Somehow, until now, I had never made overnight oats. I have read about them on blogs for years but never actually made my own until now. I have always been intrigued by the idea but never made them because I prefer my oats hot.
I have a hard time admitting this but I finally am getting sick of my beloved oatmeal for breakfast. After eating it everyday that I work for breakfast for years, I need a break. Oatmeal is so healthy and delicious though so I am not cutting out oats for breakfast completely but just switching up how I make them.
These peanut butter and jelly overnight oats are delicious, taste like a PB and J and are good for you. They have protein powder for a boost of protein and to help keep you full. The chia seeds are high in fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids. The strawberries are rich in vitamin C!

For this recipe, I used Purely Inspired Organic Protein 100% plant-based nutritional shake which worked well in this recipe to give a boost of protein and nutrients. What I like is that this protein is not too sweet and it does not take over a recipe. The protein mix is dairy, gluten and soy free. Flavors include French vanilla and decadent chocolate. Each serving has 20 grams of protein, 7 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar and is 130 calories. It contains an organic fruit and veggie blend with spinach, broccoli, flax and blueberry. It contains a blend of proteins including organic pea protein and organic brown rice protein.
