Peanut Butter COOKIE DOUGH Overnight Oats

***

I am on a serious coconut milk kick. I love the stuff and our dinners have centered around the creamy milk quite often throughout the past month or two.

Last night was no different. I started by sautéing garlic and a chopped onion in a bit of olive oil before pouring coconut milk over everything and adding ginger, garlic salt and broccoli. I let the broccoli simmer for a while as I cooked up a few pork chops that I then placed on top of the coconut milk-saturated veggies.

It was a delicious dinner!

Dinner was immediately followed by an evening walk with Sadie.

As always, her enthusiasm got the best of her and she got tangled up in her leash no less than five times.

Sadie wasn’t the only one with issues on our evening walk. It was rather chilly last night, so Ryan and I power walked… that is until I started cramping up.

Man down!

Apparently I do not have the ability to power walk so soon after dinner. Ryan got a kick out of my pitiful state. I clearly can’t hang.

Workout

Fortunately my morning workout went a lot better than last night’s walk. I began with 20 minutes on the elliptical before hopping off to complete my upper body superset workout. Not too shabby!

Breakfast

Breakfast this morning was rather peanut buttery!

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough overnight oats + Peanut butter cup coffee

I bought the peanut butter cup coffee from The Fresh Market in St. Pete months ago and totally forgot about it. When I saw it chillin’ in the back of the pantry yesterday, I knew it needed to come out of hibernation this morning.

And now for the peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough overnight oats recipe I promised you guys earlier this week!

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Overnight Oats

The great thing about this recipe is that it’s so easy to customize and make your own. If you love the taste of natural peanut butter and don’t feel like you need any sweetener, you can easily omit the honey.

I loved this dish and it truly reminded me of peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough. I hope you love it as much as I did!

    Mmm!! Those PB overnight oats sound amazing!!! I’m w/ya on being on a PB kick… I concocted some PB pancakes this morning, yum!!

    How long ago did you buy that PB coffee from the Fresh Market? I really want to get some & am going to be near a Fresh Market (it’s an hour & a half from me) this weekend finally, but I see it says “limited time” on the package… hope they still have it, I really want some!!

    What kind of coconut milk do you use for cooking with? I’ve always wanted to try it, but I never know what I”m supposed to buy. They have the cartons and the cans and then even more options once you narrow that part down.

    Only you could make a walking outfit look that cute! I love it :).

    I am not much of an oats fan, but I must say, those peanut butter oatmeal cookie dough overnight oats sound amazing! I am especially loving the addition of honey roasted peanuts on the top! 🙂 I just might have to give them a try! Maybe you will convert me into an overnight oats lover ;).

    About to get off work and now I will be heading straight to the store to buy some chia seeds (hopefully I can find them). I could use a mix up for breakfast besides my usual oatmeal and egg whites.

    I’ve tried overnight oats a few times and liked them but this recipe may make me LOVE them! I thought my dog was the only one that tangles himself (and me) in the leach, glad to know we’re not alone lol 🙂

    Do you have a simple recipe for how you prepare pork chops? I’ve seen them pop up a few times now and a craving has hit.

    I love coconut milk but I always fear I won’t be able to use the whole can when I open one. I think I just need to start using it into more and more of my every day recipes…oatmeal, cereal, smoothies, it’s just so good!

    So, do you put coconut milk in your coffee too? I am trying to get away from the sweet flavored creamer to just black, which I am doing fairly well with but still have to have flavored coffee. Yours doesn’t look black, so curious what you use.

    Yum! I will definitely be trying this! But, do you know a good substitute for chia seeds? I don’t have any, and I have had trouble finding them at my local grocery store.

    I pinned a recipe last night (and tried it this morning) that seems right up your alley. Cook you rolled oats in part coconut milk and part water. I cooked 1/2 cup rolled oats in 1/2 cup coconut milk and about 3/4 cup water. While that’s cooking, toast some almonds (sliced, slivered, whole chopped) and some shredded or flaked coconut. Toss that into the cooked oatmeal and top with a few chocolate chips. Almond Joy Oatmeal! It was so good!

    I totally can’t hang when it comes to power walking either, especially after a nice big dinner! Cramp city. And I can’t wait to try these PB overnight oats! Anything that tastes like cookie dough is right up my alley.

    I love peanut butter and I would love it in my coffee even more! Why can’t they come up with a K-cup in peanut butter flavor? Ugh, this is why I need to go back to a regular coffee machine. Or maybe just buy a peanut butter coffee and use the Keurig individual cup insert thing….the overnight oats look delicious!

    Yum to the oatmeal! I wonder if it would taste just as good with some added banana or berries on top instead of peanuts?! I’m trying to stay away from the peanuts.

    First, peanut butter coffee?!! YES PLEASE. Second, this recipe looks delicious!! PB is my drug and living in Italy, I’m just not understood by anyone so I love that you love it so much too. 🙂

    Sounds so good Julie!! I think I am going to be making this tonight for breakfast in the morning. I have learned that I need to make the overnight oats right before I go to bed or else there is always a 50/50 chance I will eat them before morning. HA!

    These oats look so good! This blog is such a gold mine for peanut butter recipes. I’m still using your “peanut butter cup” smoothie recipe that I discovered about a year ago. 🙂

    Would you recommend anything other than chia seeds to thicken this dish? I don’t have them on hand and am currently too lazy to go to the grocery store! 😉

    Do you think there’s a way to recreate this recipe with quinoia for a wheat free option? Could you just substitute the same amount of quinoia as the oats and all other quantities of the remaining ingreadients remain the same? Looks like a delicious combo!

    Hi Julie! I love your vanilla walnut overnight oats and I can’t WAIT to make these! Question: do you think I could use maple almond butter in place of peanut butter? The hubs & I are crazy about Justin’s maple almond butter and use that on everything, but if I use it, should I still add brown sugar? I love love your blog, although my productivity at work has been decreasing oooooops!

      UPDATE: I made this last night for breakfast this morning and was full for HOURS! I used PB2, and in the morning I added strawberries and chocolate granola!

      Next time I plan on adding cocoa powder so it’s Chocolate PB Oatmeal Cookie Dough 🙂

    Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. I obviously love oatmeal so I will be trying this, but I want to try that coffee. I’m not really a coffee drinker and this has peaked my interest! How many calories are in a cup and do you have to add cream/sugar?

    That oatmeal looks decadent!! Yum!
    I’m staying at a friend’s right now, and they don’t have any peanut butter. And the stores don’t sell peanut butter here in Mexico (where I live) so I’m going a little crazy! Soon enough I’ll be home again!

    I hate to admit it, but I hate oatmeal. I know it’s so good for you, but it’s hard. BUT this recipe looks absolutely delish, so I think I’ll give it another try 🙂
    Have a great day!

    For anyone trying to find that yummy coffee but don’t live by a Fresh Market, I just got some TODAY at Marshalls! It’s wonderful.
    I’m not sure if they all carry it but, it’s worth a shot!

    I have never made overnight oats before (I was always a little afraid of them!) but I decided to try them out tonight! I didn’t have chia seeds, but I did have flax seeds, and my super scientific google search told me that they work but they just don’t absorb as much liquid. So, I made these with slightly less milk and slightly more (flax) seeds… I also used white chocolate peanut butter! Can’t wait to try them out! I licked my spoon after I stirred and it tasted great!

    I have been eyeing the Overnight Oats recipes for the whole time I’ve been reading the blog (+6 months or so). My hubby and I recently changed our diets and are no longer eating any dairy or animal by-products. Therefore, more oatmeal and other minimally processed foods. Anywho-I ADORE peanut butter and one of the reasons I hadn’t tried this before was the Chia Seeds. When I saw this recipe last week it sealed the deal> Went straight to the store, bought some seeds, made oats last night, and they were AMAZING! LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much for sharing with your readers!!!

    Reading some of the comments here, I just wanted to let people know that you really don’t need the chia seeds, so go ahead and make this if you don’t have any. I make overnight oats and never use the chia seeds. I even use more liquid than this recipe suggests and they still thicken plenty! I typically use 1/2 cup oats and 1/2 cup almond milk + 1/4 – 1/3 cup greek yogurt. I do find however, that quick oats thicken up more than the rolled oats. (And with the quick oats, they are ready after only an hour or so, so you don’t HAVE to wait overnight either!! So with or without chia seeds (which of course are still fine and lovely) make some oats!!

    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I have tried a few versions of overnight oats but didn’t like them. I have been making this one for awhile and my twins love them! Made them two days ago and they asked to have it again for breakfast yesterday. Picked them up from school today and they asked to have it for lunch tomorrow. 🙂
