Foodie Friday ~ PB&J Overnight Oats

I am not a huge fan of oatmeal in the summer. My love for oatmeal seems to be weather dependent. If it is fall or winter I am all about the oatmeal. It’s warm. It’s inviting. It’s hearty and comforting. Yet in the spring and summer all of the properties I love about oatmeal just don’t seem to fit with the season.

Enter in the overnight oats fad.

When I first stumbled upon this trend awhile back, my primary thought was ‘oh gee yet another food that we are trying to make look artsy by throwing it in a mason jar.’ Serious who has time to make their food look that pretty and layered on a regular basis. It’s a lie I tell you!

Nevertheless, I discovered the prep method itself is pretty darn tasty. It turns a cold weather dish into a refreshing yogurty oatmeal parfait that is perfect for the warmer weather. I have declared it the iced coffee of the oatmeal world.

Now combine the concept of overnight oatmeal with the iconic-ness of the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, toss in a little protein powder, perhaps a sprinkling of chia seeds and voila, you have a power packed breakfast.

Your welcome my friends.


Ingredients: 1 Cup rolled oats 1 Cup vanilla almond milk 1 Tbsp. chia seeds 2 Tbsp. vanilla protein powder 2 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter 2 Tbsp. all natural strawberry preserves 4 large strawberries diced

Directions: For the Peanut Butter Oats Mix all ingredients together and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight. For the Jelly Layer First, dice up 2 large strawberries. Then, mix about 2 tablespoons of jelly with the strawberries. Lay in with oats.
