We have our favorites and I’m always twisting things so things are different yet the same. If you are a regular reader or you follow me on social media you know I, as well as my family but mostly me and my girls, love peanut butter and apples. Such a simple delicious combination I’m thinking maybe I need to come up with a challenge for myself next year to find a new different way to enjoy it every week. Haha! A will often ask if she can have an apple and peanut butter for breakfast, or lunch, or snack. You may have even seen the Peanut Butter Apple Crisp I posted recently after both girls came in asking me for peanut butter and apples while I was getting ready to make apple crisp. To make it perfectly acceptable, not that it isn’t, and a little more nutritious to have apples and peanut butter for breakfast I whipped up Apple Peanut Butter Overnight Oats! Yep add in some oats, chia seeds, cashew milk, and powdered peanut butter and you have a protein packed breakfast. Of course mama needs a little more so I add in some of my favorite protein, Vega, to mine. A little more filling than an apple and peanut butter too and so good it hits the spot and is the perfect cure for that peanut butter and apple craving. It’s the perfect start to the day if you ask me!

Apple Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
Makes 1 serving
1/3c oats, gluten free (used Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashion Rolled Oats)
1 TBSP chia seeds
1c- 1 1/2c non dairy milk (used So Delicious cashew milk)
1/2-1 scoop protein powder, optional (I like to use Vega One or Vega Sport Vanilla Protein)*
2TBSP-1/4c powdered peanut butter* (used Peanut Butter & Co Go Mighty Nut Original)
1-2 TBSP peanut butter, optional (used Peanut Butter & Co Smooth Operator)
*If adding in my protein I keep the peanut butter to 2 tablespoons or do half a scoop of protein and 2-3 tablespoons of peanut butter powder. If not adding protein powder I like to use 1/4c of powdered peanut butter.
The night before, or at least 4 hours ahead of time, combine oats, chia seeds, 1 cup of milk, and peanut butter powder. The next morning, or 4+ hours later stir and add in protein powder if adding and or more milk as needed to desired consistency. Chop apple and layer with oats. You can also just place oats over or under chopped apple in a larger jar or bowl. Top or stir in optional peanut butter if desired. Enjoy!

While I do receive some Vega products from time to time, which I listed as an option in this recipe, I do purchase much of it on my own. It has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging. Even though most Vega products used are purchased by myself I do add this disclaimer. I do not make any money off any Vega sales or posts. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.
