Overnight Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Oats

After seeing Angela from Oh She Glows make numerous variations of these overnight chia oats, I decided it was about time to try it.

The texture is very different from anything I’d ever tried. It almost made me nauseous when I first tried it. My second round was much better. But, it took me a couple of weeks to attempt it again. So don’t be afraid to try it again.

It is super filling. Splitting this meal between two people would almost be better. Neither my husband, nor I, could eat all of our bowls. Anyway. Here it goes! :-)

  1. I’ve yet to try chia oats but I don’t think I’ve ever met a chocolate-peanut-butter flavored food item I haven’t liked. I’ll have to give this recipe a shot… Thanks for sharing!

    1. I found them at Earthfare and I’m pretty sure Fresh Market or any other organic or specialty store would have them. :-) They are kind of pricey, but they last a LONG time.

  2. Hi Caroline :) I have seen all of Angela’s varieties & have not tried any yet. I love the warm comfort food of oatmeal so not sure about eating it COLD out of frig. It does sound yummy though.
