I’m also trying to find a good oatmeal bowl to place it in because my favorite one broke!
