The power of peanut butter, the satisfying fullness from oats, the Omega-3s from chia seeds. Overnight oatmeal is what we all look forward to when the summer mornings are hot and the sweat starts early.

I cannot lie, as much as I hate finishing a jar of Bliss Nut Butter, I love eating my oats from the jar. Bonus if I remember to make the oats the night before, because that means they are cold! Yes, just like how I take my coffee in the summer, I will gladly take my oats equally as chilled.

Let’s talk about chia seeds, the secret addition to both this recipe and some Bliss Nut Butter products that has me swooning.

Chia Seeds contain all those heart healthy omega-3s that reduce inflammation. They also provide an antioxidant punch similar to blueberries and the correct calcium to magnesium ratio ideal for the skeletal and nervous system. Just 2 tablespoons of chia seeds provide 98 calories of energy and 13% of your daily calcium. They are also high in fiber to help the digestive system out a bit.
I simply love the way they gel up and thicken whatever I am making. As a lover of thick smoothies, banana bowls and oats, adding chia seeds is a welcome addition to my meals.

Before I give you the recipe, it’s Wednesday so I know everyone wants to know what I’ve been eating. Thank you to JenArman and Laura for hosting!

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

From at

Prep: Yield: 1Total:

You'll Need...

  • 3-4 tablespoons Bliss Nut Butter original peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 scoop vanilla flavored protein powder (I use Orgain, Plant Fusion or Vega)
  • 3 tablespoons blackberry jam
  • 1/4 cup granola

Directions

  1. Mix together milk and protein powder in a cereal bowl.
  2. Add in the oats and stir until combined.
  3. Stir in chia seeds.
  4. If the peanut butter is already in the jar, just pour oat mixture into the jar. If not, add your peanut butter to the bowl.
  5. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave another thirty. Stir. The peanut butter should be mixing into the oats, but still in a few globs in the jar.
  6. Store in the fridge overnight. In the morning, top with jam and granola.

Enjoy!

  1. Overnight oats in the jar are the absolute best kind! I love Bliss Nut Butter, and this is such a good way to have it. The way you staged the jar is also really pretty Ellie. 🙂

  2. I never thought of adding chia seeds to oats, but I can see how that would make them really thick and creamy. I’m with you–thick and hearty all the way! Sometimes the oats here at the YMCA come out a little watery, and I’m always disappointed. 🙁 That’s another reason I sometimes almost prefer quick oats to rolled–the texture is so creamy.
    Also, I love the idea of putting your overnight oats in an empty/almost-empty nut butter jar.

    1. I feel ya on that. I just made steel cut oats in a slow cooker, and if you decrease the water to a 3:1 ratio, they turn out beautifully thick and delicious!

  3. The thicker the better when it comes to overnight oats! But they’re even better when eaten out of a nut butter jar! <3

    All of your eats look so good! My favourite peanut butter at the moment is dark roasted natural crunchy PB…. SO good!
