Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats

I know I’m on an overnight oat spree right now. I get it.

It’s almost a ritual at this point. When I meal prep on Sundays, I make a batch of overnight oats for my husband. I did eat some of the apple pie overnight oats, but the last two batches I’ve made have been all him. I usually don’t eat breakfast in the morning, or if I do, I eat something savory.

But overnight oats are a great option for people. They’re easy to make, easy to make in batches, and are a quick and healthy grab-and-go breakfast for people. It also helps that they’re usually in cute little mason jars, too.

The apple pie overnight oats are still my favorite, but strawberry comes in a close second. I’m running out of ideas for overnight oats, so if you have any—send them my way! I’ll try anything at least once.

Keep your oat base simple. I always use:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk

I use quick oats, but I’m sure steel cut or old fashioned would work well. The oats sit for 8 hours or more, giving the old fashioned oats plenthy of time to soften up. I’m a fan of quick oats because not only are they quick, they’re cheap. Ain’t nobody got money for fancy oats in this household right now, especially with all of the stuff we have to fix (buying a house is a RACKET, I tell you).

For the best results on this batch of overnight oats, top with crushed graham crackers right before serving. You don’t want the crackers to get soggy overnight.

Enjoy!
