Wait...cold oatmeal that tastes like a peanut butter cookie? That's right.
I have been obsessed with oatmeal ever since I can remember but I hadn't even heard of overnight oats until very recently. Naturally, it intrigued me. The idea of putting everything into a bowl the night before and just opening it up in the morning is great. Why didn't I think of it?! This oatmeal is so rich and creamy it really is like a spoonful of peanut butter cookie!
Peanut Butter Cookie Overnight Oats
1/2 cup dry oats
1 cup non-dairy milk
1 Tbsp melted peanut butter (pop it in the microwave for about 25 seconds until liquidy)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
sweetener of choice (I used maple syrup)
The night before:
Combine the oats, milk, peanut butter, and vanilla in an airtight storage container. Place in fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.
In the morning you will have perfectly creamy, fluffy, peanut buttery oats! Just stir in your sweetener, add any toppings you want, and EAT!
Do you have a routine to get you going in the morning?
