Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats

in Breakfast, Other

It has been a busy, busy weekend and this coming week should be more of the same.  But I can’t leave you hanging, so I am popping in with a quick (and cozy!) recipe for all of you.  You know how I feel about my overnight oats.  I am basically in love with them ;).  A lot of people switch over to hot oatmeal once the cooler weather hits, but since I am not a fan of warm oats…more overnight oats it is!  Hopefully there are still a few of you out there who are on the overnight oats bandwagon.  And if not, well I suggest you add a little pb and j into your life by incorporating the combo into your warm oats.

Oh, and in case you forgot…overnight oats never seem to cooperate for me or my camera ;).

Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats

Servings: 1


2/3 cup whole rolled oats
1 TB chia seeds (I used milled)
2 TB peanut flour
1 packet Stevia
2-3 TB grape jelly
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk + 1-2 TB

Optional toppings:

Puffed cereal (I used Arrowhead Mills Puffed Kamut, but brown rice would work too)
2 TB peanut flour + water to make peanut “sauce”
2 TB raisins


1. Combine oats, chia seeds, 2 TB peanut flour, and Stevia in a bowl.  Stir until well-combined.

2. Melt grape jelly in microwave for approximately 30 seconds.

3. Stir melted jelly into oat mixture.

4. Add 1/2 cup almond milk and stir until mixed well.

5. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

6. In the morning, add 1-2 TB of additional almond milk and stir well.  It should look like this:

7. Next, add in cereal, peanut sauce, and raisins.

8. Stir it all up and dive on in!

Overnight oats really are the ultimate breakfast on the go.  Every time that I make them in the evening I am embarrassingly excited for the morning to come so that I can eat them- normally at my desk while at work.  This particular batch of oats made me extra excited.  I mean seriously, direct anything involving peanut butter and jelly my way and its pretty much a guarantee that I won’t say no to it.  In fact, I’d do just about anything for some pb & j flavors…well, not anything, but you get the gist!  I have yet to find a way that I do not like the combination of peanut butter and jelly.  It is good in sandwiches, desserts, and now in oats!  Next time I think I am going to toss in a few roasted peanuts, too, for some extra crunch.  It will be just like using crunchy peanut butter :).

Are you still eating overnight oats now that the weather has turned colder?

What is your favorite way to eat the peanut butter and jelly combination?

    I actually like to cook my oats and then eat them cold mixed with yogurt and the toppings. I make a big pot of rolled oats mixed with steel cut and keep them in the fridge. So delish. I am obsessed right now though with pb and j atop my 2 ingredient pancake...and then my oats and yogurt for lunch. I can't not eat my oatmeal so this was the perfect solution when I decided to make the pancake my new breakfast lol. meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles recently posted...Red Mango, Running Gloves And KT TapeMy Profile

      I have never thought to do that. I don't like hot oats, but maybe I would like cooked oatmeal that is cold. I should try it out!

    PB and jelly will always be the best combo for me - sorry pb & chocolate. When I first started making smoothies year back I'd literally have a pb & j one every single day for about 3-4 months straight. So good! Jessie recently posted...I could scream- but I won’tMy Profile

      A pb & j sounds absolutely delicious. And yes, pb and j definitely rivals and pb and chocolate combo.

    I always forget about OOats. I really should jump back on that train since I have a bunch of greek yog in my fridge (which is an essential ingredient in my recipe). Thanks for the inspiration! Ang @ Nutty for Life recently posted...#Fail [#MIMM 16]My Profile

      Thanks Joanna! I pretty much enjoy anything and everything that is pb and j-related :).
  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. November 18, 2013, 11:25 am
    No PB for me, but AB and jelly all the way! I wonder if there's any jam that would go well with Justin's maple AB...
    • ClnEatingVegGrl November 18, 2013, 3:00 pm
      Heck, I don't event think you would NEED jam if you had maple AB...that does so well just on it's own! Maybe pumpkin or apple butter though if you really wanted to add something??
