Healthy Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe (Vegan, GF): easy vegan overnight oats with almond milk and peanut butter. Healthy overnight oats that taste like peanut butter cookies! Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar Free.
A while back on Instagram, I asked folks, “Do you like overnight oats?” And some of the responses I got were, “HECK YES!!” And “Of course!!!”
Then, I got a few direct messages, like “What are overnight oats?”, “How do you make overnight oats?” and, “Are you really supposed to eat overnight oats COLD?!?!” <– My personal favorite.
Also, I feel you, GURL! A few years back, I learned about overnight oats—scratch that—maybe a decade ago, I heard about overnight oats, and voluntarily/not so voluntarily (out of pure survival instincts) erased the concept from my mind. Like, who in their right mind would want to eat cold oatmeal?!?
Then, I heard about overnight oats again. I heard about how overnight oats are a great healthy breakfast option, that they’re one of the best gluten free & vegan snacks, and a long, long list of more good stuff. You’d think they were better than having banana oatmeal breakfast cookies for breakfast!

But, I was still like, WHO in their right mind would want to eat cold oatmeal?!? And, how can I get my mom on board with this when she literally shivers & shakes and grimaces like a cartoon when I suggest a cold breakfast?
But then, humbly, feverishly, excitedly, I was like, “WAIT, let me give this whole overnight oats thing a shot.” And, my mom will totally give this a shot if I pitch it just right. I.e. If I add peanut butter to the equation. (Spoiler Alert: I’ve also experimented with adding chocolate to the equation as well with these chocolate peanut butter vegan overnight oats
As it turns out: overnight oats are the BEST! (And peanut butter overnight oats are better than the best. Oh… you know what I mean!)
And if you don’t like cold overnight oats—well, one of my amazing IG followers had the best suggestion/solution for cold overnight oat haters: make a batch of overnight oats, ya know, the night before… and grab that jar before heading out the door. Once you get to work, heat it up, stir and enjoy: hot, warm, yummy overnight oats.
Like, mind: blown.

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe (Vegan, GF): easy vegan overnight oats with almond milk and peanut butter. Healthy overnight oats that taste like peanut butter cookies! Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar Free, Healthy.
Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
- ½ cup gluten free rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons unsalted, natural creamy peanut butter*
- 3 tablespoons coconut cream or non-dairy vanilla yogurt**
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1–3 teaspoons pure maple syrup
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk or non-dairy milk
- chopped peanuts or other nuts
- peanut butter drizzle
- If making two medium servings, set aside two small resealable jars. Here are the resealable glass jars that I use. If making one large serving, set aside one large jar.
- Add all ingredients to the jar or jars of your choice, leaving enough room to stir.
- Stir until well mixed. Add any optional toppings except fruit. Seal jars.
- Store overnight in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Overnight oats will become thicker as each day passes. If desired, add non-dairy milk to thin it out. Enjoy cold, or heat in the microwave in 20-second increments until warm. Top with fruit before serving.
