PB&J Overnight Oats: The Perfect Sleep-In Breakfast

Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oatmeal

As I mentioned in my Lifehacks for Procrastinators post, I am a big fan of a breakfast that lets me sleep in as long as possible (my standby is a bowl of boiled eggs in the fridge). So imagine my delight when Pinterest introduced me to the world of overnight oats.

After playing around with a few recipes, I came up with this little on-the-go gem to fortify me on mornings when I’m pressed for time.

This recipe fills one large or two small mason jars.

It’s protein-packed peanut butter and jelly, with a twist!

1/2 cup oats (not quick-cooking)

1/2 cup greek yogurt

1/2 cup frozen fruit

1/4 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup milk (or water)

1 scoop vega choc-a-lot protein smoothie

1 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)

1 Tbsp ground flaxseed

1 tsp vanilla

1 pinch cinnamon (to taste)

Combine oats, cinnamon, vanilla, coconut oil, protein powder and flax. Mix in additional ingredients and layer with frozen fruit into a mason jar or other portable container. Leave the jar in the fridge overnight and your oats will be ready to eat in the morning!

What’s your favourite on-the-go breakfast?

    My favourite also came from Pinterest. It’s a PBGS&B wrap. That’s a mouthful but its so delicious. I don’t eat a ton of fruit so this sneaks some in. It’s a wrap with peanut butter, granola, strawberry and banana and I make it the night before – I’m also about the sleep!

    My go-to lately has been egg muffins! I make a batch on sunday to last the week, then just heat up 2 each morning. Eggs, smoked turkey, peppers and spinach this week!
