Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats

You’ll love waking up to these peanut butter and jelly overnight oats with protein-rich peanut flour and chia seed jam. 

I’ve been making and enjoying overnight oats for years but I feel like I’ve never been able to get a good picture of them. I usually mix them in a plastic container in a rush before heading to bed. Nothing against Tupperware but it’s just not that cute.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats -- packed with protein and perfect for Valentine's Day

This week my overnight oats got an upgrade. From Tupperware to Weck jars and they’re (wait for it…) Valentine’s Day themed. I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day. LOVE, hearts, flowers, chocolate, pink… everything about it. It also happens to be my birthday so even when I didn’t have a romantic interest, it’s always been a fun day for me. <3

Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats -- packed with protein and perfect for Valentine's Day

Okay so back to these oats. They’re peanut butter and jelly flavored, delicious and topped with a heart. I used a little peanut flour and Perfect Fit protein powder to amp up the protein and a batch of homemade chia seed jam for a boost of fruity flavor and heart-shaped pop of color.

They’re pretty easy to throw together and would be such a cute breakfast to serve your sweetheart or little ones on Valentine’s Day for breakfast. Because I thought this would be a fun recipe to share with loved ones, the portions are meant to serve two people. 🙂 Enjoy!

You'll love waking up to these peanut butter and jelly overnight oats with protein-rich peanut flour and chia seed jam.
Author:
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 11/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I used Almond Breeze)
  • 4 Tablespoons peanut flour
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Perfect Fit)
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 batch of berry chia jam (I used Trader’s Joe’s Very Cherry Berry Blend instead of frozen strawberries for this batch)
Instructions
  1. Make a batch of berry chia jam following the recipe for my strawberry chia seed jam.
  2. In the meantime, put oats, almond milk, peanut flour, protein powder and cinnamon in a bowl and gently stir them together until the protein powder and flour have dissolved. Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or overnight.
  3. Once the overnight oats have set up (and absorbed most of the almond milk) you’re ready to serve them!
  4. You can simply separate the overnight oats into two containers and use the berry chia jam as a topping. Carefully add it to the top in the shape of a heart if you want to have the heart on top.
  5. Or you can create a layered version. To make the layered version simply place ¼ of the overnight oats in a container, place ¼ of the berry chia jam on top, cover with another ¼ of the overnight oats and top with more berry chia jam (shaped in a heart, if desired). Use remaining oats and chia jam to make a second bowl of layered overnight oats and serve.
Notes
If you don’t want to use protein power, simply add a couple tablespoons of Greek yogurt in place of the protein powder or omit the powder completely.

    Do you have any alternative suggestions for peanut flour? Would coconut flour make it too dry? What about arrowroot powder?

  14. It’s amazing how many simple PBJ ideas are overlooked! great idea!

  20. These is such an amazing idea! I usually make chia seed jam to have with my yoghurt but it would be amazing on oats, and very cute for valentines day:)

  21. This looks so yummy! I usually just put a chunk of peanut butter and jelly on it, but I like the idea that it is overnight pb oats!

  22. Thank you for writing about overnight oats – they are my new favorite thing! I made a batch last night with a drizzle of honey, a dash of cinnamon, a tablespoon of dates and a pinch of coconut. It was delicious. The possibilities are endless and I look forward to trying out different combos!

  23. I don’t have peanut flour, but I do have peanut powder. Do you think this would work in a pinch?
