21 Day Fix - Peanut Butter and "Jelly" Overnight Oats

I love me some oatmeal.  Especially in the fall.

A few years ago I discovered overnight oats, and became an instant fan.  As I was mulling over recipes to try and "makeover" for 21 day fix, this one came to me and it's perfect.

This is just one of many variations you could do.  Overnight oats are basically whatever you want them to be.  To make them 21 day fix friendly, I simply swapped out the milk for water, and honestly you couldn't even tell the difference.

This is a great for a quick lunch on the go (especially if you have mason jars around, perfect container for it!), and it's really easy and fast to make.

Of course, there isn't really jelly, but I always loved peanut butter and strawberry jelly, so this is my little twist on that.

Not to mention, delicious and filling!

Peanut Butter and "Jelly" Overnight Oats

1/2 yellow of oats, uncooked (I do end up counting this as a full yellow though because of the way oats are measured on 21 day fix!)
1 red of greek yogurt
1 purple of chopped strawberries
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. natural creamy peanut butter
Stevia to taste (or a tsp. of vanilla extract)

Combine all ingredients in mason jar, close and shake!  That's it!  Put it in the fridge overnight and enjoy the next morning!


  1. This looks delicious, I can't wait to try it!! What kind of oats do you use?

  2. Hi! I've actually used both steel cut oats and just regular old Trader Joe's quick cooking oats. Both are terrific!

    1. Thanks for the response, I'm making it tonight for breakfast in the morning!

  3. Hi, is the greek yogurt necessary? I am unfortunately dairy free and struggling to find an overnight oats like this w/o yogurt

  4. Hi! I've made it with just almond milk (or your dairy free sub of choice). I use a little less tho because having just milk will make it a little less thick.
