I like to keep things simple in the morning, so I’ve been kicking off my days by making my Quaker® Oats oatmeal a little fancier than normal!

I discovered the magic of overnight oatmeal last year, and it’s become my go-to for weekday meals. On Sunday nights I usually make a big batch in a few mason jars, mixing up the toppings from fruits to chocolate chips, to sliced almonds and anything else in my cabinets that sounds delicious mixed with overnight oats. It’s a huge relief to be able to grab my breakfast before running out the door {usually at least 10 minutes late…} and actually have something tasty to eat at my desk while diving into a morning full of emails.

Last weekend I still wasn’t over overnight oats, so I swing by the closest Target to grab an extra large container of old fashioned oats and everything else I needed for an epic oatmeal treat. Overnight oats usually call for rolled oats, but pretty much any kind will do! Recipe (3 of 3)

As a PB & J lover {I seriously ate one everyday for a few years back in grade school!}, I decided to whip up my own interpretation in overnight oats form for Quaker’s Bring Your Best Bowl contest!  Even though I mostly winged the recipe, it turned out super delicious – and is probably one of my new favorite Quaker® Oats recipe to date. Try it for yourself and let me know if you happen to love it as much as I do! PB-And-J-Overnight-Oats (7 of 7)Peanut Butter & Jelly Overnight Oats

• Mix the peanut butter, oats and almond milk together in a bowl and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
