Ahh the good ol’ peanut butter and jelly days. I love PB&Js because they remind me of grade school field trips, picnics with friends, and camping with my family. This Peanut Butter and Berry Jam Overnight Oats recipe is a play off of the classic PB&J, but instead of using a store-bought spread (typically packed with added sugars), the “J” is a delicious jam containing all natural fruit sugars. The chia seeds give the jam its gel-like consistency, while also providing the added bonus of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and key nutrients like calcium and phosphorus.
Feel free to mix up the recipe by adding different fruits, using another kind of nut butter, or drizzling some honey on top if you need a little extra sweetness. The great part about this recipe is you can prepare it the night before so you don’t even have to think about breakfast in the morning! You could even prepare it to eat later on in the day to replace your usual PB&J sandwich. This PB and Jam Overnight Oatmeal is sure to become your “JAM” for delicious nutritious, on-the-go recipes!
Peanut Butter and Berry Jam Overnight Oats
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 cup milk of your choice (almond milk, skim milk, soy milk, etc)
- 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt

- To make the peanut butter oats, combine oats, peanut butter, milk, and yogurt in a small container. Store in fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
- To make the berry jam, add berries and 1 tablespoon of water to a small saucepan and set to medium heat. Allow berries to simmer until soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chia seeds. Add berry jam into a small container and store in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
