WHAT ARE OVERNIGHT OATS?
Overnight oats are (usually) rolled oats soaked in liquid in the fridge overnight and don’t require any cooking. It’s a simple grab-and-go breakfast or snack, perfect for meal prep, that is eaten straight from the refrigerator.
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE PB AND J OVERNIGHT OATS
You need the following ingredients to make these Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats (the exact measurements are in the recipe card below):
- Rolled oats – also known as rolled oats. They are the best for overnight oats. Quick oats absorb more liquid and turn out soggy. For a gluten-free version, use certificate gluten-free oats.
- Chia seeds – absorb the liquid and thickens the overnight oats. They make the oats more filling, plus they are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.
- Vegan yogurt – Makes the oats super creamy. I like to use coconut yogurt but use any plant-based yogurt of your choice.
- Natural peanut butter – adds creaminess and perfect taste to the oats. You can substitute for tahini or any nut butter, such as almond, cashew, or pecan butter.
- Maple syrup – adds the perfect amount of sweetness. You can also use agave syrup or stevia instead.
- Unsweetened almond milk – You can use any plant-based milk, such as oat, soy, or cashew milk.
- Strawberry jam – I like to use unsweetened strawberry jam, but feel free to use any type of jam, such as raspberry, apricot, cherry, or blackberry.
Equipment you need:
- Two jars or glasses

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
CAN I USE QUICK OATS INSTEAD OF ROLLED OATS FOR OVERNIGHT OATS?
