These 6-ingredient peanut butter and jelly overnight oats are the perfect way to start off your morning!
They’re made with a peanut butter overnight oatmeal base and topped with your favorite jelly giving you tons of fiber, protein, and a whole lotta lovin’.
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. Sorry not sorry.
This overnight oat recipe gives me so much life. It’s both gluten-free and vegan and I can so get down with that. The base of this peanut butter recipe is peanut butter and then we swirled in some jelly.
In these photos, we used blueberry jelly, but any kind works. You could even use homemade preserves like we did in THIS recipe.
Here’s What You Need
- rolled oats
- vanilla almond milk, unsweetened
- chia seeds
- maple syrup
- all natural peanut butter
- Jelly or 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!
PB and J Overnight Oats
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon jelly or preserves
- Place all ingredients minus the jelly in a glass Tupperware and mix. Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. In the morning, swirl in some jelly and enjoy cold!
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.
This looks so good! What a great breakfast meal prep for the week!
I dislike oatmeal – but I LOVE this recipe! It’s a perfect balance of flavors and texture. Thank you for sharing!
would this recipe work with sunflower butter?
Do you ever use PB2 for recipes? I am wondering if it would work for this. Also loving the said DD conversation. I have gone between a 38D and 38DD and struggle for a good sports bra is real!
Hi! We don’t use it often is recipes, but I do love it! If you use it in place of the peanut butter, you may need a little additional liquid!
Super yummy, delicious with frozen berries instead of jelly. Mine needed a bit more milk as it was a bit too ‘gluey’ in consistency for my liking!
Definitely recommend to all PBJ lovers! 🙂
I had the same boob story and had a breast reduction. BEST. DECISION. EVER! I obviously recommend it. You will wake up happy (sore) but seriously happy. Worth the pennies and the pain. Consider it but research to find a great breast surgeon. Ciao!
This is sooooo delish!
I hear ya on the annoyance of being large chested. I’ve always hated it. Never able to wear the cute shirts or the button downs. In high school I swore by sports bras but flattening your chest like that all the time just isn’t good for them. But I always felt like my bras never gave me support, I was always hunched forward and had the worst shoulder back pains. Honestly i just wasn’t wearing the right size. Once I figured it out, it changed everything for me.. posture, back problems, even the kind of shirts I could wear (with the right type of bra). I use this site for my real bra size https://www.lindasonline.com/bra-fitting-calculator.html. There’s a couple others that are great too and accurate with this one. I used to wear 34DD or even 36D depending on what the bra places would tell me. I’m actually a 30DDDD or sister size 32DDD. I only shop for bras in UK now because most US places just don’t carry my size. Also, to make your chest look smaller, look for a bra called a minimizer. People are always shocked by my size when I wear a swimsuit because my bra makes them look much smaller. And I get to wear the cute flowy shirts that normally make me look like I’m wearing a sack. Also, the thing i love about wearing my correct size is that it’s actually helped shape them back up. Sports bras just do damage after a while if your not using them just for workout/sports.
Hi, I prepared this last night. I put 1/2 of the recipe in 2 containers. I just enjoyed it for breakfast. Absolutely delicious! The perfect amount of each ingredient. I topped it with strawberry jelly from Costco, used their peanut butter too! Thanks for sharing and can’t wait to try your peanut butter chocolate chip overnight oats!
So glad you loved it!!
Chantelle sports bras. The best and band sizes can be tiny. I’m a 34/36 DDD and my friend is like a 30 DDD we both love them. Chantelle Women’s Sport High Impact Convertible Bra, Grey/Mist, 30D https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00U8QEUXO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_8g.1AbWSRQYBZ
Can you use soy milk in place of almond?
I feel your pain. I’m a 36DDD. Shopping sucks, Vicki s rocks, even though I hate paying 60.00 for a bra, and excercise is a joke. Well said!
Sounds and looks very yummy, I am going to make it now for breakfast tomorrow morning!
Lee, I have a general OO question. What size jars do you make these in? When I make oats, I generally do so in a large bowl, but I’d rather be able to just grab and go in the morning.
Hiyah! To be honest, I make mine in a huge bowl too because I usually double or triple my OO recipes for the entire week. Here’s a single serve jar I love —> http://rstyle.me/n/caxgeeb6pp7
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’ ?
😛 I have gotten a few sports bras from Athleta and I lOVED THEM. Still hoping I wake up one morning and they are gone, though 😀
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
do you add the jelly with the oats before refrigerating?
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!!
No problem at all! Yes, you could make this and store in your fridge for up to 4 or 5 days! The longer the oats soak, the better 🙂
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 🙂
AHHHHHH girl I feel you. Yes most people are always like WHATTTTTT?! Noooooo! It’s because I smash em in with a sports bra.
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!
Oh! Soma is GREAT. I have a strapless that I LOVEEEE.
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!
Ahhhh! That makes me wanna!!
