Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Overnight Oats

These Creamy Overnight Oats Are the PB&J You Eat With a Spoon — With 20 Grams of Protein!

During the sticky hot summer months, when I'm battling the heat with the little AC unit I have in my living room window, cooking anything — even pancakes on the stove — will heat up my entire house. To get the filling flavour of oatmeal without cooking it on the stove, I'm a big fan of overnight oats. While I also love cold refreshing smoothies when temps are high, spooning into and chewing oatmeal just feels heartier and more satisfying. Here's a classic flavour combo coming at you with the twist of added protein.

These creamy peanut-buttery oats are topped with fruit and chopped peanuts and taste so perfect — I just close my eyes and smile, remembering the simple joy of eating a PB&J as a kid. There's added powdered peanut butter for a strong peanut flavour, but if you want a more subtle flavour or you don't have powdered peanut butter, you can swap vanilla protein powder instead.

Fresh or frozen berries taste delicious, but you can also use a sugar-free jam if you want a truer PB&J texture. Raisins would be delicious too! Of course if you're more of a almond butter and jelly person, you can make that swap, too.
