Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Overnight Oats

If you were to ask me what my favorite things were to eat, peanut butter and cookie dough will most likely always be included in my answer.

IMG_1903For example, last night we went to Dairy Queen with our friends for some ice cream and no questions asked I was getting a Blizzard.  Love those things.  But then the hard part comes when I have to decide whether I want a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or a Cookie Dough Blizzard…  Toughest decision ever!  Life’s problems, right? Winking smile (FYI, I went with the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup this time.)

Needless to say, what could be better than peanut butter and cookie dough all in one?!  Sounds like heaven to me.  This lady knows what I’m talkin’ about.

I went on to do the next best thing and tried to make my overnight oats resemble peanut butter cookie dough.  Mission accomplished.

Now that it’s getting warmer, I’ve been eating overnight oats a few times a week.  It’s a cold breakfast for a warm day, easy to prepare, and oh so delicious!

    • Ashley says

      you should try it! i also love my overnight oats with greek yogurt, but i didn’t include the yogurt in this version.

  2. Tracie says

    Cannot wait to try this one!
    My favorite things to eat for a snack are Greek Yogurt OR PB Banana wrap.
    Fav. Blizzard is OREO and CC Cookie Dough :)

    Thanks for the recipe this morning!

    Overnight oats is my favorite new breakfast! As a college student, they’re perfect because I’m always in a rush to get to class on time in the morning. Not to mention, it’s HOT in Florida, so cold breakfast food is always welcome :)

    Okay, I know this sounds crazy, but I’ve literally had 2 DQ blizzards in my life. It just wasn’t a place we ever went to when I was growing up! I went once when I was a camp counselor and then once on a road trip when they had the thin mint blizzards! I would choose reeses peanut butter cup, or snickers! And I haven’t ever put PB2 in my overnight oats, I’m so trying this for my breakfast Monday morning! Everyone in class will be so jealous… haha.

    Oh yum! I have been craving dairy queen lately for some strange reason :) A cookie dough blizzard sounds amazing especially since it’s getting warmer! I have yet to try overnight oats too.. super late to this parade so I’ll have to be trying out this recipe this week sometime. Thanks lady!

  6. says

    I love overnight oats, I even ate them all through out the winter. So I’m even more excited that the weather is nice, so I don’t freeze in the morning! Have a fun saturday!

  7. says

    hehe you make me so happy :) So genius and inventive! What a great idea! I am not a huge fan of peanut butter, but cookie dough is ok :) Sometimes too sweet. I like peanut butter cookies though? ;) Doesn’t make much sense does it!?!?!?

    At DQ I never get blizzards! I have never actually ever ordered a blizzard before, just taken spoonfuls of other peoples ;) I am much more of a sundae girl :D And I always get three toppings :D pineapple, strawberry, and chocolate :) hehe!

    So I always struggle between Reese’s pb cup and butterfinger. But I don’t sacrifice. I get them both. And not half/half, I get super specific and make them give me pb cup “with an additional serving” of butterfinger. It costs like $.50 more but who cares. It’s amazing. Also, am trying these overnight oats tomorrow :

    • Ashley says

      that’s a genius idea! i actually really do love butterfinger too. i’m totally going to do your idea next time i get a blizzard!

    Oh girl, I’m LOVING the double peanut butter flavor (PB2 + PB) in this recipe! You’re not going to believe this, but I’ve actually never tried overnight oats! They’re all over the blog world, and they always look incredibly delicious, but I’ve just never been a huge oats girl. I think it’s simply because I have vivid memories of eating think globs of plain oatmeal with raisins growing up (my dad’s specialty) and wishing that I could have a frosting-covered Pop Tart instead! Hehe. I’m going to have to overcome my oat fear next week though, because I’m starting a new meal plan to go along with my new lifting plan. I’ve been warned that oats ARE included! :-p

    I haven’t had a DQ Blizzard in ages because there aren’t any DQ’s in the DC area! I remember loving pineapple Blizzards when I was young though (a bit random, no?), but now I’m pretty sure I’d go with the Reece’s peanut butter cup!

    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend! Hugs! xoxo <3

    • Ashley says

      it’s ok, it’s actually kind of refreshing to know at least one healthy living blogger out there doesn’t love oats. ;) i do hope that one day you’ll start to like them, but it’s all good if you don’t! and of course you’d pick reese’s pb cup… you’re my peanut butter/reese’s twin! hehe.

    Yum! These overnight oats are so good. I didn’t have peanut flour so used 1 T coconut flour instead. Also, used 1 full T chia seeds. Increased the milk (light vanilla soy) to a full cup to give the extra chia somewhere to go. So delicious. Variants of overnight oats will be especially perfect once it gets hot outside. But it doesn’t have to be hot outside to enjoy them (or a Reese’s PB Blizzard at DQ, for that matter!).

  11. Chelsea says

    did you know you can get BOTH blizzards, its just 39 cents extra! I can never decide if I want oreo or cookie dough so I have them put both toppings in mine and I enjoy every single bite :) :)

  12. Lynn says

    This sounds great. I always bring a container of “overnight oats” to work with me for an afternoon snack that is a little bit sweet. I am going to have to give this a try.

  13. says

    I packed this for breakfast this am and it was SO good!!! I added 2 oz of plain Greek yogurt since I used almond milk, which has little protein. I need to get my hands on those stevia drops ASAP.
