Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal Cups

These Peanut Butter and Jelly Oatmeal Cups are a fun and easy meal prep breakfast to have on hand throughout the week. Plus, they’re kid friendly! What’s more fun than food that’s pb&j flavored?! It instantly elevates a recipe, in my opinion at least! These are also easily made gluten free if you use gluten free rolled oats. More about that later though. Let’s get to the recipe!

Recipe Tips:

So these peanut butter and jelly oatmeal cups call for oat flour. You might be thinking- it only needs 2 tbsp and I don’t have any on hand. UGH! But luckily, it’s super easy to make! You can blend 1 cup of your rolled oats in a food processor for about 2 minutes and then ta-da! You have 1 cup of oat flour. This recipe only calls for 2 tbsp so you can make only that if you want. I always like to make more so I have extra on hand.

You can use any nut butter you want to sub in for the peanut butter.

I made homemade jam for this recipe but store bought works just as well! The homemade jam recipe only takes 10 minutes though and it’s delicious! You can use any type of fruit you want in the homemade jam recipe.
