Mix the rolled oats with the chia seeds, adding the milk, peanut butter, maple syrup and cacao nibs.*
Stir well. Set aside to soak for at least 1 hour or, for best results, keep in the fridge overnight. **
To decorate your breakfast jars, you can melt a bit of dark chocolate and, using a brush or just your clean fingers, draw a few chocolate strokes on the inside of the jar.
Layer the overnight oats with the yogurt and top with some shredded chocolate or drizzle the left-over melted chocolate.
Add a few peanuts on top and sit back and enjoy the health benefits of this beautiful and delicious breakfast.
*You can add some cacao/cocoa powder for added chocolatey goodness. Alternatively, you can combine the cacao nibs with chocolate chips. ** You can assemble the entire jar the night before and just grab from the fridge the next day. Alternatively, prepare the oats the night before and assemble when you're ready to eat.
Add some cacao/ cocoa powder for a super chocolatey version of these chocolate peanut butter overnight oats. You can also add in some crushed chocolate or chocolate chips into the dish, alongside cacao nibs.
Choose the yogurt of your choice - I often swap out the yogurt I use for my overnight oats recipes, depending on what texture and flavour I want. Homemade coconut yogurt or almond yogurt are slightly thinner and add a bit of flavour to the dish. Meanwhile, using a dairy option like Greek yogurt is a lot thicker/creamier and makes it richer. Natural yogurt is a good 'neutral' for any of the oats recipes.
