Peanut Butter & Jelly Overnight Oats

Peanut Butter & Jelly Overnight Oats

January 7, 2016


Ok, for all of you who are not overnight oats fans, I apologize if my kick is starting to wear on you. This is my last oatmeal recipe for a while, so thanks for sticking with me for one last flavor! Over the past week I have introduced Spiced Pear + Walnut Overnight Oats and Chocolate Pistachio Overnight Oats. These two were definitely yummy recipes and I loved each of them quite a bit. However, the perfection of the Peanut Butter & Jelly combination just never gets old to me. Now that I have been able to enjoy this childhood sandwich in the form of oatmeal, I am one happy girl. And to top it all off, this recipe is full of fiber, protein and nutrients and no added sugar! Doesn’t get much better than that! 

The “jelly” part of these oats is actually 100% fruit and you can easily alternate berries to change things up a bit if you like. So many jams and jellies are loaded with refined sugar, additives and preservatives. This recipe has none of that!

I know I have said it a million times but overnight oats really don’t get much easier. I make several at a time and have breakfast ready each morning. This PB & J version is the first kind that I actually ate cold instead of warm. If you decide to eat them warm, you may want to wait until you serve them to add the “jelly” part after heating them up. If not, add it when making and grab a spoon and dig in when you are ready. Also, if you have any sort of peanut allergy, add another nut or seed butter and enjoy these oats as well.

So this wraps up a week of almost nothing but oats. The PB&J version here is by far my all time favorite at this point but who knows what other creations are to come! I have plenty more where these overnight oats recipes came from and will be putting together a one stop spot where you can find all of the overnight oats recipes I have on the site. If you love these and want more options, head to where Melissa creates quite a few more of this perfect breakfast!

    I’m loving the texture of these oats! Usually when I see overnight oats they just look slimy. But these look glorious and still chewy (which is how I like my oats). And you can’t go wrong with PB&J!

    • Reply Lorie September 16, 2017 at 1:06 pm

      Great point Laura. That’s what I like as well!

  • Reply Christine September 14, 2017 at 6:24 pm
