PB & J Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are perfect for those busy mornings when you need something ready-to-go, plus it’s a healthy way to start the day. Oats contain beta-glucans, which are a kind of soluble fibre that’s been proven to lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol without changing HDL (“good”) cholesterol. There are tons of great variations you can do with overnight oats, and this PB & J one is a classic combo that’s sure to satisfy the taste buds and tummy. Make a bigger batch for a couple of days’ worth of brekkie!

Use organic ingredients when possible


1 cup frozen or fresh strawberries (can substitute with blueberries, raspberries, etc.)

1 tbsp orange juice

1-2 tbsp dark or amber maple syrup (to taste)

1 tbsp chia seeds

In a small saucepan, add the strawberries and orange juice. Warm over medium heat until bubbling, then lower the heat and continue to cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in the maple syrup and chia seeds. Pour the compote in a small container, cover and place in the fridge to set.



½ cup plain full-fat yogurt or kefir

½ cup water or milk or non-dairy milk (use a bit less for a thicker consistency)

2 tbsp natural unsalted peanut butter (smooth or crunchy), plus more for serving

Pinch sea salt

1 tbsp raw cocoa nibs, plus more for serving

1 tbsp chia seeds

½ cup rolled oats

In a mason jar or small bowl, mix together the yogurt, water, peanut butter, and sea salt. The peanut butter doesn’t need to be completely mixed into the yogurt – chunky is okay. Stir in the cocoa nibs, chia seeds and oats until fully moistened. Cover tightly and place in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, top with a few spoons of the strawberry compote and an additional spoon of peanut butter and cocoa nibs, if desired.

Any leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.
