Coconut Strawberry Overnight Oats

Coconut Strawberry Overnight Oats.  As you know, I just love my oats.  And my favorite way to eat them is in the form of overnight oats.

Overnight oats, or Oats in a Jar, are so easy and you don’t even need to cook them!  This coconut strawberry overnight oats is my newest creation.

You can make these with either rolled oats or steel cut oats.  I like steel cut oats myself.  They will retain a slight crunch that I like.

If you like a smoother oatmeal, feel free to use rolled oats instead.  These overnight oats are gluten free and vegan. 🙂  If you are not gluten free, feel free to use regular oats.  That is what I do. 🙂

You can make up 5 of these at a time for healthy breakfasts all week.  And since they are already in a jar, they travel great!  Definitely give them a try.

Recipe Notes

I make 5 of these jars at a time for easy breakfasts all week. They are great to take to work as well. The strawberries should be fine in the jar for a night or two, but if you plan to make more than two at a time, add the strawberries in right before you eat it. Enjoy!

  4. I made this last night and just had some this morning! Very tasty! This is the first one I've liked cold =) How many servings does the above recipe make?
  5. Love your recipe, and it is a perfect Diabetic friendly recipe! I was looking for an overnight oats recipe that used steel cut oats. So happy to see your recipe on Healthy Aperture! Take care, Terra
  6. I have never tried these before but certainly will now. However I will try adding hemphearts as they are also part of my daily food intake.
  7. I made it last night it was really yummy. My husband and daughter loved it. I added it some dates and pecans. Thank you for the receipe this by far is my fav overnight oat receipe :))
  8. This looks delicious. I am not a vegan and I eat dairy - do you think regular milk can be substituted for the Almond milk? I am allergic to Almond milk.
  9. Melissa, I have been following a low FODMAPS diet and it limits oats to just a 1/4 cup serving at a time. I would like to do overnight oats and I wondering if you can think of something else to bulk it up a little bit so that I'm not hungry too soon with the reduced portion of oats? Thanks so much!
      1. Melissa, I wanted to let you know that I increased the milk to 3/4 cup, increased the chia seeds to 1 T, and added a few more strawberries and it was delicious and filling! I have tried overnight oats in the past and I really wanted to like them, but the previous recipes I tried (not yours) were bland. I think that the coconut really makes a difference! Your recipes are great! I have tried a bunch and I have loved all of them and I have been able to tailor most of them to be low FODMAPS. Thanks again!
  10. Verdict is in - hubby and I loved! I used organic rolled oats and ended up adding about 2/3 cup almond milk. I was too lazy to chop a date so used the maple syrup. This morning I stirred in about a tablespoon of sunflower seeds. Next time - I will use a combo of syrup and date, chop the strawberry in to smaller pieces so it is all through the oatmeal. I prefer this version to the yogurt one I have been making for a few years and look forward to adding different fruits/berries this summer!
  11. I really would love to try this recipe but I only have quick cooking oats. Could I just use them and make it in the AM right before I eat it??
    1. I always have quick oats on hand because of the convenience, so ever since I started testing out these recipes that's what I have used. I've never tried regular oats so I don't have anything to compare the quick oats to, but I definitely don't think they're mushy. They always turn out great!
