I am a sucker for anything peanut butter. I mean let’s get real…like 50% of the recipes on FFF are peanut butter related. Sorrynotsorry.

This recipe has a peanut butter base and an extra oomph of protein made with…

I used whey protein in this recipe, but feel free to try a plant-based version, in case you’re looking for a vegan-friendly recipe! Just note that you made need to add a few more tablespoons of almond milk because plant-based protein powder is a bit more dense!

The “jelly layer” is a mixture of real life strawberries and some all-natural preserves. 

I’m the type of girl who doesn’t like to mix my layers. My sister on the other hand- is a mixer. I remember growing up we would make sundays…and she’d mix it all together. Me? No thank you! I like to keep em’ separate. 

If you are anti-jelly (I know you people exist), feel free to just use fresh strawberries!

Fun Fact #3: I’m a DD…and hate it. 

Yah, I went there. You guys know I am all about body positivity, but often times I find my boobs bringing me down and getting in the way (literally). I know, I know. Most people would love to have a huge rack, but not me! I was a late bloomer and didn’t get my period until I was 16, which meant I was pretty much flat-chested until my senior year of high school. Entering college, my chest was a solid C cup, which was propionate for my body. When I went through my eating disorder, my boobs were the last thing to go and the never fully went. Long story short, when I gained my weight back, a lot of it went to my chest…even more than before! Today, I am a DD and hate it. I can’t remember the last time I wore a real bra because I prefer to smash them into my chest and make them look as small as possible. They get in the way when shopping for clothes and working out. Anyone with large breasts knows that flowy tops don’t really work because they make you look “frumpy.” For me, the tighter the shirt the better….but I’m pretty conservative with how I dress and hate tight shirts. As for working out….jumping jacks. Enough said.

The worst part is- it’s really hard for me to find proper sports bras because I am 34 inches around, but my cup size is huge. Usually what happens is that I find a great cup size, but then the inches around is way too big. Fail. Anyways- As you can see, I’m still working on being okay with “my new friends,” and how they make my body look. I’m not asking you to feel bad for me…because that’s just how my body is and I’m working on loving my top half for the way it is 😀

PS: I don’t mean to be so negative, but I wanted to share my true feelings on being a DD.

    Thanks for the delicious recipe Lee, I’Ll be sure to try them, I love PB and strawberries together 😀

    One of my sisters is a 38 DD (if I converted correctly she is 85 F under European bra size), and she has struggled with having so large breasts as well. They made her feel insecure and very body conscious (since she has a normal body and these breasts are big for her other proportions) ever since they appeared. There are many cuts and types of shirts she doesn’t like to wear due to them, so I understand you.

    One of my high school friends was very tiny (around 5″) and still had DDs, it was very awkward for her since they were so obvious and disproportionate for her tiny frame. She couldn’t buy bikinis because there was at least 2-3 sizes between the top and bottom. After graduation she had breast reduction surgery because her big breasts were hurting her back already at age 18. I’ve met her since, her new breasts look natural with her petite body, and she is very happy with them. I’m usually not for surgeries, but in her I could see it really made a positive difference.

        LOL genetics are crazy!! My mom has the smallest boobs in the family (I have 2 sisters and she has the smallest cups), I’m a 36A and my other sister is a C, but my poor other sister really got it.

    I SO get you. I am a sophomore in high school (15) and a 32DD. Sports bras started out as a necessity due to the fact that I run cross country, but I now wear them about 98% of the time. You wouldn’t think your rack could actually get in your way, but OH MY GOODNESS IT CAN! I feel ya!

    • says

      We should start a sports bra club!!! Sometimes I double up…but then it hurts my neck. Can I just say that the best part about working from how is no-bra Mondays?! Let them be freeeeee 😛

    Ok, so I am weirdly obsessed with overnight oats recipes. I love reading them and looking at them, but do not make them! Ha! I love oatmeal and all things peanut butter…but overnight oats? I don’t understand eating cold oatmeal. What I do is make the oatmeal fresh that morning with all of the listed ingredients, nice and warm. I guess I am in the minority since most people are also in love with overnight oats. I wonder if there are people out there like me who make warm “overnight oats?”

    • says

      Not weird at all. Some people just don’t like cold oats and that’s totes okay. I could look at picture after picture of oatmeal and be the happiest girl on earth.

    • says

      I’m totally with you on the icky factor or cold oats. I legit make ‘overnight hot oats” as I cook up my protein zoats (just the main base), leave them in the fridge overnight and reheat in the morning. I really like the gummier texture rather then the flowy one so by precooking them then reheating without any added liquid makes them nice and ooey gooey and dense. I add my fruit in the last few minutes of cooking so it’s hot and melty but not disintegrated ( still like chunks of melted fruit) and then add my nut butter and any other toppings. 😀

      As much as I love all things oats, the though it it cold makes me gag a wee bit. I need it burn my face off hot, even in the summer time ahaha.

      These oats look fantastic though and can probably be done the same way, just plop your pre-made oats on top of the strawberry layer and heat that way so when you dig your spoon in you would get the melted ‘jam’ on the tip of every spoonful and some of it would seep up into the peanut butter oat portion. Yum!

    I recently just went to buy new bras and I’m a 32 DD. When I was heavier in college my girls were out of control. I played field hockey in college and would wear 2 sports bras to keep them glued to my chest. It was pretty comical. I used to not be a fan of them, but now I am okay with them, even though they are a little deflated and have stretch marks. HA…we have our moments, especially when it comes to bathing suit shopping…UGH!

  5. Lynn says

    I have had success with buying stretchy sports bras and wearing two (double bag) when I work out. Or a thinner one under a Tata Tamer from Lululemon. I just make sure to wear two different types of straps. Jumping jacks? No problem!

  6. Kelsey Yoki says

    Hey yo. We all totally have those moments. And that’s fine. I don’t really like my girls either. The size has fluctuated more than I care for them to (because bras are EXPENSIVE), and I HATE shopping for bras. Speaking of, I’m in need of new ones right now.
    The world would be easier if sport bras could be worn in the business office world…
    Oh, and these oats? Making them ASAP. Need to get some berries + jam in our house!

  7. says

    Um. Dang. This looks freaking awesome. That first photo with the peanut butter dripping over? Whoa. And I think we all have our body issues no matter what. I would love some more up top and wish I could squeeze my fat all up into there!

  8. Amanda says

    I think bra shopping sucks universally and I’m between an A and B! Funny story – last year I was bra shopping for my wedding dress and the girl at Victoria Secret looked at me before sizing me and said I was definitely a D cup. Umm no more like an A!

    BTW do you ever make your overnight oats in almost empty peanut butter jars? I have a stash and my husband thinks I’m crazy! He just doesn’t understand.

    • says

      Wow that chick was WAYYYYY OFF. OMG I SAVE ALL THE PB JARSSS and Blake get’s so pissed. One day he went in to “clean out my collection” and I almost cried.

  9. says

    So you don’t put yogurt into your overnight oats? I like th thicker texture it gives the oatmeal!
    Can you imagine that I’ve never had a real pb&j sandwich?? It’s not a thing here in Germany – not at all! Like apparantely all cool things from the US… PB for example only got famous over the couple last years now, and other nut butters are just starting to popping up in health food stores (but are insanely expensive!). But on the other hand, we have quark! Ha! 😀

    • says

      I do use yogurt in some of my overnight oat recipes…I just didn’t in this one 😀 YOU’VE NEVER HAD A PB AND J. OH EM GE GIRL FRAN. Do you just make your own nut butters then? Also- what the what is quark?

  10. says

    Uhhh hows about you just give me some of your boobage bc dis gurl struggles to fill her A cups lololol. Late bloomer?!

    I didn’t have a pb&j until a few years ago but I’ve been making up for it since then :) this would be so good with my grandma’s strawberry jam!

    • says

      doode I was a mega late bloomer. Senior year of high school i woke up with a c cup. I didn’t get my period Til I was 16…sooo I think that explains it! Also your parents defs deprived you of the greatest food on earth!

  11. Katie says

    One of my best friends had the same type of issue & ended up getting a reduction since it was much needed! She said it was the best decision she’s made for her body & health since she’s very fit but still had discomfort!

  12. says

    I am anti jelly haha. So i would definitely be skipping that part for more strawberries. My husband loves it though and sometimes he will try to get me to eat it especially if it is a special kind like the black raspberry jelly his aunt made. But I still think it is weird and gross. I also almost always heat up my overnight oats. Not so they are hot but just so they are warm!

    I also have large tatas and they can definitely get in the way when I am working out! I went to Soma for the first time last month and found out I was wearing the really wrong size. I went down a band size and up 2 cup sizes. My bra definitely feels a lot better now though!

  13. Lauren says

    I’m a 32DDD so yeah, I feel you! It is incredibly difficult to find clothes that fit right and I’ve basically resigned to feeling disproportionate for the rest of my life :) Don’t even get me started on bathing suits or sports bras and cute little yoga shirts? Not gonna happen. The good news is, every time I have admitted my size to another female, they are totally shocked so I guess it’s not as overt as I think it is :)

  14. Molly says

    Sorry about the totally late post, but I just stumbled upon your site! How far in advance could I make this? Could I make for the week and keep in the fridge, or is it literally overnight and wouldn’t be as good a day or two later? Thanks!!

  15. Kelly Renée says

    So, I’ve made this several times now and all I can say is THANK YOU for sharing this recipe. DE-licious!!!

    Also, before my most recent health journey in the last 2-ish years, I was a DD (and I’m seriously thanking God that’s no longer the case). So I totally feel your pain (literally) and wanted to let you know that Athleta has amazing sports bras of all sizes, and they make ones for that size that are great for high impact exercising and reduce the bounce. Just sayin’ 😉

    • says

      YAY!!!! So glad you love this recipe. Overnight Oats are still my favorite and go-to breakfast! I’m glad you can relate with my DD issue, but happy that yours went down a bit 😛 #nooneelseunderstands
