peanut butter and jelly are the best of friends and they've invited overnight oats to the party
Peanut butter is such a versatile ingredient.
From breakfast to dessert to savory dishes, peanut butter works well in so many recipes. We especially like homemade peanut butter in my house, much better than storebought. I make it fresh every week simply by tossing a bunch of peanuts into my Ninja blender.
I've made use of peanut butter for savory dishes in the form of a peanut sauce for a gourmet-style Thai-inspired Chicken Pizza and in a savory and spicy African-inspired peanut soup.
I've also used peanut butter in so many desserts like my moist one bowl Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar.

But peanut butter and jelly go together, they just do. And in this recipe for peanut butter and jelly overnight oats, I use my own homemade blueberry chia jelly - it's my fave.
Storebought works great and you can switch up the jam or jelly to your preference. I think a strawberry version of these peanut butter and jelly overnight oats would be fantastic with fresh strawberries piled on top.
Ingredients for this recipe
- Old fashioned rolled oats, plus large flake oats. I like adding some of the large flake oats because it leaves some texture to the oats, so I use a bit of both.
- I use homemade peanut butter and homemade chia jam but you definitely don't have to. Storebought versions work just as well.
- Almond milk - I always use unsweetened almond milk. You can use cashew or oat milk if you like.
- Greek yogurt - I like a high protein, plain Greek yogurt, especially in my overnight oats recipes.
- Sweetener - I use brown sugar for this recipe because it goes well with peanut butter. You could use maple syrup if you prefer. You may need less sweetener if your peanut butter already contains sugar.
- Chia seeds up the protein in this peanut butter overnight oats recipe. Chia seeds also contain fiber, calcium, and healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
- Jam or Jelly. Choose your fruit and use either homemade or storebought jam or jelly.
- Use all old fashioned oats if you don't want as much chewy texture.
- You can use whatever peanut butter you like, or even try almond butter or cashew butter.
- Use whatever jam you think tastes good with peanut butter. Or just go for fresh or frozen fruit instead of jam.
- To make these peanut butter and jelly overnight oats vegan, swap the Greek yogurt out for coconut yogurt or soy yogurt.
- To make this overnight oats recipe gluten free, use certified gluten free oats.
EXPERT TIP: Use half old-fashioned rolled oats and half large flake oats for an overnight oat recipe that's creamy but also has some texture to it.

How to make peanut butter overnight oats
Check below for a video tutorial for this recipe.
Making overnight oats is as easy as mixing everything together and refrigerating it. I like to mix the liquids together first to make sure they all combine equally.
So for these peanut butter and jelly overnight oats, I mix together the yogurt, almond milk, peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. I use a whisk because I think it incorporates the peanut butter and yogurt a little more smoothly.
Next I add the oats, the chia seeds and a pinch of salt. Mix together. Add a lid to the container, or plastic wrap and put the container in the fridge to sit for about 4 hours or overnight.
The next day I portion it out as we eat it. You can put it in cute jars so they're ready to grab and go. You can put them in 4 jars when you make them also, just be careful to divide the ingredients equally. Then refrigerate the jars until needed, or for at least 4 hours.
Overnight oats can be warmed up in a microwave before eating. Garnish as preferred.
