Peanut Butter + Jelly Overnight Oats

Preparing food ahead of time is really key for me to eat healthy during the week.  I am always rushing out the door in the morning to get to work and have no time to make a healthy breakfast.

Overnight oats are so simple to make and I love that I can make a big batch on Sunday to eat throughout the week.  I’ve made tons of different flavors and used lots of toppings, but this peanut butter and jelly version is SO good.  The peanut butter also keeps me full longer.

With only four ingredients, you made even have most of the ingredients at home already.  Try whipping up a batch for a delicious, healthy breakfast for the whole week.  This recipe generally makes 4 or 5 breakfasts depending on how hungry I am.  You can cut it in half or double it without a problem to fit your family.

Ingredients:

3 cups quick oats

3 cups almond milk – regular milk will probably work too

2-3 Tbsp peanut butter

1 tsp jelly per serving

In a large bowl or jar, add the oats and pour the milk over them.  Mix well.

Heat the peanut butter in the microwave for 20 seconds or so until it is slightly runny.  Scoop in the peanut butter and stir it into the oats.  It will be a pretty thick mixture with a little bit liquid on top.  The liquid will get absorbed overnight.

Store the oats in the refrigerator, covered, overnight.  When you’re ready to eat, spoon out 1/2 cup of oats or more.  You can eat them cold or warm up in the microwave.  Top with jelly and extra peanut butter if you want. Enjoy!
