Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats

It's Christmas week!! 5 long short days of work until Santa comes down the chimney and I get a 3-day weekend, doesn't get much better than that! I wish I had a Christmas-y recipe to share with you, but I do not. I'm going to try to do some baking toward the end of the week so I can bring some healthier treats with us on our many stops between Christmas eve and Christmas night, but I haven't quite decided what I want to make... suggestions are welcomed! 

Until then, I will share with you an overnight oats creation of mine that will make you want to eat oatmeal for every meal of the day. (As if you don't already!)


Ingredients:
1/2 cup oats
1 Tbsp All Natural Peanut Butter (peanuts and salt only)
1 Tbsp Sugar free jelly 
1/4 cup Almond Milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder 



Directions 
1. Combine everything in a bowl at night and mix well (It takes a little while to get the PB &J mixed in). You may need to add more or less almond milk depending on the consistency you like your oats.
2. Cover your bowl and sleep. 
3. In the morning, uncover and eat! You can add additional toppings if you're feeling adventurous :)
