Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats recipe (1)

Hi friends!

I have to admit, there used to be a time long ago when Ilet oats sit in the pantry for way to long. I just wasn't in the habit of making them and they would go bad. So sad.

I've changed my ways and oats are now on the menu almost daily. Theyare such a powerhouse food, it's hard to ignore them.

The best part about them is how customizable they are. Think Chunky Monkey Overnight Oats, Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats, Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal, Chunky Monkey Baked Oatmeal or Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal. There are hundreds of ways to mix it up.

For this version I decided to go with one of my all-time favorite desserts and make a healthy breakfast... Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats.

Each spring, like clockwork, I always had strawberry shortcake. The Florida strawberries were in season in March and April and my Mom followed with fresh strawberry shortcake. She of course added a Sara Lee pound cake AND sugar to the strawberries. But she was Southern like that.

I'll still make her version on a special occasion, but for a day to day treat this Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oatmeal is perfect!

It's doesn't have shortcake, per say, but the cake flavor comes from adding extra vanilla to the oats.

Instead of cool whip or whipped cream, I added a dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt. You could also do plain yogurt if you don't want the added sugar.

It's topped off with a small portion of just fruit strawberry jam to imitate that strawberry juice you get in the shortcake.

You can mix it all together or serve it stacked up all pur-ty like this. Either way, my Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats recipe is a winner.

    I saw your Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats recipe this morning and I want to try it! Can you use quick-cooking oats or do you need to use regular oats?Cind

      Hi Cindy! You can, but the texture of the rolled oat is better! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you with an answer. I normally respond quicker!

    I love dessert for breakfast, and overnight oats are a fav but I go in spurts. I will do them daily for weeks, months, than it will be back to smoothies, now smoothie bowls and muesli, but I think I really need to change things up more!

    I have never made overnight oats. I always think that it would take too long to make. But I guess that's not the case. This sounds simple enough and looks delicious.

    We are big fans of overnight oats- so much that we go through a canister every few weeks! Of course, that is between the 3 of us.
    I love this version! Pinning for later!

    Oh wow, this looks amazing!
    I've never tried over night oats. I had a roommate in college who used to make them and she would set an alarm at 3am everyday to wake up and go do something with them, After a polite yelling conversation she never did it again, LOL But because of that I have never liked the over night idea.
    However, her's always looked plain. This looks absolutely fantastic and I could totally see myself making this!

    YUM! These overnight oats look amazing! So pretty! Would you believe I've never made overnight oats??? But I really gotta!! I work/ have classes in the AM, so I could really use the extra time overnight oats gives me (as opposed to just making them in the AM and putting them in a thermos, which I usually do). Thanks for the recipe!

    Yum - I can already tell this will be another favorite. I love eating overnight oats in the morning when I have a long run that evening. I eat both servings and stay full & energized all day.

    It is funny: so many people associated strawberries with this time of year, but for me, strawberries and strawberry shortcake especially signal the end of August! That is because my dad always requested (and got) strawberry shortcake with angelfood for his birthday dessert.
