This silky smooth Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Shake tastes like a decadent dessert but is secretly packed with powerful ingredients! It has no added sugars, is vegan, and it’s low-in-fat, gluten-free, and so simple to make!
Who loves peanut butter? Hands raised? Because mine are!
When I was a kid, I used to eat so many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, you’d have thought that’s all my mom could make. But no, I just loved them dearly and have always loved the classic PB & J flavor. You likely already know that if you’ve seen my homemade Low-Fat PB&J spread, though.
Speaking of that recipe, today’s shake recipe includes the same star product along with another one of my favorite products of all time….
Jif Peanut Powder and Silk non-dairy almond milk!
Have you all had this tasty peanut powder yet? I just love it!
Jif’s new peanut powder is a star peanut powder on the market (and there are so many options now) because guess what it’s made of? JUST 100% peanuts—that’s it!
Jif peanut butter was the only peanut butter I ever grew up eating, so it’s great to finally be able to enjoy this brand again in the form of this simple, one-ingredient peanut powder product that I can use in just about anything.
Jif’s peanut powder definitely fits into my new simplicity mantra regarding my grocery budget, and I love that it’s rich in flavor but also very easy to digest, unlike high-fat foods with oils and excess calories.
Quick Facts: Jif’s Peanut Powder has 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter and is only made of real, non-genetically modified peanuts. It’s packed with 8 grams of protein per serving for only 2 grams of fat and 0 grams of added sugar (the 1 gram is naturally occurring in peanuts). You can also smell the fresh peanut smell as soon as you open the bag!
Another one of my favorite simple products is Silk non-dairy unsweetened almond milk.
Silk unsweetened non-dairy milk is free of sugar, animal products, gluten, and is a great product to use in any smoothie or shake out there. It’s also free of controversial additives and is a great product to keep on hand for quick recipes like the one I’m sharing today.
Although I do like to make my own non-dairy milk options on occasion, Silk is a great store-bought brand to keep on hand that even my family happens to love!
So, let’s make up something tasty with these fabulous ingredients, shall we?:)
I created this Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Shake recipe because I have always loved peanut butter cookies, but as we all know, peanut butter is usually always better with chocolate, right?
To make this smoothie taste like a cookie, I added some whole grain rolled oats for a creamy, dough-like texture and to add more fiber, protein, and overall nutrition to the smoothie. For the chocolate flavor, I used raw cacao powder and raw cacao nibs which are also both low in fat per serving but full of nutrients and only contain one ingredient: raw cacao.
And since this recipe has no added sugar, we’re just using real fruit to make our smoothie sweet. Are you ready? Let’s get to it!
I don’t know about you, but I could go for this for breakfast, a snack, and dessert too! Enjoy the recipe!:)
- 1 very ripe chopped, frozen banana
- 1 teaspoon raw cacao powder (you can add more if you want)*
- 1 heaping tablespoon of Jif plain peanut powder
- 2 tablespoons rolled oats (or you can use more if you want it more filling) **
- 1 teaspoon raw cacao nibs***
- dash of vanilla extract
- 1 cup Silk unsweetened non-dairy almond milk
- (optional): tiny drop of alcohol-free stevia for extra sweetness
- Add all the ingredients to your blender in the order listed.
- Blend on low, then progress to high. If you have a Vitamix, use the tamper. If you don't have a Vitamix, you may need to stop the blender and stir in between since we're using less liquid to make sure the shake stays nice and thick.
- You may also experiment with making this in a food processor or Nutribullet but I personally haven't done either (yet!).
- Scoop into your favorite parfait or shake glass, insert a spoon, and dive in!
- *If you don't have raw cacao powder on hand, use unsweetened cocoa powder as a 1:1 ratio.
- **Use certified gluten-free oats if necessary though regular oats do not naturally contain gluten unless processed with wheat.
- ***Dairy-free chocolate chips (vegan chocolate chips) may be substituted for the raw cacao nibs but this will make it higher in sugar since chocolate chips have added sugar or sugar alcohols.
If you want to try Jif’s new peanut powder, head on over to your local Walmart where it’s found with the peanut butter products. I found it on the top shelf at my local store near other peanut powder products. I just love that I can find a simple product by a company I grew up eating that I know is made with only one ingredient.
*Do note, the chocolate flavor by Jif is lightly sweetened with a dash of sugar and semi-sweet chocolate, so choose the plain flavor featured here in this recipe if you’d like a plain, unsweetened peanut powder.
You can also find Silk’s non-dairy unsweetened beverages at your local Walmart too. These two products are two of my favorites to keep on hand, so I always make sure I pick some up along with fresh fruit, greens, veggies, oats and other whole grains, lentils, beans, peas, potatoes, and other simple ingredients that are packed with nutrition.
In case you’re new to using peanut powder, here are some easy ways you can start using it:
- oatmeal (as I mentioned here)
- green smoothies
- baked goods
- homemade peanut butter (Just mix Jif’s powder with water or non-dairy milk for instant peanut butter!)
- PB & J spread
- to make no-bake desserts
- anything else you want!
