Whole Food Ingredients

This easy recipe for overnight oats with strawberries is full of healthy wholesome ingredients. It involves no cooking and you get a nutritious breakfast with minimal effort.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • rolled oats – rolled oats or old-fashioned oats work best for overnight oats, use gluten-free certified if necessary.
  • dairy-free milk – I used unsweetened oat milk, but any non-dairy milk is fine, like almond milk, cashew milk, soy milk, etc.
  • chia seeds – chia seeds will thicken the oats overnight, but they will also add heart-healthy omega-3 fats.
  • dates – I chopped regular pitted dates. They sweeten the overnight oats naturally and are rich in fiber and minerals. Plus, you don’t need to use processed sweeteners.
  • strawberries – I used frozen strawberries. First, you’ll need to thaw them and then mash with a fork or chop them thinly with a knife. You can also use fresh strawberries.
  • vanilla – it enhances the flavor of the oats, you can use pure vanilla extract or vanilla powder
