Cast your vote for Healthy Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oa

I admit, I'm definitely not a morning person. I've also never been a huge breakfast person, which is bad because it is the most important meal of the day! For years I just ate cereal and instant oatmeal. But now I've discovered something so much better and healthier, yet still easy to make!

It's like dessert for breakfast but it's healthy!! Healthy Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats are also vegan! This simple meal is a great way to start your day! Overnight oats are a fantastic way to make a healthy breakfast for those who are always in a rush in the morning. Overnight oats can easily be much healthier than instant oatmeal and can also be easily tailored to your liking.

Below is a recipe I came up with for overnight oats. It's only four ingredients, yet it tastes like a delicious chocolate treat. I use Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats to make this recipe gluten free. The chia seeds give a dose of omeg-3s and healthy fats while also thickening up the oatmeal. The peanut butter adds some protein and a great taste to go along with the dairy free chocolate almond milk from Almond Breeze. Since I'm using dairy free milk, the recipe is also vegan!

The process is so simple! Add all the ingredients into a bowl before bedtime, throw it in the refrigerator and let sit overnight. By morning the oats have soaked up some flavor and its ready to be eaten cold or heated up in the microwave for a hot breakfast.

If you know you'll be in a rush in the morning and can't eat till you get to work, just put the overnight oats in a mason jar or tupperware the night before and you're all set to grab it and run out the door in the morning. I can't stress enough how easy it is!

This recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth while also giving you a healthy boost to start the day! It's definitely worth a try!
