Rich and creamy and full of plant-based protein, these easy Low-Fat Vegan Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are the perfect breakfast for anyone on the go.
This isn't a new recipe. I actually created this recipe waaaaay back in the day when I first started blogging. Those posts are pretty painful for me to look at (bad lighting, weird angles, horrible formatting), but I also love comparing those posts to where I'm at now and seeing how much I've grown and learned since then. I know so much more about lighting, angles and styling when it comes to photography and I've finally made some progress in the coding and SEO of my posts so that people can find my recipes easier. Yay!
Since these Low-Fat Vegan Peanut Butter Overnight Oats have been such a hit on Pinterest, I thought it would be fun to make them for breakfast and rephotograph them so that people actually have some nicer pictures to look at when they end up on my blog. It was fun to whip up one of my old recipes and I also learned that I left out a key ingredient in the original recipe: sweetness! For me, I can eat things that are pretty bland, but I'm sure other people would like something a little more sweet when it comes to these Low-Fat Peanut Butter Overnight Oats. Either way, the added sweetener is optional, so do whatever suits you best!
When I don't incorporate sweeteners to my oats, I almost always use ripe bananas or dried fruit to add a little bit of natural sweetness, so those are also great options when it comes to these Low-Fat Vegan Peanut Butter Overnight Oats. I can't remember the last time I didn't whip an overly ripe banana into my hot oatmeal or add in some chopped fruit and raisins to overnight oats. I just need sweetness and texture in my first meal of the day or else I'm never quite satisfied.
If you're also looking to get more plant-based protein in your life, these Low-Fat Vegan Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are a great option. The peanut flour provides 16 grams of protein alone, not counting the protein from the oats and chia seeds. To add even more nutritional oomph, top these oats off with some chopped almonds or walnuts, ground flax seed, or an extra drizzle of regular nut butter. Even some cacao powder (or cocoa powder) would be a great add in for a Reese's peanut butter type taste. Get creative! If you're new to this blog, or just haven't seen my older posts, I hope you enjoy this repost of my Low-Fat Vegan Peanut Butter Overnight Oats!
