Peanut Butter & Jam is a match made in heaven, and when paired together, you simply can’t go wrong!
Have you ever thought about adding matcha into the mix?
‘It’s a Matcha made in heaven!’
“Hmm, it could work, right?!”
I thought also when creating this delicious breakfast idea - spiked with matcha to add a new depth of flavour and bonus energy boost.
Matcha is a green tea powder, which contains caffeine.
It's often considered a gentler form of coffee, as the energy released is long lasting, rather than coffee simultaneously giving you a boost.
This recipe is an overnight oats creation, meaning it’s prepared the night before you wish to eat it.
This is great if you’re often running to get out the door and when packed in a container or jar, it can easily be enjoyed on the bus or at your desk.

½ cup porridge oats
1 tsp chia seeds
½ tsp matcha powder (optional)
½ tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
250ml milk of choice
¼ tsp vanilla extract
1- 2 tsp honey or liquid sweetener of choice
1 ripe banana, sliced into coins
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 tbsp jam of choice
(I tend to go for one fruit sweetened rather than sweetened with sugar)
The night before you wish to enjoy your overnight oats - combine the oats, chia seeds, matcha powder, cinnamon & salt in a bowl or jar.
Stir until combined, before stirring in the milk, vanilla & honey.
The following morning top your oats with banana coins and a dollop of peanut butter & jam.
Feel free to add additional toppings like cacao nibs and fresh/ frozen berries.
