We’ve been a big fan in our household of peanut butter chocolate overnight oats ever since trying it.

Can you go wrong with the chocolate and PB combo? I sure don’t think so!

This easy-to-make breakfast is of course, delicious.

It’s also filled with fiber from the chia seed, protein from the collagen peptides, healthy fats from the peanut butter, and awesome carbohydrates from the banana and oats.

All prepped the night before to simplify your busiest of mornings!

What is overnight oatmeal?

If you’ve never tried overnight oatmeal before it’s actually quite simple.

The basic ingredients are rolled oats (AKA old-fashioned oatmeal), chia seeds (to absorb liquids), and milk.

But we don’t keep it basic here.

Banana, peanut butter, cocoa powder, and collagen peptides are a must in our breakfast bowls.

The collagen peptides add no flavor whatsoever, but I love adding it for a bit more protein, plus the skin, joints, and nail health benefits.  We buy and use this brand and haven’t turned back since adding it into our diets.

Banana – If the banana is not your thing, try using canned pumpkin instead. It adds a slight sweetness and similar texture.

Peanut butter – Substitute in any nut or seed butter for the peanut butter

Rolled oats – Quick oats work as a substitute here!

Cocoa powder – Cacao powder is a perfect substitute, or to keep it chocolate free use carob powder for a similar flavor profile.

Collagen peptides – An unflavored protein powder works as a great sub!

Almond milk – Use your favorite milk option here.

Sounds yummy! Can you talk more about what differences you notice in you and your kiddos since adding collagen peptides? I’m intrigued!

Hey Erin! I am not super consistent about using it daily (and neither are my kids), however my husband is and when we run out and he doesn’t have it for a few days to a week, he definitely notices it in his joints, especially when lifting weights. They begin it ache and just not feel as good. So for him, it’s a great thing to take consistently!
