PB & J is without a doubt one of my all time favourite combinations, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. It just works so well. The sweet fruitiness of the jam balances out the creamy nutty peanut butter so well, and the textures really complement each other too. In keeping with the smoothness of the peanut butter I wanted to make this a blended oats recipe, but it works just as well if you omit the blending and mix the oats ingredients in a bowl instead.
This recipe is one of my favourite breakfasts, but I love it as an after dinner treat as well. It’s such a nice one to prep on the weekend in a big batch and enjoy all week long, it really is the gift that keeps on giving! Plus it’s full of energy and good fats to keep you going right up until lunchtime. Or elevenses, if you’re like me.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup oat milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp peanut butter, plus more for topping
- 1 tbsp jam
- Berries to decorate, optional
Add the oats, milk, chia seeds and peanut butter to a blender and whizz until smooth, then spoon into a jam jar or similar.
Top with the jam, extra peanut butter and any berries and place in the fridge with the lid on for two hours to set. Store in the fridge for up to five days.
