PB&J Overnight Oats

PB&J Overnight OatsMy favorite kind of breakfast is one that is ready for me when I wake up in the morning. I’m usually hungry the second I open my eyes, so having overnight oats waiting for me in the fridge just makes my morning so much better.

PB&J Overnight OatsOvernight oats always seem to keep me full for hours, and you can get so creative with the flavors and toppings that I never seem to get tired of them. I have done everything from mocha coconut, banana bread, mixed berry, chocolate banana, and tons more. I usually just top them with whatever I have in the fridge. Lots of fruit, nuts and superfoods.

PB&J Overnight OatsToday’s version is a classic PB&J, you can never go wrong with that one. I made the easiest blueberry chia jam that only requires 3 ingredients, and then plopped that right on top of the peanut butter oats. SUH GOOD.

PB&J Overnight OatsIt has been entirely too hot for a bunch of warm foods lately, so I have practically been living on overnight oats, smoothies and salads. I’m not mad about it. This breakfast is cold, creamy, healthy and so satisfying. Give it a try and let me know how you like it by tagging me on Instagram and using the hashtag #thewheatlesskitchen!


PB&J Overnight Oats

Yield: Serves 1


  • 1/3 cup GF whole oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Blueberry Chia Jam
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 tsp stevia powder
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2-3 tbsp water


  1. Make the jam ahead of time by combining the berries, stevia and water in a small saucepan. Let it cook over medium heat until the berries break up and release their juices, this will take about 10-15 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to gently mash the berries to your desired consistency.
  2. Add the chia seeds and remove from the heat. Stir until evenly combined and let it sit for a 15 minutes to thicken. Spoon the jam into a jar and store in the fridge.
  3. To make the overnight oats, combine the oats, chia seeds, peanut butter, vanilla and milk in a jar that has a tight fitting lid. Close the lid and shake vigorously until all ingredients are combined. Place the jar in the fridge and let it sit overnight.
  4. When you are ready for breakfast in the morning, the oats will be thick and ready to eat. Just top with desired amount of blueberry jam and a spoonful of peanut butter.
