Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats


I posted this recipe on my facebook page so people could share the recipe easily but I need to blog it! These oats taste like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a mason jar. Kids will love it, it's great for breakfast before and it's something you can make the night before (the beauty of overnight oats). These oats are packed with fiber, healthy fat and fruit sweetener.

I'm currently home in PA on vacation and visiting my family; it's been a relaxing and productive time but I don't eat as healthy as I do when I'm home and settled into my normal routine. I tend not to eat as many greens as I should but I always have oats around. One morning for breakfast I whipped these up and I just had to share with you. These oats are sweet so adjust the jelly amount as you see fit. Use only fruit jelly with little to no added sugar. You can also make my jelly here and here.  

PB&J Oats Recipe:
1/2 cup of rolled oats
2 tbsp of natural peanut butter
1 tbsp of all fruit jelly
3/4 cup of non dairy milk

Combine the milk, oats and peanut butter in a mason jar or bowl and mix well. Add the jelly to the top of the oats, put the lid on the jar and refrigerate. Go to sleep eager to wake up and eat this the next day for breakfast. Or eat for dessert. This is seriously the bomb dish.

I'm finishing this post now that I'm back in the city and eager to get some new recipes going in the kitchen...can't wait to share with you! XOXO

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
