What are overnight oats?

Overnight oats are just what the name describes, oats made overnight by soaking in liquid! In this specific PB&J inspired recipe the old fashioned oats are soaked in yogurt and almond milk overnight or for at least a few hours. The result is a creamy, no-cook, healthy, and delicious breakfast recipe! Overnight oats are also super customizable and can pretty much be made with any flavor combination under the sun.

If you love overnight oats and want to check out other recipes, I’ve got you covered! My apple pie, chocolate chip cookie dough, peanut butter banana, and almond butter berry are all delicious options.

Ingredients needed for Peanut Butter & Jelly Overnight Oats…

These easy overnight oats call for all simple, classic, and pretty much pantry staple ingredients! They’re healthy, refined sugar free, and can also be gluten free if you use certified gluten free oats.

  • Oats: You simply cannot have overnight oats without oats! You will need 2 cups of old fashioned oats.
  • Greek Yogurt: Plain greek yogurt is my secret to perfectly creamy and protein filled overnight oats. 1 cup is the perfect amount!
  • Almond Milk: I always use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in my recipes, but you can honestly use the milk of your choice here. This recipe calls for 1 1/4 cup!
  • Peanut Butter: Peanut butter makes these oats extra creamy and delicious! I recommend using natural and runny peanut butter, with only peanuts and salt as the ingredients. You will need 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp!
  • Jelly: You can use any jam or jelly of your choice in these peanut butter and jelly oats! You can also make a homemade jam if you would like. Add about 1/3 cup!
  • Honey: A bit of honey is used to sweeten things up in this recipe! I love to use honey because it is a natural and refined sugar free sweetener. 3 tbsp is perfect!
  • Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are used here to thicken things up and create the perfect texture. They also have so many health benefits! Add 1 tbsp.
  • Vanilla Extract: Adding vanilla extract gives these creamy oats that classic flavor we all know and love! You will need 1 tsp!
  • Optional Toppings: Fresh berries, chopped peanuts, and extra peanut butter and jelly are all optional but highly recommended toppings. So yummy!

How to make Peanut Butter & Jelly Overnight Oats…

These creamy overnight oats are so so simple to make! They are honestly one of the easiest breakfasts ever. All you do is take less than 15 minutes to mix your ingredients, place them in the fridge, and then you’re ready to enjoy the next morning! And the best part is you’ll have a healthy breakfast prepared for the whole week.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. In a large mixing bowl start by combining the greek yogurt, almond milk, peanut butter, honey, and vanilla extract.
  2. Next add in the oats and chia seeds.  Combine.
  3. Transfer to an airtight container, cover, and place in the fridge overnight or for at least a few hours.
  4. In the morning swirl in the jelly and top with more peanut butter, chopped peanuts, and some berries if you would like. (You could also just mix the jelly straight into the oat mixture before you place in the fridge!)
  5. Enjoy!

Another fun thing to do with these peanut butter & jelly overnight oats is to separate the recipe into different jars. Then this breakfast is truly just grab and go! You can also of course spend a little extra time on the aesthetic and layer your oats, peanut butter, and jam. It’s fun and delicious!

Other flavor variations for Peanut Butter Overnight Oats…

These PB&J Overnight Oats are pretty much peanut butter overnight oats with jelly swirled throughout! So if you love this peanut butter base and want to try it out with a different flavor or your not a a big fan of jelly, just leave the jelly out. Then you can add in anything else you would like to the peanut butter oats!

I suggest banana or fresh berries, chocolate chips, cinnamon, caramel sauce, or some mixed nuts. All would be absolutely scrumptious additions to this healthy oatmeal recipe!

PB&J Overnight Oats FAQs…

Do you eat these Peanut Butter & Jelly Overnight Oats cold?

Yes, I always eat my overnight oats cold! I’m sure you could also warm these up, but since they do have greek yogurt in them I don’t personally love the idea of that. But you could of course try it out!

Can I use a different type of oats in this healthy breakfast recipe?

I have only tested this recipe with old fashioned oats, but I do think quick oats or rolled oats would also work. If you try it out and it is a success … let me know!

How do I best store these overnight oats?

You can store these oats in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week!
