Strawberry Chia Overnight Oats

If you haven’t noticed lately, I’ve been on an oatmeal kick. More specifically overnight oats because it’s still hot AF here in Phoenix. They are also so easy to make so that is definitely a major plus. These strawberry chia overnight oats are no exception. With 5 ingredients, this is definitely a recipe that should be in your rotation for breakfasts.

I love having overnight oats for breakfast because it’s almost like I’m having dessert for breakfast. Who doesn’t enjoy eating dessert first thing in the morning? I sure do! This recipe is extremely versatile as you can swap out the strawberries for whatever fruit/berry is in season. You can add protein powder to get more protein first thing in the morning or use flax seeds instead of chia seeds for fiber. Either way, these oats are bound to satisfy your breakfast needs.

Let’s get cooking! 🙂

  1. Great idea! In the UK when we were in various countries staying at B & B’s, I always had to order oatmeal the night before, so I wondered if they soaked their oats. I also think they’re thicker.
