FAQs about this recipe

How quickly can this come together?

This can take about 5 minutes to throw together. It’s that easy.

What is the minimum amount of time this needs to be refrigerated for?

Overnight is best, but if you are pressed for time, a minimum of 5 hours should be plenty.

What is the difference between honey and white sugar?

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.

Are there health benefits to using honey?

There aren’t any real health benefits of honey. However, honey is great for cooking and can be an alternative to sugar.

I can’t find strawberries at my grocery store. What can I use instead?

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.

You use peanut butter. Could I use a different nut butter instead?

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.

I also love the addition of peanut butter in this recipe.  Yes, peanut butter…it’s a perfect compliment to the oats and Almond milk.
