What are the best oats to use?
Old fashioned rolled oats are best to use in this PBJ overnight oats recipe. They get nice and soft but still hold their texture.
You can use quick oats in a pinch, but their texture can be quite soggy. Steel cut oats are best avoided as they remain quite tough even after soaking.
Can you use plant based milks?
Yes! You can use any milk you like for these oats. Almond, oat, soy and coconut will all work well in this recipe.
I like to use 2% dairy, but you can use whole milk (3.5%) for an even creamier texture.
How long do they last?
Overnight oats will keep well in the fridge for up to 5 days. Make up a batch on Sunday night and then enjoy them for quick breakfasts throughout the week.
The longer you leave them, the creamier and softer the oats will get.
- You can mix the oats, chia seeds and milk separately, allow to sit for 5 minutes and then pour the mixture over the peanut butter and preserves. I do it all in a single container for ease and fewer dishes.
- The recipe below is for one jar, you can easily half the recipe, share it or enjoy half the next day as it’s pretty filling!
These PBJ overnight oats are such a delicious way to start your mornings. I love that you have a yummy breakfast in the fridge waiting for you!
