You’ll love waking up to these peanut butter and jelly overnight oats! Protein-rich peanut butter and chia seed jam are swirled in with the creamy oats for a delicious and healthy breakfast.
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 storage container in a rush before heading to bed. Nothing against my typical glass storage containers, but they’re just not super cute.
This week my overnight oats got an upgrade. From glass storage containers 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
Okay so back to these overnight oats. They’re peanut butter and jelly flavored and so delicious. I used a little peanut butter and plant-based protein powder to amp up the protein and a batch of homemade chia seed jam for a boost of fruity flavor and a 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!

In the meantime, put oats, almond milk, peanut butter, protein powder and cinnamon in a bowl and gently stir them together until the protein powder has dissolved. It’s okay if the peanut butter is a little clumpy. Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours, or overnight.
Once the overnight oats have set up (and absorbed most of the almond milk) you’re ready to serve them!
You can simply separate the overnight oats into two containers and use the berry chia jam as a topping or create layers with it. To make the layered version simply place 1/4 of the overnight oats in a container, place 1/4 of the berry chia jam on top, cover with another 1/4 of the overnight oats and top with more berry chia jam. Use remaining oats and chia jam to make a second bowl of layered overnight oats and serve. Drizzle more peanut butter on top, if desired.
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.
