This is such an easy and yummy make-ahead breakfast!



  • 1/2 cup of old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup of milk (we use almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup of fresh cut strawberries (you could of course use any fruit that you like instead of strawberries)
  • 1 oz of your favorite nuts or seeds, like chia, sunflower, or hemp (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar (optional)- Can substitute with honey, agave, maple syrup, jam etc.
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 16oz Mason jar (optional)


  1. Put your rolled oats and milk into a microwave safe bowl. Stir and heat for about 30 seconds in the microwave. Don’t worry if it seems runny. The oats will absorb the milk overnight.
  2. Add some sweetener of your choice and taste test to see if you want to add more.
  3. Add nuts/seeds and sliced strawberries. Stir gently.
  4. Sprinkle with some cinnamon. If you like, you can transfer the strawberry and nut oatmeal to a Mason jar and then sprinkle the cinnamon on top.
  5. Cover your bowl or Mason jar and refrigerate overnight. Eat chilled.
