Some combinations are so good that there about a million different ways to enjoy them. When it comes to peanut butter and jelly, there might actually be a billion. I could eat some form of pb+j every single day. Lately, my favorite is for breakfast with these 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!
