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.

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.
