Oatmeal in a jar? Sign me up! Wake up in the morning to a delicious and healthy Berry Overnight Oatmeal. This overnight oats recipe is satisfying, delicious and filled with fresh berries.
I am so excited strawberry season on our is here. That also means farm life is pretty hectic in our home. Breakfast on the run is pretty much a given in this house. This easy Berry Overnight Oatmeal is the perfect answer to a busy morning.
While breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it is often a hurried event for my family. The reality is we work A LOT. That’s what farmers do.
Breakfast sometimes takes a back seat, which it shouldn’t. For this reason, I like to make breakfasts that can be enjoyed “on the run”.
This Berry Overnight Oatmeal recipe is just one of my “grab and go” breakfasts that I have stored in my top-secret arsenal. Well, it’s not really top-secret since I am sharing it with you. It just sounded really important writing it that way.
And what better way to enjoy the fresh berries we are picking now than in an easy mason jar recipe. And if you are a regular here in my farmhouse kitchen, you know I LOVE mason jars. If you know, you know.
What Are Overnight Oats?
Overnight oatmeal is oats mixed with milk (or any non-dairy milk of choice) and allowing the mixture to sit overnight in the refrigerator.
Overnight oats can be served hot or cold. It’s totally up to you. I prefer to warm mine up. So when I take a jar out of the refrigerator in the morning, I just pop in the microwave for a minute to take the chill out.
Overnight oatmeal is DA-BOMB! So many flavor combinations out there and this one is perfect for this time of year. We are smack dab in the middle of strawberry season here on our farm.
Strawberry season gets me so excited. I know you have heard me say this a million times, but there is nothing like a Jersey strawberry, red through and through and sweet as can be.
What Do I Need To Make Overnight Oats?
My Berry Overnight Oatmeal recipe is full of lots of healthy goodness too. Here are the ingredients needed.
- Old Fashioned Oats
- Chia Seeds (optional)
- Greek yogurt
- Milk of Choice (Milk, Almond Milk, Soy Milk, etc.)]
- Strawberries, blueberries and raspberries
- Chopped nuts (I like pecans or walnuts but you can use any nut you like)
How To Make Overnight Oats?
This is where you can get creative with your oatmeal to your liking by adding any fruit you like. I love to serve overnight oatmeal in mason jars.
You can either spoon the oatmeal into the jars right after your mix it the night before or spoon it in the morning. Another great thing about mason jars is that they are portable.
Put the lid on, grab a spoon and you have a great grab and go breakfast!
