it’s peanut butter jelly time!! c’mom people, you know you want to sing it out with me. i’ve been on this overnight oats obsession again for a few weeks now. i say “again” because i used to make them *all* the time senior year of college. but i got sooo bored of them, that i gave them up for quite some time. (almost two years, i think!) i guess people are right when they say that “too much of something is never a good thing”. but then again, i’m back on the bandwagon – so who really cares.
i’ve been experimenting with a few recipes over the past weeks and came up with one that i think is a true winner. it’s peanut butter and jelly – what could go wrong? there’s a trick going around the internet about using an empty peanut butter jar as a container for your overnight oats. it’s sort of a way to get the last bit of pb out and avoid wasting food. so if we can do that with a pb jar, why not apply the same trick to a jelly jar?
this recipe doesn’t require any legit measuring methods – which makes it a complete one-dish, no-cleanup, no-dishes, whatever recipe. follow the steps on the images for the full recipe.
- old fashioned rolled oats (i would avoid using quick oats on any overnight oats recipe)
- peanut butter
- chia seeds
- empty jar of strawberry jelly
note: it’s super sweet at first, specially if you used an over-ripped banana – but you start to really love it after the second bite.
