If you love overnight oats, then you’ll love these peanut butter overnight oats! Just like my classic overnight oats recipe, with added peanut butter and a little jam for natural sweetness.

Peanut butter adds protein and healthy fats to keep you full and energized all morning. The nutty flavor also perfectly complements the creamy oats.

These peanut butter overnight oats are great for busy mornings or for weeks when you want to get ahead on meal prep. See below for tips and more details, or scroll down to the full recipe card at the bottom.

If you’re new to making oats this way, I recommend reading my ultimate guide to overnight oats, which goes through optimal ratios, add-in options, and variations.

Overnight Oats With Peanut Butter

Ingredient Notes

  • Rolled Oats: rolled oats are the best for the texture of overnight oats, but you can use instant oats instead if you’d like. Steel-cut oats or Scottish oats won’t work the same way.
  • Chia Seeds: I like adding chia seeds for added protein and fiber, but it’s optional.
  • Peanut Butter: If you don’t like peanut butter or want a different option, almond butter or sunflower seed butter will also work.
  • Raspberry Jam: I usually use maple syrup in my regular overnight oat recipe, but I prefer the addition of raspberry jam for sweetness in this version. Strawberry jam or mashed berries would also work. Or, you can omit it altogether.
  • Milk: For lower-calorie overnight oats, you can use unsweetened almond milk, which I calculated in the nutritionals for this recipe. For additional protein, use soy or cow’s milk, which will add an additional 8 grams of protein per serving.
