FAQs about this recipe
This can take about 5 minutes to throw together. It’s that easy.
Overnight is best, but if you are pressed for time, a minimum of 5 hours should be plenty.
Honey is higher in calories and is sweeter than white sugar. Because of this, you probably don’t need to use as much honey as you do white sugar in certain recipes. Honey also adds flavor to dishes, like this one, where white sugar does not.
There aren’t any real health benefits of honey. However, honey is great for cooking and can be an alternative to sugar.
That’s a great question. Sometimes strawberries are expensive if it is not in season, or they are sold out. If that is the case, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries would work really well in this recipe.
Yes! If you prefer other nut butters (almond butter is my favorite) or are allergic to peanut butter, you can use something else. This recipe is versatile and can be adapted to your preferences.
Now, I also believe that having ripe strawberries is key to this recipe as well. You really can’t do much if the strawberries aren’t ripe and delicious – and organic, like I mentioned in this list.
I love making this for my kids. They love this recipe, and it’s a great alternative to traditional oatmeal. I also love this make ahead egg scramble recipe for when I need to be quick in the mornings.

Hi Jodi, no the oats don’t need to be cooked (that’s the beauty of this easy breakfast). I used just plain old Kroger brand.
Hi. Do they oats need to be cooked? And what brand do you use? Thanks.
I love overnight oats too…they are so easy and so tasty. I would love to try this (or a variation of this) with blueberries. I bet it’s just as delicious!
