As an honorary weather woman I am going to say that I AM OVER THE COLD. Minneapolis was teased with 65ºF weather a few weeks ago and now we’re back in the 20’s. Once I put the shorts on, I don’t take them off and let’s just say I’m freezing my buns off in these shorts! Now that day light savings has officially passed, I am in 100% spring mode, no matter what the temperature. This includes —> OVERNIGHT OATS. You guys loved Oatmeal Week 2017 so much, that I decided to keep the oat train moving with another delicious recipe.

Peanut Butter + Chocolate = Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats = BEST OATS EVER.

Today’s recipe is sponsored by Silk! I started drinking almond milk when I was in high school because…DID YOU KNOW? I used to be severely lactose intolerant growing up? This might be TMI but after consuming dairy of any kind I’d give it about 10 minutes before the diarrhea came. Ugh. Once I hit puberty I started to tolerate dairy a little bit better, but my love for almond milk still trumps cow’s milk to this day. I just love the silkiness, sweetness, and taste better. Silk has an incredible line-up on nondairy beverages, but I like to keep things classic in my fridge and stick with their unsweetened variation (sometimes I go vanilla, like today!).

Why choose one flavor when you can have them both? I know I say this every time, but this has to be one of the most delicious overnight oat recipes we’ve ever created! I ate this for both breakfast and dessert, it’s that good :D :D <— even deserves a double smily face.

We made both flavors individually in large glass tupperware and then separated them out into single serve jars for easy access in the AM. These jars though. You need them. Feel free to double and/or triple this recipe depending on how many people you need to serve. It should stay good in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Serve them with a swirl of peanut butter on the jar and a few mini chocolate chips on top.
