Let’s get back to basics today, shall we? With these berry 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.

Now, 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.

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). 

10 minutes. Totally portable. And a creamy, fantastic vanilla oat base mixed in with colorful berries.

It just doesn’t get much better.

Tips & Tricks For These Berry Overnight Oats

  1. I like to make the oats on the weekend, so breakfast is ready to go during the week. They keep well in airtight containers for about four days. You don’t have to do anything in the morning, just grab a spoon and enjoy.
  2. Like always with gluten free recipes, be sure to use certified gluten free oats if needed for your diet.
  3. Want a little crunch? I sometimes will throw some nuts right into the jars. Pistachios or sliced almonds are my personal favorites here.
  4. I find the oats perfectly, lightly sweet as written, but you may need to add more sweetener for your taste. The first time you make them, I’d encourage you to prep them as written and then just drizzle on extra maple syrup in the morning if needed (after they’ve had time to chill in the fridge and thicken up).
  5. Sometimes when I’m enjoying these at home, I’ll splash in a little extra milk right before serving. But it really just depends on my mood. Play around with what you like best.
