PB&J Overnight Oats
PB&J Overnight Oats
PB&J Overnight Oats is an easy, healthy and clean recipe, that’s just in time for those of you that are preparing your kids for this back to school season. It’s that time of year again! I went grocery shopping the night before most of the major schools in my area start classes, and bread was totally sold out! This made me think of all those lunches that are packing the classic PB&J sandwich. The PB&J overnight oats recipe reminded me that PB&J doesn’t have to be only enjoyed on a sandwich or even only at lunch. You can enjoy PB&J for breakfast as overnight oats and it’s deliciously easy!

PB&J Overnight Oats Recipe
- 1/2 cup of powdered peanut butter (2 Tbsp per serving)
- 2 Tbsp creamy unsweetened peanut butter (1/2 Tbsp per serving)
- 2 cups old-fashioned overnight oats (1/2 cup per serving)
- 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (1/2 cup per serving)
- 1 1/3 cups of sliced strawberries (1/3 cup per serving)
- 4 packets of stevia (1 packet per serving)
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon (1/8 tsp per serving)
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract (1/8 tsp per serving)
- dash of salt for each serving
- In each of your 4 sealable to-go bowls (I like the snapware containers), combine 2 Tbsp of powdered peanut butter, and 2 Tbsp of warm water. Mix the powdered peanut butter and warm water until smooth and uniform in each bowl.
- Add a single serving of the other ingredients to each bowl, and mix well.
- Cover each to-go bowl and refridgerate overnight (at least 6 hours).
In the morning before you head out the door, just grab a PB&J bowl and a spoon and enjoy!
I found this recipe in Lisa Lillien’s “Clean and Hungry” cookbook (life saver for quick, clean and healthy meals). The recipe serves 4 and each serving contains 293 calories, 10.5g of total fat, 1g of saturated fat, 291 mg of sodium, 38.5g of carbs, 8.5g of fiber, 5g of sugars, and 14g of protein.
Lisa Lillien is the first person to introduce me to powdered peanut butter, and it’s amazing! 2 Tbsp of powdered peanut butter has about 50 calories and 2g of fat, where 2 Tbsp of regular peanut butter has 200 calories and 16g of fat. Big difference!
Below is a chart of price comparison grocery stores. When reviewing this chart, keep in mind that the prices may have changed slightly from when I visited these stores. Please take into consideration when reviewing this chart that Whole Foods only offers organic options, and also offers coupons and cash back programs to its Amazon Prime members. The Target prices do not include the 5% red debit card discount, cartwheel offers (since these change weekly), or the $0.05 off per bag for any bags used from home. Also be sure to check Publix’s current bogo list. If you really desire convenience both Publix and Target offer delivery, and Target also offers buy online/store pick up too. This is a great option if you are trying to stay on a budget, because it prevents impulse purchases that can often happen from going into the store. FYI, when I created this blog the Jiffy brand powdered peanut butter was marked down and had a 5% off cartwheel offer at Target!
I hope the back to school season has started off smoothly for all of you. What are some of your favorite lunches to pack, or what are some favorite lunches you had when you were in school? I’d love to hear back from you, don’t be a stranger!
