Let’s get back to basics today, shall we? With these berry vanilla overnight oats!
Simple, unfussy, not at all fancy. But a total staple at our house for breakfast. And a most excellent way to put all those gorgeous summer berries to good use!
So can we talk for a second about how predictable I am when it comes to breakfast? On a normal basis I choose from one of the following three options: smoothies (and by smoothies, I really mean either this berry breakfast smoothie or a sort of updated version of this vanilla mango spinach smoothie), avocado toast or oatmeal. Aaaaand that’s about it.
And when it comes to oatmeal, I am
super crazy particular. We have steel cut oatmeal in cold weather and then overnight oats in hot weather. End of story. What can I say, I like routine! And I especially like strawberries in my oatmeal (in case that wasn’t already blatantly obvious).
Which brings us to today. I already covered my all-time favorite strawberry steel cut oatmeal, so I figured it was high time to cover my go-to overnight oats recipe (with strawberries!). How many more times do you think I can say strawberries in this post??
10 minutes. Totally portable (mason jars for the win!). And a creamy, fantastic vanilla oat base mixed in with colorful berries. It just doesn’t get much better!
