Lightened Up PB Protein Oats

Get up ON ME, overnight oats, you beautiful son of a b*tch. What? What’s that even mean? I just made it weird, didn’t I? I just really, REALLY like oats. And overnight oats make my heart soar…especially when it’s layered in flavors of peanut butter. But here’s the problem – since I pay more attention to my portion sizes these days and getting in enough protein, my normal peanut butter oats just don’t hit the mark. If I were to make this dish with normal peanut butter and no protein powder, I would only get 20g of protein in and over 30g of fat. But since I make this dish with sugar-free peanut butter powder AND peanut butter protein powder, I’m chowing down 40g of protein and only 16g of fat, all while saving myself extra calories. I’m not one to obsess over calories, but that’s a big difference that will play a key role in me building muscle and getting optimal results in the gym. You may be different and you may not give two sh*ts about that, but I’m still here to inform. Take it or leave it.

I know I may not have to say this to YOU, but someone may be new here and not understand why a dish with oats and peanut butter is on a paleo website. And that’s fair. But I’ve evolved over the past 10 years and I’ve evolved outside of just eating paleo, so my recipes have evolved with me. That’s all you need to do. Take it or leave it…again. And since that’s boring to talk about and we are better than that, let’s talk about something way better…like the show Atypical!! Have you watched it yet? It’s become our new addiction in this house. We seriously can’t stop watching it. I’ve even started rewatching it just like I used to do with The Office and Parks & Rec before they were so inhumanely pulled from Netflix. If you haven’t started watching it yet, I recommend that you start tonight. I don’t ask much of you, but I’m asking for you to start an amazing show while also making these overnight oats for tomorrow morning. I’m here for you, to support you through these difficult requests. What an amazing friend I am.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. These were absolutely amazing! I didn’t do the toppings and they were still fantastic. Thanks for a great breakfast recipe.

  2. Insanely good! I used 1 tsp of maple syrup instead of 1 tbsp and actually blended all of the ingredients together (oats included) to make more of a thick chia pudding kind of deal and this will for sure be in my weekly breakfast rotation!

  3. Okay, these are like stupid good! I used a chocolate-PB protein powder and I’m pretty sure I am just going to be eating these from now on. Super filling and so tasty!
