Overnight Peanut Butter & Honey Chia Oats

Overnight oats are one of my go-to breakfasts and lately on mornings where I have a long run planned or a harder workout, I am loving this combination of oats, chia seeds, peanut butter, almond milk, and fruit. It is a little higher in calories/points than many overnight oats recipes I have used in the past, but it really provides the energy boost I need during a harder workout. Moreover, I have found I am not starving immediately after, which is a common problem when I have eggs or a lighter breakfast. You can use PB2 or regular nut butter in the recipe depending on your preferences, but PB2 is definitely a way to keep the calories lower. If you opt for regular nut butter, I would reduced it to just one tablespoon. This adds around 45 calories.

What are your favorite breakfasts on longer or harder exercise days?

    Did you mean the decimal point? Is this really 48.6 calories? Doesn’t seem to track with 8 WW points.

    Do you normally eat this cold?

      I normally eat it cold, especially now that it is getting warm out. However if you prefer it hot you can pop it in the the microwave for 1-2 minutes, adding a touch of milk if needed.

    This looks delicious! I think the carb count on this is wrong though. There are 29 g of carbs in a quarter cup of steel cut oats alone, so I’m not sure how total carbs could be 11.1 g?

    I made this and put in in the fridge for 7 hrs, and the steel cut oats was still very hard. The only option was to cook it, or leave it in the fridge and try it again tomorrow morning. I like it using regular oats, but this was too hard. Anyone else think it was really- uh -chewy?

    My husband has been into oatmeal lately. I’ve
    Been doing overnight in the crock pot.
    He has been enjoying that. I lovedthis recipe.
    I made it today. I looked at it after 4 hours.
    It is still very milky. Hoping by morning it will
    Thicken.
    Did I miss a step? Do I need to cook it ?
    I love this site. I use so many recipes.
    Thanks
    Cheryl
