I’ve been having these brownie batter peanut butter oats on repeat! I never used to find oats all that satisfying and 9 times out of 10 if I had them for breakfast I’d end up just needing a more substantial snack before lunch to tide me over. Which is fine! But I do like my savoury breakfasts, eggs, veggies, sourdough…
However, these oats are my new favourite thing. I like cooking them briefly in the microwave and then leaving them to sit overnight in the fridge so they thicken up further. You can thin them out with a bit of milk or water in the morning if they’re too thick for you’re liking. I generally add a touch and love eating them chilled. Topped with yogurt, dairy free almond or natural goat yogurt are my two current faves.
Berries if I can get my hands on them, with the stores super busy at the moment it can be a little tricky, and of course peanut butter. I also just love a little crunch which usually is in the form of roasted pumpkin seeds and cacao nibs. ROASTED pumpkin seeds are so much tastier than raw! If you haven’t roasted up a bag make today the day you do it. Just ten minutes at about 180C (350F) and they will win you over.

Brownie Batter PB Overnight OatsPrint Recipe
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1 tbsp peanut flour
- 1 tbsp milled flaxseed
- 1 tbsp collagen or protein of choice*
- 180ml milk of choice; I used oat milk for these!
Mix everything together!
Cook for 2 minutes; I used gluten free jumbo oats which seem to take longer to cook for some reason?!?
Place in the fridge to chill overnight.
I prefer to cook them first so they thicken up more and are easier to digest.
Serve chilled topped with favourite toppings!
You can reheat these as well if you like in the microwave or in a pot. You will probably need to thin them out with a touch of milk!
*you can leave out the peanut flour and use 2 tbsp of peanut flavoured protein to replace the collage and peanut flour if you don't have any!
