I realized it has been a while since I made a post about oatmeal. Now you might ask, well what is so great about oatmeal? Umm only everything. I am not talking about boring old oatmeal. I am talking about flavorful, filling, and creamy overnight oats. This berry version is a lot like having berries and cream for breakfast, but without the dairy. Plus it keeps you full all morning so you aren’t tempted to have one of those breakroom donuts.
Another check in the win column for this recipe is that you can make it up to three days ahead. I typically prepare two to three servings at a time so that I don’t have to remember to make breakfast every night. I use mason jars to make singe serving portions (which double as grab and go containers on busy mornings!) but you could make a larger batch and portion it out as you go.
Ingredients for one serving:
½ cup oatmeal (not quick oats – these will get too soggy)
1 cup non-dairy unsweetened milk (I prefer either cashew or almond milk, but it’s a matter of taste)
5 strawberries, quartered or halved depending on size
1 tsp brown sugar
Place all ingredients in a jar and either stir or shake gently to combine. Place in the fridge for at least eight hours but can be left for up to three days.
Love and breakfast is the most important meal of the day,
