Now that I am getting busier as Noah’s Nutrition is growing, I have been looking for recipes that are high in protein and fiber but low in calories. MOST importantly, quick, easy, and filling.

This peanut butter and jelly overnight oats recipe fits that bill perfectly. It can also be a great option for those who are dairy-free or gluten-free. The swaps are simple and easily made.

The benefits of this recipe are that it is a quick grab-and-go breakfast option, high in protein and fiber, and delicious!

Ingredients Overview

Ingredients for peanut butter and jelly protein overnight oats includes peanut butter raspberries Greek yogurt milk oats protein powder

Rolled oats

I will recommend that my clients keep rolled oats as a pantry staple. Oats are whole grain, meaning they have not been processed as white flour has.

Milk

Milk is a good source of many vitamins and minerals, including calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A, D, and B12. It also contains some fat and protein.

Greek yogurt

Greek yogurt is a type of yogurt that has been strained to remove the whey, resulting in a thicker consistency. It is also higher in protein than regular yogurt. Greek yogurt also contains live and active cultures that benefit gut health.

Whey protein

Whey protein is a type of protein that is derived from dairy. It is a complete protein, meaning it contains all of the essential amino acids.

Peanut butter

Peanut butter is a good source of protein and healthy fats. It also contains vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium. Peanut butter is a high-calorie food, so it is important to monitor your portion size.

Raspberries

Raspberries are a great addition to this recipe because they add sweetness and tartness. They are also a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and manganese.

Substitutions

If you are dairy-free or gluten-free, this recipe is easily adaptable. Simple substitutions can be made to make this recipe dairy-free or gluten-free.

To make this recipe dairy-free, you can use a plant-based protein powder instead of the whey protein and a dairy-free yogurt instead of the Greek yogurt. You can also use unsweetened almond milk in place of the milk.

This recipe is technically gluten-free, but I would encourage you to check and ensure that all the ingredients you use are gluten-free.

If you are looking for a lower-calorie version of this recipe, you can use PB2 powder in place of the peanut butter. PB2 is powdered peanut butter that has had the fat and calories removed.
