These rich and creamy strawberry overnight oats with peanut butter make a delicious, quick and easy, nutritious breakfast – perfect for busy adults and fussy children alike.
Today I am sharing a delicious recipe for strawberry peanut butter overnight oats.
Overnight oats are the most convenient breakfast idea I know. Just throw all the ingredients together, stir and refrigerate overnight. That’s how it basically works and the best thing about it is that you can create endless flavour combinations! All you have to do in the morning is give it a stir and enjoy your oats creation!
Strawberry overnight oats
This recipe definitely does not skimp on ingredients. It’s bursting with strawberries!
The reason I used a lot of strawberries is that as the oats expand overnight they will inevitably absorb some of the strawberry flavour. So I wanted to ensure it doesn’t get lost in this recipe. I’ve pureed most of the strawberries, chopped the rest and combined with the other ingredient. That way the strawberry flavour really comes through in this recipe.
Although I am using fresh strawberries this does not need to be a seasonal recipe (although strawberries are available all year round they really are at their best when they are in season). If you prefer you can use frozen strawberries (the pieces will thaw in the oats mixture overnight).
Overnight oats with peanut butter
Peanut butter adds an extra nutrition boost to this strawberry overnight oats recipe. It’s high in protein so ideal to enjoy for breakfast. Peanut butter may not be the most typical choice of ingredient to pair with strawberries but this flavour combination is surprisingly successful. But don’t take my word for it, make this recipe and see for yourself!
I used crunchy peanut butter, but you can use smooth if you prefer.
The strawberries have replaced the milk in this overnight oats recipe, though I also added a bit of ricotta cheese for a richer, creamier texture. The amount of honey in this recipe really depends on how sweet you want your breakfast to be. 1.5 tablespoons of honey makes moderately sweet overnight oats so feel free to adjust this amount to suit your preference.
The proportions used in this recipe yield 2 portions of overnight oats.
