What do you get when you mix chia seeds, yogurt, peanut butter, cocoa powder, rolled oats and some stevia? THIS incredible NO BAKE, Delicious, Yummy, Fantastic, breakfast or snack or dessert!
I don't know about you but a "no baking required and make ahead before I go to bed" recipe is a winner in my book! I really love the Chia Mango recipe I gave you a few days ago but nothing beats peanut butter and chocolate for breakfast.
Um.... let me think about that again.....yep, nothing. 🙂
Would you believe me if I told you in this tiny little jar there are 10 grams of fiber and 14 grams of protein? Yep, true!!
How could you not love this? To good to be true? Not at all! A bit high in fat, but once a week wouldn't do any damage to your weight loss efforts.
- ¼ cup rolled oats
- ¼ cup Greek yogurt, plain, nonfat
- ⅓ cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- ½ tablespoon peanut butter, all natural, no sugar added
- 2 droppers (¾ full ) [url href="http://iherb.com/p/8717?at=0&rcode=yaj035" target="_blank"]Chocolate Liquid Stevia[/url]
- In a small mason jar or bowl ,mix together all ingredients until incorporated. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Enjoy your breakfast in the morning! Or enjoy for a dessert or snack, tastes like a tapioca or rice pudding!
Is the almond milk unsweetened or regular? Thank you again for all of your wonderful recipes...you have helped change the health of my family!
Yes I use unsweetened, thank you!
Looks so yummy! Can't wait to try. We don't use Stevia. Can you tell me about how much honey I would use in place of the Stevia (I'm not sure how sweet it is or how much 3/4 of a drop is). Thanks.
Here's a stevia conversion chart to help you: http://www.stevia.com/Stevia_Sugar_Substitute.aspx
I eat chia pudding all the time for an evening snack, with or without PB2. It sets up in a couple of hours and keeps my blood sugar stable all night without many calories. I think the texture is like tapioca pudding. Love it!
A cautionary note: It can cause some intestinal distress if you aren't used to the chia seeds.
This looks absolutely delicious! Thank you for sharing!!
Here is a link to the truth about PB2:
Thank you! I've always stayed away from PB2 because of the sugar in it. Thanks for sharing the link.
No problem, you are so very welcome!
Looks yummy!! Is this recipe a whole serving?
yes one serving.
Do you think the liquid vanilla Stevia would work as well as the chocolate? I only have the plain liquid and the vanilla cream liquid. :/
I'm sure it would taste just as good.
How long do you think this would last in the refrigerator? I make all of our breakfasts up once a week (things that you eat cold) and was wondering if this would be a good addition.
I'm not sure, 3 days would be my guess.
Have now had this for breakfast twice after my for mile morning run. Thank you so much for the recipe. I can't believe how delicious it is and with the peanut butter and greek yogurt adding all that extra protein - I don't burn through it as quickly as I would a regular bowl of cereal with fruit.
I'm so glad! I love it to, very filling and love having it ready in the morning!
Okay - I am making this in a few minutes but am going to use Justin's All Natural Chocolate Peanut Butter (which does have some sugar added) I am all of out plain peanut butter. I only have Justin's Chocolate PB and Justin's Maple Almond Butter on hand. Thanks for sharing!
Great recipe! Can you suggest an alternative for the yogurt? I need to avoid dairy. Thanks
I think you could replace it with more almond milk instead. I haven't tried that but I really think it will work. Let me know if you do.
This looks so YUMMY!!!! Really great recipe idea.
A question.. I see that your chia seeds look gray, mine are black..are there different types?
I found mine at Whole Foods and it says Organic Whole Chia Seeds on it. Not sure if other brands are different but these are in fact gray in color.
This looks like a good recipe for me to have on the morning of an intense bike ride!!
U can also use an oil of choice instead of the water. Thank you for a yummy chia dessert idea!
Pb2 is all natural. Roasted peanuts slow roasted then pressed to remove fat & oil. Plain or wth cocoa beans.2Tbl. 45 calories 1g fat 6 carbs 1g fiber 4g protien
Mix 2Tbl of pb2 wth 1 Tbl water stir until smooth.
PB2 isn't 100% natural, it does have added sugar. If you buy organic all natural peanut butter, the ingredients are just peanuts, with the healthy oils still in tact.
Cannot WAIT to try this!!
THis sounds yummy!! I cant wait to make it!! Have you ever tried PB2? It would work great in this recipe & cut some of the fat. It's a great PB alternative especially on apples or bananas!!
I've heard of it but haven't tried it. I need to look at what ingredients are in it first. thanks!
I believe it has sugar in it.
I agree pb2 should work great, cut even more using the choc pb2, love that pb2!
