I love chocolate combos. Chocolate mint, great! Chocolate raspberry, delectable. But there’s one combo that tops them all: chocolate peanut butter.
This classic duo inspired my breakfast meal prep recipe for this week. Every day I got to enjoy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats. This healthy, vegan, protein packed breakfast tastes like I’m eating my favorite candy (which I may or may not have crumbled on top. Hey, life is all about balance!).
These jars are a great way to start off your morning. The oats provide you with slow burning carbs and fiber, allowing you to feel energized and full throughout the day. These jars will also give you a plant based protein boost from the peanut butter powder and silken tofu. Yes, you read that right, tofu. When blended, silken tofu can add a natural creaminess without the use of dairy. It’s also neutral tasting, making it the perfect blank canvas for your overnight oats. It also makes smoothies super creamy and thick.
It’s also an indisputable fact that any bowl, or jar in this case, NEEDS toppings. Before serving, I love to toss on some cacao nibs and extra peanut butter. Chocolate chips, crushed peanuts, and granola make great additions as well. And a Reese’s peanut butter cup truly makes the perfect addition.
If you’re a chocolate peanut butter like me, I know you’ll love these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats!

In a large bowl*, add rolled oats, cauliflower and salt. Pour over tofu mixture and stir until well combined.

Store jars in the fridge for up to 4 days in the fridge.
I used peanut butter powder to reduce some of the calories, but feel free to use peanut butter depending on your preferences
You can omit the cauliflower if desired. But you cannot taste it and it’s a good way to get in extra fiber, nutrients, and volume to your overnight oats.
Be careful not to overcook the cauliflower or you will be able to taste it.
The oats will expand overnight. Make sure there is enough room in the container for them to do so.
