Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats are the perfect make-ahead breakfast or snack, perfect for busy families. This version combines old fashioned oatmeal, chia seeds, and milk - with peanut butter and jelly. Top them with granola, sliced bananas, or eat them plain.
If NOT layering, combine the oatmeal, chia seeds, milk, peanut butter, and jelly in a mixing bowl. Stir well, and pour into four 8 oz. jars and attach the lid. Store oats in the refrigerator overnight, or at least two hours.
If Layering, combine the base - oatmeal, chia seeds, and milk, and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to thicken. Take four jars, and pour some of the base into each one, about 1/2 full. Layer an even amount of the peanut butter and jelly on top of the base, and then add the remaining base. (Note: for picture purposes, I added an additional amount of both peanut butter and jelly, for presentation.) Store the jars in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least another hour.
To serve, eat plain as is, or add optional toppings of sliced bananas, other fruit, or granola.
