Goodbye, boring breakfast! Hello, chocolate chip cookie dough PROTEIN overnight oats. I joined the overnight oats craze years ago. I tried so many different recipes. I loved pretty much all of them. I got burned out on oatmeal in general so I switched to other recipes. Well, my overnight oats are back! This time with a recipe more EPIC than before.
I am a huge fan of natural peanut butter. I make sure to read the ingredients before purchasing. The only ingredient in true natural peanut butter is PEANUTS. With some brands, it may have peanuts and salt. If it has anything else keep looking! I pass on the No-Stir “natural” peanut butter because every single one I have seen has added sugar!
I love to meal prep in advance. It saves me so much time throughout the week. I also love to come home from a long day of work and have absolutely nothing to do! The same goes for my breakfast. With these overnight oats, I can prep enough for the weekday on Sunday and just grab a jar from the fridge each morning.
The vanilla and butter extracts really go to work in this recipe! I use both of the extracts a lot for baking. They really are key to obtaining the cookie dough taste.
The last win for this recipe is the added protein. I generally work out in the mornings and eat my breakfast immediately after. This recipe makes the perfect post-workout meal.
