These chocolate peanut butter overnight oats are a breakfast option you’ll look forward to any morning. Plus, they are supercharged with CocoaViaTM Cardio Health powder to add powerful cocoa-based flavanols.
I have partnered with CocoaVia to share this recipe and the benefits of CocoaViaTM Cardio Health powder.
Breakfast is an important part of the day. Not only does a balanced meal start you on the right track, but it’s also an opportunity to meet a good portion of your daily nutrient needs. Aiming to have carbohydrates, protein, and fat at each meal can help meet these main food groups. That’s why I love these chocolate peanut butter overnight oats as a go-to option for mornings. It checks all these boxes and can also be tailored to your taste preferences.
How to Balance Your Meals
When you’re thinking of the foods to eat each day for a balanced eating pattern, you should be targeting:
- Protein Foods
- Dairy or Dairy Alternatives
And of course, don’t forget the occasional sweet treat. We have the five main food groups, but there are other foods you likely eat often that aren’t quite in those categories. Healthy treats like dark chocolate are a simple example.
Overnight Oats as Part of a Balanced Diet
In this recipe, we target 4 of the 5 main groups.
- Fruits = blueberries
- Grains = oats
- Protein Foods = peanut butter, Greek yogurt, milk
- Dairy or Dairy Alternatives = Greek yogurt, milk
Plus, there’s the bonus of the flavanols from the cocoa extract powder.
Whole Foods & Supplements
When each of these food groups are met consistently, you’re setting yourself up for success by reaching your target nutrient needs. It will help you have more energy, a good memory and benefit your heart and gut health.
But while whole foods are the most important aspect of a balanced diet, supplements can also play a valuable role. None of us are perfect, so even when we’re targeting the main food groups, sometimes a little boost of nutrition can help to fill gaps.
