This strawberry overnight oats is a quick and easy vegan breakfast recipe. Perfect for when you are having a busy morning.
As I mentioned many times before, breakfast shouldn't take a too long time to prepare. Standing in the kitchen early in the morning, making pancakes or some other breakfast dishes that take too long is almost never happening in my kitchen. I like (LOOOVE!!) pancakes, but its not something I eat in the morning, ever.
A few weeks ago I took a personality test online, and what I found out was a bit scary. It´s like they know me. They know how I think, how I react in different situations etc. An interesting thing about the result is that it said I'm lazy but creative. And yes that is correct. That sounds like me.
So maybe your first thought is that being lazy is a bad thing but in my case, it's not. It's a good thing.
I'm always trying to skip unnecessary steps because of my laziness (like making this strawberry overnight oats recipe in the evening for a quick breakfast in the morning) in creative ways that sometimes turn out great. And hey, why spend unnecessary time on something that's not worth it? Like those yummy sounding pancakes, I talked about earlier. Why waste my precious morning on making breakfast, when I can, with just a little creativity, prepare everything the night ahead and have a delicious meal in the morning.
So now that you know that I'm not a-pancake-making-in-the-morning-person and after all my talking about those damn pancakes, you start to crave them, you maybe would like to try my savory pancake (crepes) recipe with mushrooms and cashew cream or sweet crepes with raspberry chia jam.
Yes, they are. Oats are one of the healthiest grains on earth. They are full of nutrients and fiber.
If made right they taste like creamy spoonable porridge. But if the oats-liquid ratio is off, they can become soggy.
Strawberry overnight oats
- ½ cup (1,2 dl) rolled oats
- ½ cup (1,2 dl) soy yogurt
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp agave syrup
- ½ cup (1,2 dl) oat milk or other plant-based milk
- ½ lb (250 g) fresh strawberries
- pinch of salt
- The night before, add all ingredients except fresh strawberries to a bowl and stir until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, add strawberries and use a fork to mash them up to your desired consistency.
- Take two jars and spoon ¼ of the oat mixture into each one. Spoon ¼ of the mashed strawberries into each jar. Repeat the process with oat mixture and top with remaining mashed strawberries.
- Cover the jars and place them in the fridge overnight.
