All I could think about last week was peanut butter and jelly variations.

Peanut butter jelly breakfast toast with extra crunchy chia seeds. Peanut butter on a cinnamon raisin bagel (omg). Peanut butter and fresh strawberries spread on banana muffins. Peanut butter and jelly stuffed french toast.

Peanut butter and jelly forever and ever.

It’s funny, but PB&J doesn’t feel like a nostalgic food to me. My parents never excessively packed my lunch box with it, nor did they buy me those weird little pasty white crustless frozen PB&J sandwiches from Smucker’s. So I actually have no real reason or knowledge of why the flavor has been an necessity in my life as of late; however I can’t help but CRAVE it.

Speaking of PB&J, what’s your favorite combo? I usually to go with crunchy peanut butter and raspberry jam. The grape tends to be way too sweet for me; however I realize it’s what many grew up on and will forever adore. Last week I tried apricot preserves on peanut butter toast, which was fantastic. So many variations, too little time.

Today I wanted to share a recipe I created for all you PB&J lovers: Peanut Butter Jelly BAKED Oatmeal! I am having a moment with this beautiful breakfast skillet because it’s FULL of peanut butter flavor, healthy fats and provides over 8g protein per serving.

By now I think we all know that meal prep is most of the most important things you must do in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Having meals and snacks prepared for a busy week ahead prevents you from eating out, snacking on junk food, or hitting up the drive thru. This oatmeal contains ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry so it’ll be easy to whip up!

I suggest making it either the morning of or the night before, then cutting into individual servings for easy reheating throughout the week. If you’re not into peanut butter or are allergic, feel free to use almond or cashew butter. I have also found that adding in 1/2 cup diced strawberries to the recipe is exceptionally tasty.

Here’s to a nutritious breakfast and an amazing week ahead. xo.
