Strawberry Overnight Oats topped with pecan granola.
As the end of the school year approaches we’re look forward to longer days enjoying the sun, no more rushing out the door every morning, and filling our schedule with fun family activities. I’ve mentioned before that our mornings can be a little hectic. We’re usually short on time and rely on quick breakfast ideas that help us get out the door quicker. My go-to breakfast this year has been overnight oats. Have you tried them? It’s one of the easiest meals I make and my kids love them! This Strawberry Overnight Oats recipe is a great meal when you’re on the go and it’s a healthy way to start off your morning.
Strawberry Overnight Oats
Strawberry Overnight Oats
- ½ cup milk
- 1/3 cup steel cut oats
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 3 strawberries sliced
- 1-2 teaspoons honey agave, or maple syrup
- Granola optional
- Combine ingredients in a mason jar and refrigerate overnight.
- Top with granola and enjoy!
The great thing about overnight oats is that there’s no wrong way to do it. You can adjust the milk to oats ration depending on your preference. We like to use honey but you could also leave the sweetener out of the recipe or add another teaspoon if you prefer. For the strawberry overnight oats we add a pecan granola. I’ve always been a big fan of oats so I’m glad my kids enjoy this healthy recipe as much as I do!
Keeping our family active and healthy has always been a priority for my husband and I. My husband grew up playing on city sport teams, school teams, and traveling sports teams from the age of 4 through college. Me? Not so much. Let’s just say my coordination and sports don’t mix well. Think I’m joking? I broke my foot last fall while running on a bike bath. HA! However, my husband has always wanted to have the kids involved in sports for the physical benefits as well as the lifelong friendships you develop.
As the kids get older I’m realizing how different each child is. For years I encouraged my oldest to play every sport available to him so that he could stay active all year long. In the end I found that he was miserable in certain sports and excelled in others. We now enroll them in their favorites where their strengths are and keep them moving during off seasons. This could be a simple game of basketball in front of our house, a family bike ride, or walk to the park.
I have been searching for an overnight oat recipe that uses steel cut oats. It sounds delicious and a great way to have breakfast completely ready for the kids in the morning. I will let you know how it turns out for me :)
Oh this looks so good. I can’t wait to try!
Do you have the recipe for your Pecan Granola? Sounds wonderful! Thank you.
Do you just mix the steel cut oats uncooked?
This looks delicious! We love overnight oats and I personally LOVE strawberries and granola! Thanks so much for sharing!!
