This is a fun breakfast that everyone will love. PB&J overnight oatmeal is definitely one of the more kid friendly flavors we have come up with. You can use any flavor of jam you prefer, as well as crunchy or smooth peanut butter. I love that my kids can help me assemble these. It always makes it easier to get them to eat something healthy when they can take part in making it with me. Letting them take turns layering the oatmeal and jam is a great method of teaching them teamwork while helping make my job easier in the kitchen!
