  • ½ cup rolled oats regular or gluten free
  • 2-3 teaspoon peanut butter or any nut or seed butter
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoon pure maple syrup or honey
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds optional


  • Combine all ingredients in small jar or bowl that can be sealed. Stir well and then cover.
  • Refrigerate overnight. Serving options: serve with a sprinkle of cocoa nibs, extra peanut butter drizzle, dark chocolate chips, or sliced banana.


  • Sweeten these overnight oats with your preferred sweetener and use the maple syrup as a guide. Everyone has a different preferred level of sweet.
  • I had 2 teaspoon of shredded coconut in this recipe for a long time, feel free to add it, but it is not everyone's favorite so moved it to the notes as an option!
