How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Overnight Oats
To make the oats, put all of the dry ingredients into the mason jar and shake well. Then, add all remaining ingredients and shake well again. Store in the refrigerator overnight. I prefer to eat the oats cold but they can also be warmed up. Top with a scoop of peanut butter and a couple dark chocolate chips and enjoy!
Any protein powder brand of your choice can be used for this recipe. Our favorite is Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey in Extreme Milk Chocolate flavor!
