Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal

    Peanut butter and jelly oatmeal

    Inspired by the PB&Js that your mom used to make when you were a kid, this recipe will surely bring back some good memories. This comforting peanut butter and jelly oatmeal is a great way to start your morning.

    This oatmeal recipe is extra creamy, sweet, delicious, and—the best part—it can be done in just 5 minutes. How amazing is that?

    If you are a mom yourself and can’t get your kids to have oatmeal for breakfast, this recipe might change that.

    You can even prepare this recipe the night before, store it in the fridge, and eat it as overnight oatmeal the next day, or reheat it in the microwave and enjoy it warm. If necessary, add some more milk and add any toppings that you want.

    What You Need to Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal

    You won’t need any complex ingredients for this recipe—only rolled oats, banana, peanut butter, jelly, and your preferred milk (or water).

    Any type of jelly works in this recipe, including store-bought. I am using a sugar-free, homemade raspberry and chia jelly. I’ve shared the ingredients for my jelly here, and instructions to make it are below.

    On the side, prepare the jelly. Pour some raspberries in a small pan and let it cook for 5 minutes. Once the raspberries are nice and soft, mash it with a fork.

    Let it cool down just a little bit, and add the chia seeds. Reserve. (If you already have your jelly, just skip this step.)

    Preparing jelly in a bowl

    To assemble, start by pouring the oatmeal into a bowl, then add the raspberry jelly and, if you want, some more peanut butter.

    Sprinkle some shredded coconut and add some more fresh raspberries on top. Enjoy!

    Is peanut butter and jelly oatmeal healthy?

    The oatmeal itself is high in vitamins and minerals and healthy carbs. Adding peanut butter is a great way to pack the meal with a good source of protein and healthy fats.

    If you don’t want to add any sugar to it, you just need to make sure that you use a sugar-free jelly (or the one that I have suggested in the recipe).
