PB&J Overnight Oats (How to Make Overnight Oats Vegan)
In this article you will find a delicious PB&J Overnight Oats recipe that even non-vegans will love! Honestly, they probably won’t even realize it’s not vegan! The only REAL difference is using non-dairy milk instead of cow’s milk (for various reasons)!
Before we begin, let me just say how awesome it is to be able to meal prep, or make ahead this breakfast!
Make ahead breakfasts are revolutionary, and one of the best things to make when you’re already struggling simply to get your kids out of bed to start school in the morning.
No cooking, no microwaving, nothing; simply take it out of the fridge, grab a spoon, and hand it to your child while you bring up their lessons for the day…
Or, if you send your kids to school, it’s not difficult to eat on the way there!
Total time saver! You could even have THEM make it the night before.

How to Make Kid Approved Overnight Oats Recipe
To start making this overnight oats recipe, grab your ingredients;
- Peanut Butter
- Jam (we use this healthy homemade jam that takes 5 minutes or less to make!)
- Soy Milk (or other non-dairy milk, but soy milk is usually fortified with B12)
- Maple Syrup
Grab a jar, or multiple jars if you’re making these for more than one child or batching them. We use old jam jars for these because they seem to be the perfect size.
Next, measure out all of the ingredients.
Add them to the jar- the order doesn’t matter much.
Then shake it!
Keep shaking it until it’s well mixed.
Place in fridge til the next morning, then enjoy!
Optional- leave the peanut butter out the night before and add it fresh in the morning. Even better; melt it and then add it on top in the morning and stir in!
*If your child, or whoever you are making this for, has a peanut allergy; feel free to sub in any other nut or seed butter.
