The best for prep.

Just because we’re working from home these days doesn’t mean the days aren’t busy. I cook all day, every day and still like to have an easy grab-n-go meal in the fridge. When you’re hungry, you need something at your finger tips. No one wants a HANGRY honey lurking through the house. These PB&J Overnight Oats ensure a good, and flavorful, ready-made option.

With simple ingredients and one large bowl, this recipe comes together with a few whisks and a chill in the fridge. I find it easiest to chill in a large bowl. Once the oats are set, move them to the mason jars and prepare your servings. This gives the oats a chance to soak up all the liquid and become a more consistent texture before breaking up the batch.

The step by step.

It couldn’t be any easier of a recipe with only a few simple steps. You’ll start by whisking all the ingredients together in a large bowl, cover and rest in the fridge for at least 4 hours to set. The passive time in the fridge allows the oats to soak up the liquid, leaving you a thick cold porridge-like consistency.

Make it fancy by “painting” the insides of the jars with the jam and peanut butter or simply layer it like a truffle. The “painting” ensures you get the combination of flavors with every bite.

This recipe looks bomb! Thanks for sharing!

Can’t wait to try this! One question – do you mean coconut milk from a can (the very fatty stuff) or Silk/Almond Breeze-type coconut milk?

sammymoniz February 5, 2021 - 7:59 am

I used canned coconut but you could use any milk you prefer!

Made this last night and had it this morning. This is soooo good. Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow. Will be making again in a few days this time strawberry jam and peanut butter. Great recipe Sammy!

YESSSS! way to go Paul!

Patti February 5, 2021 - 10:12 am

What size mason jars work well with this recipe?

sammymoniz February 5, 2021 - 3:56 pm

We have 16oz jars in our cabinet.

SSaks February 19, 2021 - 7:49 pm

My family is obsessed with this! The canned coconut milk makes it delectable! Love the mouthfeel!

sammymoniz February 19, 2021 - 11:44 pm

It’s all about the textures here!

Janderreck Manalo February 20, 2021 - 9:08 pm

Can I add protein powders on this one? Thanks

sammymoniz February 20, 2021 - 9:48 pm

I have not tested it with protein powder so I cannot say for sure. If you give this a try, just know you are adding more dry ingredients to the recipe and I would suggest adding more wet ingredients as well to keep the balance.

What would you recommend as a dairy free swap for the Greek yogurt? These look
Really good but I have a crazy dairy allergy

sammymoniz February 20, 2021 - 9:42 pm

There are some great dairy-free yogurts on the market that would work great in this!

Kylie Coker April 14, 2021 - 1:00 pm

I really like the Silk brand yogurts to swap for Greek yogurt- they have a similar “tang” but are a *little* less thick than Greek. I also avoid dairy like the plague ?

Kelsi February 21, 2021 - 4:38 pm

Can you prep individual mason jars first, instead of leaving the mixture in a bowl overnight? I’m not sure if spreading the pb&j inside the jars overnight would make a difference?

sammymoniz February 21, 2021 - 6:25 pm

Kelsi, you sure can! I like to do it this way to ensure the wet:dry ingredient ratios do not get out of wack before they’ve had time to set. I have rationed the mixture before the oats have a chance to set and ended up with some jars too soggy while others were more dense and dry. I prefer to set the oats in one bowl and then ration for this reason but you do what’s best for your meal-prep and fridge space! -Sammy

with the perfect subject. Thanks for a great valuable project. Great work! Keep up the ultra do the webjob!

Andy, I do not yet provide that information. You may copy and paste the link into MyFitnessPal if you track for easy calculating.

Molly B March 26, 2021 - 11:21 am

Tried these last night! I goofed and put all of the pb&j in the original mix so I added a few more oats to balance the wet. They still taste amazing!! Can’t wait to take them to work!
