(Updated 12/22/23)

Calling all PB and jelly lovers! Dive into this easy recipe tutorial for healthy peanut butter and jelly overnight oats with rolled oats and Greek yoghurt. You'll need just 7 simple ingredients and 5 minutes to prep this delicious, nutritious twist on the classic peanut butter and jam sandwich.

When you’re after quick wholesome ideas for breakfast, look no further than overnight oats. With preparation done the night before, it’s sitting ready for spoon-to-mouth action come the morning.

With endless flavour options for overnight oats, this peanut butter and jelly-inspired take pays homage to the classic peanut butter and jam sandwich. Infused with mashed berries and a dollop of peanut butter, it’s nostalgic as🤙. It’s a firm favourite over here (alongside the dessert-like pumpkin pie overnight rolled oats).

Best yet, a serving packs an almighty nutritional punch. Featuring the powerhouse trio of gut-loving fibre, heart-healthy fats, and protein, the combination of nutrients in these overnight oats with Greek yoghurt will help keep you fuelled and satisfied until your next meal.

What are overnight oats? Let’s start with a weird note – if porridge got together with bircher muesli, think of overnight oats as their genetically viable offspring. While they share ingredients with traditional cooked porridge, overnight oats are made by soaking raw oats in milk for a few hours to overnight, similar to bircher muesli. This process initiates the breakdown of complex carbohydrates, softening into a thick, porridge-like, consistency – which is then eaten chilled.

Gather Ingredients

  • Rolled oats. The best oat base for overnight oats. Unlike instant or steel-cut oats, they soak up liquid and yoghurt leaving a gloriously creamy (but not mushy) texture.
  • Strawberries. Fresh or frozen. We’ll whip this into a speedy homemade berry purée to mix into the oats.
  • Peanut butter. Smooth or crunchy is AOK here. If you’re not a fan of, or can’t eat, peanuts, sub in another nut butter e.g. almond or cashew.
  • Milk of choice. Use your favourite non-dairy or dairy – whatever is on hand.
  • Greek yoghurt. Opt for a plain unsweetened yoghurt. A vanilla or strawberry flavoured yoghurt could work too – as these are often sweetened with sugar, you won’t need to add extra sweetener.
  • Maple syrup. A touch to sweeten.
  • Salt. A pinch to balance the flavours.

Oats are packed with beta-glucan, a type of soluble dietary fibre that partially dissolves in water to form a thick, gel-like solution in the gut. It can help reduce LDL and total cholesterol levels (1) and increase feelings of fullness (2)!

Meal prep multiple serves and enjoy as speedy breakfasts across the week! They’ll keep well for 3-4 days.

Serving Suggestions

Overnight oats travel well and are an ideal brekkie to directly prep in a screw-top jar or container to take on-the-go to work university or school. Otherwise, simply prep in a serving bowl, cover then enjoy direct from in the AM!

Enjoy as is, or garnish with fresh berries and a swirl of extra nut butter.

PB & Jelly Overnight Rolled Oats with Greek Yoghurt

Prep Time: 10 minutes


  • ¾ cup or 80g fresh strawberry halves
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • cup plain Greek yoghurt
  • cup milk (your pick e.g. oat, almond, dairy) + a splash more to loosen, if needed
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • A pinch of salt


  • Add ½ cup of the strawberry halves to a microwavable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, twice – give it a mix in between. Alternatively, you could heat gently over the stove. Remove and mash with a fork until a puree. Note: if using frozen strawberry halves you may need to heat for a bit longer!
  • Add to a jar or container the mashed strawberries, oats, yoghurt, milk, peanut butter, maple syrup and salt. Mix well.
  • Finely slice the remaining strawberries. Either mix into the overnight oats or place on top to garnish.
  • Cover and place in the fridge overnight to thicken up and let the flavours infuse.
  • Mix well in the morning. If it's too stiff you can add a splash of milk to loosen. Enjoy!

    These were a delicious highlight to my summer. Strawberry PB and a podcast while getting some morning sun. My synapses were like “pow pow kawbang!”.. Bliss.. Mornings can be hectic, so having the ability to prep freed up valuable mind space. I had never prepped a breakfast until I found this recipe. Game. Changer. 5/5 recommend
