Say hello to your new favorite breakfast: PB&J Overnight Oats! You can bring your overnight oats game to the next level by adding homemade strawberry jam and delicious peanut butter sauce.
I haven’t posted any new breakfast recipes in months, and there’s a simple reason for that: I have been eating overnight oats every single day!
Remember when I said I wanted to make a healthy habit by eating more oats for breakfast? That worked surprisingly well!
I just LOVE waking up in the morning and knowing that a delicious bowl of overnight oats is waiting for me in the fridge.
Usually, I just make simple overnight oats (oats + plant milk) and then top it in the morning with tahin and maple syrup. But lately, I’ve been in the mood to mix it up more. That’s when I tried these PB&J Overnight Oats and I am obsessed!
It’s easy to step up your overnight oats game by adding homemade Strawberry Chia Jam and a delicious peanut butter sauce. You can prepare the overnight oats base and make the toppings fresh in the morning if you like warm strawberry chia jam or just place the whole PB&J overnight oats in the fridge.
How to make PB&J Overnight Oats
You will need:
- rolled oats (if you can get fine rolled oats use them! I love them the most!)
- plant-based milk (I am usually using oat milk but any plant-based milk is fine!)
- for the strawberry jam: frozen strawberries, maple syrup, chia seeds
- for the peanut butter sauce: peanut butter, salt, maple syrup, water
