  • 3/4 cup dairy free milk (you may need more if you like a thinner consistency)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • .5 tablespoon maple syrup (add more if you'd like it a little sweeter)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter (or nut butter of choice), softened*
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (can use gluten free oats)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds


  • sliced bananas, nuts, seeds (optional)


  1. I like to mix the wet ingredients (through peanut butter) in a bowl first to make for easier mixing.
  2. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a small mason jar or a container with lid/saran wrap.
  4. Place in the fridge overnight or a few hours until oats are completely softened.
  5. You can store the overnight oats in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  6. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you keep your peanut butter in the refrigerator, it's usually easier to mix if you take it out of the fridge about 10 minutes beforehand so it's not as hard.

You can substitute another nut butter like almond butter for peanut butter if you're not a fan. Or if you're allergic to nuts, you can substitute tahini which is made from sesame seeds. I have not tried tahini in this yet but I would add a bit more vanilla to the recipe if using tahini as it has a milder taste than nuts do.
