This easy breakfast is a killer. It’s tasty, balanced, and super simple to make. The strawberry overnight oats recipe is one of my favorites. It’s my favorite because it’s a lifesaver for busy everyday life. It’s a good idea to make double or triple portions and keep them in the fridge, assuming the servings will be eaten within 24-48 hours of preparation. The more family members you have, the more portions you’ll need 🙂
If you do not have the exact ingredients, it’s easy to modify the recipe according to what you have at home. And still tastes good.
In the original recipe, there are raspberries. This time, I had strawberry overnight oats instead of raspberry overnight oats. I use frozen strawberries, so a night in the fridge does wonders for the taste. It tastes much better than the version in the fridge for a couple of hours. The next evening, I prepared new batches in the fridge for the morning.
Strawberry Overnight Oats Recipe:
- 2 dl of fat-free yogurt quark (in the original recipe, 4 dl of fat-free yogurt)
- 2 dl of Greek yogurt (2% fat)
- 125 g of strawberries (frozen) (in the original recipe, raspberries)
- 1/2 dl of large oat flakes
- 1/2 dl of oat bran
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract (in the original recipe, 1/2 tsp of vanilla powder)
- 4 tsp of maple syrup (in the original recipe, 2 tsp of maple syrup, but I needed more to balance the bitterness of the quark)
Additionally, you can add cashews or walnuts. I would have bought walnuts for their excellent fatty acid composition, but I couldn’t find a bag I liked this time. I chose quark and Greek yogurt for their higher protein content to give a better satiety. There should have been more strawberries than in the picture.
You Can Easily Customize the Overnight Oats Recipe
So, the strawberry overnight oats recipe was my version of the overnight oats from the original recipe from the 80/20 Nutrition Workbook, which I designed in collaboration with Mari Moilanen. Frozen strawberries become watery when they melt, but I think they make the portion tastier. It’s a matter of taste.
My Plate Coach App Points
I give the portion five hearts. It has the right balance of protein, berries, and fiber. I add good fats to the portion by adding walnuts. With the My Plate Coach app, you can collect hearts and calculate your weekly 80/20 score.
The photos were taken in my kitchen in natural daylight using a mobile phone camera, and I haven’t edited them. The cover photo is from the original recipe and is Mari’s handiwork.
