I have discovered overnight oats very recently as only around March time this year. It’s not that I haven’t heard of them before cause I have. The thing is, they didn’t appeal to me much. I’m a porridge girl you see and the idea of cold oats didn’t really agree with me!

It was also around that time when I started my food blogging journey and have been introduced to hot yoga which I completely fell in love with from the first class. I decided to look into the whole overnight oats thingy with a bit more enthusiasm as it could prove to be perfect instant brekkie on a really busy mornings when time is so precious. It also sounded as it could be a perfect sustenance before my sweaty yoga class! Needless to say, I tried it, I loved it and have been making lots of different variations since. I simply cannot get enough.

Strawberry Fields Overnight Oats are my personal favourite and oh so appropriate at this time of year when these gorgeous fruits are at their best. Plus they are so quick and easy to prepare!

Toppings:

When it comes to toppings on these lovely oats, I must admit I’m quite a purist. For me all you need is a drizzle of honey with a sprinkle of your favourite granola for crunch. I do like the difference in texture granola gives you against soft, mushy oats – yum! Feel free to use any granola you like homemade or store-bought – whatever you fancy! The one I like at the moment is Super Berry Granola from Lidl which is delicious.

My recipe yields 3 servings and as it can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days it is perfect for one person. If there are more of you , simply double the recipe! I usually keep my oats in little kilner style clip on glass jars or simply in my favourite cereal bowl covered in clingfilm. Use whatever you’ve got!

    Your post spoke to the exact reason that I haven’t yet tried overnight oats. I love your idea of using granola to round out the texture a bit. This really sounds delicious: you’ve inspired me to give overnight oats a try!

      Thanks so much Michelle! Really pleased to hear that 🙂 Granola is definitely a great little crunchy topping for this quick brekkie! I think you might be just like myself, once you’ve tried overnight oats there will be no way back 😉

    I resisted trying overnight oats for a long time too! I also thought I wouldn’t like them and was pleasantly surprised when I did, and realised what I’d been missing out on too! Thanks so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice

      Thanks Jacqui! Nothing will beat good, old porridge but these strawberry oats make nice little change and require no hassle in the morning. Taste good too! 🙂 I hope you like these.

    Beautiful breakfast, summery and colourful. I confess I’m not the biggest fan of overnight oats, I still prefer them cooked, I mostly eat them for health reasons.

      Thank you! 🙂 If I were to choose between the two it would be porridge for me too. You cannot beat overnight oats for convenience though plus I do like the taste especially when ‘injected’ with lots of fruit. x

    Do the strawberries have to be blended, by the way? Or can they just be chopped up?

      I would blend them as puree is what I used as a liquid in this recipe for the oats to soak up. Alternatively, mash them up in a bowl with a fork and then mix all the mashed up strawberries (and the juice) with your oats. Hope that helps. x

    This is one of my fave breakfasts, but I need to get myself back into the right zone of being organised enough to get them ready the night before! I love your little touch of sprinkling granola on top for some crunch too. Thanks for entering your recipe into the summer round of Simple and in Season.
