PB&J Overnight Oats

This post is sponsored in conjunction with Back to School Treats Week. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #BacktoSchoolTreats Week recipes. All opinions are mine alone.


Summer is winding down, and we are celebrating with #BacktoSchoolTreats hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures. All week-long 30 bloggers will be sharing 100+ fantastic recipes for both parents and kids, with breakfasts, snacks, desserts, and drinks to get you back in the school routine.

I'm kicking things off with one of my favorite on the go breakfasts or snacks, overnight oats.  I'm not usually one to jump on a food fad, but I fell head over heels for this one.  They are just so simple to put together, easy to customize to accomodate different tastes, and absolutely delicious.


For this version, I wanted to capture the essence of the quintesential school day lunch, the PB&J sandwich.  The basic components are Flahavan's oats, chia seeds, powdered peanut butter, macerated strawberries, and the milk of your choice.


I like to layer my ingredient in the jars so that they look pretty, but you can mix it all together too. I start with the oats, then chia seeds, a layer of strawberry "jelly", more oats, more chia seeds,  powdered peanut butter, and then repeat.  Add 1 cup milk, I like to use unsweetened almond milk.


Pop the lids on, stash them in the fridge overnight.  You can eat them cold, or you can warm them up, totally up to you.  If you can't find the powdered peanut butter you can definitely use the traditional kind, and you can also substitute an "all fruit" variety jelly or jam for the macerated strawberries


Thank you so much to Flahavan's and our other generous sponsors for providing the amazing prize packages. Don't forget to enter the giveaway below!
