Ingredients to Make the Best Strawberry Overnight Oats Recipe:

Wholesome ingredients for quick oatmeal with strawberries
  • Oats – Old fashioned rolled oats or quick oats. I used gluten-free oats.
  • Fresh strawberries – Powerful antioxidant superfood with a unique mouth-watering flavor. You can use frozen too.
  • Plant-based milk – I used cashew milk but feel free to use your favorite dairy-free milk.
  • Ground flaxseed – I prefer to use it ground because it is easier to digest and to reap the most nutritional benefit from the flax seeds.
  • Chia seeds – I love it because it abounds in fiber and omega 3 acids. Meanwhile giving the oats that creamy, pudding-like texture. Yum!
  • Maple syrup – To achieve that perfect sweetness. You can substitute it with date syrup or agave. It is up to you which sweetener you prefer.
  • Raw pumpkin seeds – another powerhouse rich in valuable nutrients like magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, and other valuable nutrients.
  • Banana – I don’t have to mention the benefits of this pleasant low-calorie fruit. Bananas boost your digestive and heart health due to their nutrient-dense content.

Time needed: 8 hours and 5 minutes.

How to make strawberry overnight oats from scratch?

  1. Combine all ingredients

    To begin, in a jar or airtight container, simply combine old-fashioned rolled/quick oats, chia seeds, ground flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, halved strawberries, maple syrup, and cashew milk ( or your favorite non-dairy milk like almond milk or oat milk). Mix it all well, seal the container and let it seat overnight in the fridge.

  2. Decorate and enjoy

    In the morning, slice one banana and 4-5 fresh strawberries, decorate your oatmeal, and enjoy it cold straight from the fridge. Also, if you prefer it warm, you can heat it in the microwave before adding the fruit. I find this ratio of milk and oats to yield the perfect consistency but you can add more milk if you like. Your healthy breakfast is ready to enjoy!

Are strawberry overnight oats healthy or not?

Are overnight oats healthy for weight loss?

Oats are definitely one of the highly beneficial foods for all those who want to lose weight and maintain a balanced diet. They are a good source of carbs and dietary fiber (including the potent beta-glucan fiber) which keeps you full for a long period of time. In fact, they are more digestible after being soaked overnight. This makes them a perfect food for a flat stomach. In, addition they boost your mood and energy levels while lowering your cholesterol and blood sugar and reducing the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Why are overnight oats good for you?

Because of their very high fibre content, overnight oats help you with clearing your digestive tract and improving your metabolism. Coupled with fresh strawberries, bananas, and other super seeds they are full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. An ideal quick meal with minimal preparation that keeps you full for hours.

Notes

  • Also, if you prefer it warm, you can heat it in the microwave before adding the topping of banana and strawberries.
  • Depending on your taste, add 2 tbsp maple syrup, agave, or date syrup. I find it perfectly sweet just with 1 tbsp of it.
  • It is best for the oats to soak overnight, but you can make them for 2-3 hours if you are in the rush. They’ll still be delish!
