Some combinations are so good that there about a million different ways to enjoy them. When it comes to peanut butter and jelly, that number might actually be a little closer to a billion. I could eat some form of PB&J every single day. Lately, my favorite iteration these breakfast Peanut Butter + Jelly Chia Oats!
I absolutely love oatmeal! It has always been one of my go-to morning meals. Oats are filled with tons of protein and fiber, and are proven to lower cholesterol which makes them a fantastic way to start the day.
Just like PB&J, oatmeal can also be enjoyed many different ways, but I think the most delicious way is by combining all three of these staples together. The addition of omega-3 rich chia seeds makes these PB&J oats even more nutritious. And when it comes to the blueberries … can you say antioxidants?!
These oats are gluten, dairy, and refined sugar-free, require 6 simple ingredients (not including water), and take less than 10 minutes to make, prep included!
