Even though you’re longing for it, you couldn’t possibly bring a peanut butter and jelly to work! What would Karen in accounting say? All that sugar! All those refined carbs! All that excess fat! You’re an adult and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are for kids. Well, they were, until now!

I present to you: Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats. It’s your favorite childhood sandwich all grown up. These jars of nostalgic goodness are packed with protein, fiber, and even a vegetable. So take that, Karen.

To top if all off, this recipe is also as simple as slapping together a sandwich before school. Just stir together some oats and a few mix ins, let it sit for a few hours, and top it with peanut butter and jam or jelly. If you want to lower the sugar content even more and add some extra nutrients to your overnight oats, try making a batch of Strawberry Chia Seed Jam.


Make a few servings on Sunday and enjoy them throughout the week. You’ll be the envy of the lunch room.
