It’s time you reinvent your PB&J for breakfast! This Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Oatmeal recipe is easy to make, packed with great macros, and has all the right flavors. If you’re looking for a delicious and healthy way to start your day then you’ve come to the right place!

You can make this recipe either on the stovetop or in the microwave. We’re using the microwave today so you’ll need a microwavable bowl if you’re following the steps below.

Add right into your bowl 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of unsweetened milk substitute, and 1/4 cup of water.

Give those a quick mix and microwave your soon to be peanut butter & jelly protein oatmeal for around 2 minutes. Microwave time can vary here depending on how powerful your microwave is so keep that in mind!

While still hot add in 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of your choice jelly, and 1 scoop of a vanilla protein powder.

Mix and match your jelly and protein powder flavors to switch up this recipe! Sugar free, strawberry, chocolate, and so on.

Let us know what creative spins you put on it in the comments below.

Diet tip? You can cut down on the fat in the recipe by using 2 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter instead of regular peanut butter.

Mix everything together and optionally top it! I topped my peanut butter & jelly protein oatmeal with 1/4 ounce of some unsalted peanuts.

    Good morning, Derek 🌄. How are you? I’m fine 😊. Today I tried peanut butter 🥜 and jelly 🍓 protein oatmeal that I made. I added a splash of milk 🥛 so that it has a good consistency and pistachios on top. WOW 😯! It tested very delicious 😋, nutritious, melt in your mouth, well-flavored, and heavenly 😇. I enjoyed it very much 😀. Your recipe is delightful 🙂.

    Hey Derek,
    I absolutely love your videos, man. Always great work. I would really love if you started putting more of your workout tips in them. The one video i saw with the tip, you said to focus on drawing your elbows back to help squeeze the back muscles, and that helped me infinitely.
    Thanks a bunch
