Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats

The all-time best lunch sandwich in perfect overnight oats form!  You’ll love my Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats

Hello! Hello!

My parents made a deal with me in high school.  They gave me an allowance each week, which included my lunch money.  The rules were I could spend the extra money on my lunch at school or make my own at home and keep the money.  I guess they were trying to teach me not to eat out too much or to save?  I’m still not sure…

It’s no big surprise that my high school self (who loved to SHOP even more than I do now) made my lunch every day and pocketed that money for bigger and brighter things, like all the clothes from the movie Clueless. <— totally dated myself, yikes! 

My specialty– a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich.  I probably ate one everyday for almost four years and never got sick of them.  I still love Peanut Butter and Jelly, although I try to health-ify it these days with better whole grain bread, natural peanut butter and just fruit jelly choices.  It’s such a classic combination.

So I had an idea!  Taking my beloved Peanut Butter and Jelly and turning it into overnight oats.

Enter my Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats.

I am beyond thrilled with the way it turned out.  I used powered peanut butter in the overnight oats to keep the calorie count down and not overwhelm the oat flavor.  I layered it with fresh strawberries and quality strawberry jelly made out of just fruit.

My Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats is crowned with a lattice of real melted peanut butter and an additional dollop of jelly.  I love the combination of powdered peanut butter and real peanut butter.

I even added a super food punch with some chia seeds in the mix.

This is truly a grown up version of my high school favorite.

So next time you have a peanut butter and jelly think of me AND this fabulous Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats recipe.

    I made overnight oats a few weeks ago and it definitely did NOT look or taste as good as this looks! I need to try this recipe!

    I have actually never made overnight oats! But I am pretty sure that is about to change!
    PB&J is never a bad combo 🙂 And in oats! Delish!

    Oooh this looks so good. And easy! This would probably be a great post-run snack.

    I have never done the oats in the fridge like this. I love oatmeal but not sure I would like the consistency. This sounds really good though so you may have me sold on trying it!

      They are good! A little chewy actually. Worth trying! I actually like to pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds to make them more room temperature. Good stuff.

    Gosh, you aren’t kidding. PB&J is such a classic that it hardly needs any altering!!

    Love PB&J! I actually never knew powdered peanut butter existed. I’ll definitely be making this. Thanks for the recipe!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 8:46 am - Reply

      Oh yes! It’s is such a good option for mixing into things like this! Fewer calories and still has the taste.

    I used to eat oatmeal all the time for breakfast. I like the idea of putting a peanut butter and jelly spin on it.

      Yay! So glad you like it. Hope you get a chance to try it— budget friendly too!

  20. Do you think you could eat this warmed up? I am not such a fan of the cold oats. Otherwise yum!

      Yes! I actually warm it up a little in the morning sometimes and then add the toppings 🙂

    What a great idea from your parents! I tended to pack my lunch so much during high school, regardless. I Just never had a desire to eat all the greasy food- but I did sometimes! we did have a really nice salad bar, so that was a nice option. I don’t like peanut butter (I know!) but these oats make me want them regardless, haha!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 8:41 am - Reply

      Yeah– the food was kind of yucky. I think the only option I deamed acceptable was a slice of Papa Johns. They actually had a pizza booth like that. Can’t imagine that would go over in school these days 🙂

    Looks so yummy! You know what I am thinking….breakfast for ? It is frightening that I can go through 1# of PB2 in no time. I keep it in my desk at work.

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2016 at 8:40 am - Reply

      It’s like your the PB2 monster 🙂 It’s so good in oatmeal!

    PB&J was always a favorite of mine! Love this!

    Alex is a PB and J monster. I won’t even make his PB and J’s (if he were to ask me to) because there is just no way I would ever get the ratio correct!

    Oh, I just want to dip my spoon in to that peanut butter at the top. This is definitely my kind of breakfast!
