Your morning breakfast just got a whole lot better with my Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats recipe!

Hi friends!

Did you know that the inventor of Reese’s peanut butter cups first totally flopped in the candy world by inventing candy with chocolate, almond and raisins?   Now SURE… that combination sounds good enough… but in my world nothing trumps that dreamy, creamy chocolate and peanut butter combination.  Like many of you, I’m a sucker for a peanut butter cup.  That flavor can totally derail all the healthy eating I’ve done all day!  For that reason I try to just enjoy them as a treat now and then.

BUT what if I don’t you I came up with a perfectly respectable HEALTHY, breakfast idea that satisfied that chocolatly… peanut buttery…. craving?!  Yup… you can have this Peanut Butter Cup Overnight oats recipe AND feel amazing eating it.

You seeeee….. I’ve been secretly vying for the title of your most favoritest healthy foodie blogger and I hope this DRIZZLE takes me over the edge.

OR at least makes this memorable enough for you to try this at home.

Now if that drizzle looks like a pain and unnecessary for breakfast… it is totally optional… you still get loads of the flavor from the oats itself.

The secret is in adding some cocoa powder and powdered peanut butter.  I’m not a big fan of the stuff just to eat, but I really like it for recipes like this when you need to stir it into something.  It’s simple and keeps the overall calorie count at a respectable level.    If you haven’t tried it yet try this one or this one.

My Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats recipe is filling and hearty with lots of old-fashioned rolled oats… which are practically a super food in my option.  They are cheap and hearty!

Are you sold yet?  How about in addition to everything else, my Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats recipe is vegan and even gluten-free friendly using the right oats!  All kidding aside (there are so many fabulous bloggers in the world) I hope you love it as much as I do.
