Strawberry Overnight Oats with nuts and seeds makes for a well-rounded breakfast.
Am I the last person in the world to make overnight oats? Have you made overnight oats? Please tell me I’m not the last remaining soul on this green earth to overnight an oat.
Here I’ve been cooking up hot oatmeal all my life and never realized cold oatmeal is a thing. Did you know it was a thing? It’s a thing. It’s called overnight oats. You just add your choice of milk and oats to a seal-able container and let the whole thing soak in the refer overnight. You then wake up to breakfast that has already done made itself. Because this is such a genius plan, you should congratulate yourself with breakfast dessert.
But this meal is kind of like eating breakfast dessert, because it’s so.freaking.good. AND chia seeds absorb like a million times their weight in liquid and become pudding-y when soaked, so this recipe is sort of like eating chia seed pudding for breakfast. But with oats, too. It’s an oat and chia pudding fiesta. But I digress.
I made these breakfast bowls with gluten-free rolled oats (don’t use the instant kind!), fresh strawberries, chia seeds, slivered almonds, pumpkin seeds, coconut milk, and almond milk. I know. It’s a list. But it’s worth it. It’s pretty much a parade in a bowl and you get to feed it to your body. All that protein, all them slow burning carbs, all the fiber. These bk bowls make for an excellent, well-rounded breakfast to keep the whole family happy and healthy.
