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.

- 1/4 cup steel cut oats
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (updated, I usually use 1 cup without problems but many people have had it turn out liquidy so start with 2/3 cup and add more if needed)
- 2 tbsp PB2 (divided)
- 1/2 tbsp honey
Mix together the steel cut oats, chia seeds, almond milk, and 1 tbsp. powdered PB2. You can also use regular or reduced fat peanut butter, but I would use 1/2 tbsp. Mix in any fruit you are using as well.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight. Top with remaining prepared PB2 (or 1/2 tbsp. regular/reduced fat peanut butter) and honey.
