Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

I love breakfast.  Biscuits and sausage gravy, grits, scrambled eggs with bacon and fried mush are a few of my favorites.  But none of those foods are helping shrink my waistline.  And I am making an effort to shrink some parts of me.  So I’ve been on a hunt for some quick and easy breakfast foods that are easy to make and keep  me full for more than a few hours.

The internet is full of overnight oats recipes.  And I’ve been afraid to try them.  I can’t stand instant oatmeal.  It was something I ate all the time as a kid and I can’t even choke down oatmeal now.  So the thought of going back to oatmeal for breakfast was a bit shocking to me!

However, I have found a way to make oatmeal that tastes great!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats.  Yum!!  I can mix these up in 60 seconds.  And while they do taste better if you put them in the fridge for at least an hour, I have eaten them immediately too.  They taste just fine.  And if you sprinkle them with just a bit of chocolate chips, you get a very decadent breakfast treat, for roughly 300 calories!  Enjoy!!
