Ingredients

  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter, plus more for layering
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup chia jam (or store-bought jam)

Instructions

  • Make jam:
    Make a batch of chia jam, if using.
  • Combine ingredients:
    In the meantime, put oats, almond milk, peanut butter, chia seeds, protein powder (is using) and sea salt 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.
  • Let set: Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge for 3-4 hours, or overnight.
  • Serve:
    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 jam as a topping or create layers with it. 
  • Layer: To make the layered version simply place 1/2 Tablespoon of peanut butter in the bottom of a jar. Add 1/4 of the overnight oats on top, then 2 Tablespoons of jam and then cover with another 1/4 of the overnight oats. Use remaining ingredients to make a second layered jar. Drizzle more peanut butter on top, if desired and serve.
  • Store: Overnight oats will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge in a sealed airtight container.

Notes

  • Protein powder: 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.
  • Jam: My homemade chia jam is unsweetened and perfect in this recipe, but if you don't have time to make chia jam you can use store-bought jam.
  • Peanut butter: If you don't have or are allergic to peanut butter, you can use any nut or seed butter instead.
