Overnight oats are one of my favorite go-to breakfasts. They take seconds to whip up, are filling, and healthy (vegan and gluten-free)!

Better yet, the base is created using pantry staples and the toppings are up to you!

In this recipe, we’re taking the traditional route by making a PB and J flavor. Salty peanut butter combined with sweet berries is truly a match made in Heaven.

HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY COMPOTE

Strawberry compote sounds so fancy, but it’s actually super simple to make.

  1. Add strawberries (fresh or frozen) in a saucepan with agave and water over high heat
  2. After about 10 minutes, the strawberries get mushy. Keep breaking them up with a spoon until the desired consistency is reached!

Note: If you use frozen strawberries, no need to thaw before this process!

HOW TO MAKE OVERNIGHT OATS:

I know the word “overnight” is in the title, but it really can be made 30 minutes prior to eating!

  1. Add oats, chia seeds, and almond milk to a container with a lid and give it a good shake.
  2. Place in the fridge to set.
  3. When ready to eat, top with strawberry compote and peanut butter

Tip: The consistency will be thick when ready to eat. If you prefer your overnight oats to be thinner, simply add a splash more of milk!

OVERNIGHT OATS + MEAL PREP

Peanut butter and jelly overnight oats is a meal preppers dream!

  • Make the strawberry compote and store it in a separate container
  • Pre-measure out oats and chia seeds in containers (I prefer Mason Jars)
  • The night before, add milk to one of the jars and shake well. Add a spoonful of the compote and peanut butter and pop it in the fridge
  • Grab and go in the am!

Tips:

You can make all the overnight oats for the week with the almond milk and leave them in the fridge. I prefer to do one at a time. With the oats and chia seeds measured out, it’s so easy to just add milk and pop it in the fridge the night before!
