I’m incredibly late to the overnight oats par-tay. Like, I just discovered them last Fall, you guys. I didn’t always get the appeal – I’ve always been a rolled oats kind of girl, but I’m supremely lazy when it’s time for breakfast. I need an easy, but good for you meal I can grab and go. Egg muffins are always good, but I get bored of those, sometimes.
I was legit scrolling through Instagram under the breakfast hashtag, and saw several overnight oats snaps, and I knew it was time to try them! I love how easy, and filling they are, and require very little effort. I need easy in the morning, people…
My latest obsession? Peanut Butter & Jelly Overnight Oats – the peanut butter, with the combo of oats makes this breakfast extremely filling. I will sometimes mix my peanut butter with melted coconut oil, for extra healthy fats, and a teaspoon of chia seeds. Sometimes I’ll add in honey for natural sweetness. I just like that there are a ton of ways to make these overnight oats, and I think it will take a while for me to get bored.
I love making homemade jams (as you know), but I’m not really making a batch ahead of time just for one breakfast. So I was on the hunt for a more real jam, or fruit spread for my latest oats obsession. And then I snagged a jar of Welch’s Chia Concord Grape Fruit Spread at Publix. Loaded with more than 700 chia seeds in each serving, without any artificial sugars, I knew this was spread I could get behind – also available in strawberry, I’m totally buying that flavor next.
To make overnight oats, any liquid will do! I generally use almond milk, but honestly even water will work. You can layer your oats, or mix it all in at once. I like to layer em’, let them cook overnight (read: expand), mix it all together, and eat straight from the jar. Jason on the other hand, likes to dump his into a bowl. Whatever floats your boat, kids.
I love that this breakfast only requires four ingredients: rolled oats, natural peanut butter, almond milk, and Welch’s Chia Concord Grape Fruit Spread. No need to add extra chia seeds, or honey since this fruit spread has a natural sweetness with all those chia seeds. #holla
