Tasty & filling they are a great choice for a Weight Watchers breakfast that you can prepare the night before and that will keep you satisfied for hours.
Overnight oats are a popular choice for people following the Weight Watchers plan and have been for some time .... and understandably so!
They're a perfect 'grab and go' breakfast, they're simple to make and you can play around with lots of flavour combinations.
Now, I love Peanut Butter, I love banana & I love chocolate so I decided to combine all three ingredients to make these tasty pb2 overnight oats for breakfast.
And it works ..... it really does!
I've made them a number of times fiddling around with the ingredients & quantities to come up with something that is both tasty but not too high in SmartPoints.
So are overnight oats good for you?
Overnight oats are undoubtably a good breakfast option ..... especially when compared to the usual sugar laden breakfast cereals.
Oats are nutritious, full of fibre and protein and they will keep you satisfied for many hours! And if you are following the Purple plan, they are zero SmartPoints meaning that many overnight oats recipes are very low SmartPoints!

Which Peanut Butter should I use?
As any peanut butter fan who is following the WW plan knows, peanut butter is really high in SmartPoints! Boo hiss!
For this recipe, I wanted the taste of PB without the SmartPoints so I used peanut butter powder to achieve this.
Powdered peanut butter tends to be around 80% - 90% lower in fat than 'normal' peanut butter! You can add it to smoothies & shakes or to recipes like this one or you can mix it with a little water to make it into a spreadable butter.
I used PB2 Original Powdered Peanut Butter but you can also get PB2 Chocolate Peanut Butter Powder . If you were to use the PB2 chocolate peanut butter powder it would increase the Points in this recipe by an extra 1 SmartPoint.
I would therefore suggest that if you use an alternate brand of peanut butter powder in this recipe you should work out the SmartPoints before using. I used 2 tablespoons of PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter which worked out as 1 SmartPoint.

Which chocolate sauce can I use?
There are a number of sugar free chocolate sauces / syrups that you can use in this recipe that work out at 0 SmartPoints per portion!
Good choices if you are based in the US are Hershey's Sugar Free Chocolate Syrup, Smucker's Sugar Free Chocolate Sundae Syrup or Pyure Sugar Free Chocolate Flavored Syrup. These three syrups all work out at 0 SmartPoints if you use 1 teaspoon!
I used Sweet Freedom Choc Shot (perfect if you are based in the UK!) which works out at 0 SmartPoints per ½ teaspoon.
