It’s been a while since I posted a breakfast recipe so today I am sharing Strawberry Peanut Butter Overnight Oats. Overnight oats are the most convenient breakfast idea I know – yes, you do have to put all the ingredients together but since it’s done in advance all you have to do in the morning is take off the lid and enjoy it.
You may have noticed that the recipe contains quite a large amount of fresh strawberries. This is because as the oats expand overnight they will inevitably absorb some of the strawberry flavour. Some of the strawberries have been chopped, rather than pureed, so the strawberry flavour really comes through in this recipe.
I have swapped milk for a bit of ricotta cheese, which creates a rich and creamy texture. With a little bit of help from the peanut butter, of course. I used crunchy peanut butter, but you can use smooth if you prefer. The amount of honey you use in this recipe really depends on your individual preference – 1.5 tablespoons is moderately sweet so feel free to use more or less.
The proportions used in this recipe yield 2 portions of these creamy, delicious Strawberry Peanut Butter Overnight Oats – so the recipe is not too calorific despite the peanut butter and the ricotta:).
Comments, questions, stories? I love to know your thoughts so do share them before you go:)
