Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oatmeal

I have another fantastic overnight oatmeal recipe for you today. Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oatmeal. 🙂 This recipe uses the fewest ingredients and is probably the simplest of my oatmeal recipes. But if you’re a strawberry lover like me, you’ll enjoy this one just as much.

I started up making large batches of oatmeal for my husband for breakfast when his cholesterol levels came back too high. Steel-cut oats are so much healthier than regular, but they’re much better slow-cooked for a creamier, softer texture that isn’t chewy or tough. I made all the recipes vegan since he needs to stay off extra high cholesterol foods. So there’s no butter or milk in these recipes. Instead, I use oat milk which increases the fiber and tastes even better than almond milk. I get it at our local Walmart, but I have to get it early in the mornings before they sell out.

I also made this recipe sugar free since sugar increases cholesterol levels as well. (Go figure!) You can add a sprinkle of brown sugar or maple syrup on top of each serving if you like, but it’s actually pretty tasty and sweet enough as it is. If you add additional sliced strawberries on top of each bowlful, you’ll certainly find that sugar is not needed.

The one product that will be helpful for this recipe is a programmable crockpot. This recipe only takes 5 hours to be completely done. If you let it cook longer the oatmeal will start sticking to the sides of the crockpot and will dry out. So setting a timer for when you want the oatmeal finished is a real plus.

Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oatmeal is wonderful for family breakfasts, but it’s also spectacular for company or holiday breakfasts. Prepare it the night before and you’re good to go in the morning. I usually break it down into small containers and either refrigerate it for the week, or freeze for later use. Just add a dollop of oat milk when reheating and it turns out heavenly. Let’s go!

Cook 5 hours on low setting. If possible, stir once or twice during cooking (if you cook during the day time). You don’t have to do this, but I like it stirred up a little when I can.

Instructions

  3. Cook on low heat overnight for approximately 5 hours.
  4. Serve garnished with fresh strawberries slices, if desired.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: You can portion out the servings into microwavable glass or plastic containers. Refrigerate for up to one week and microwave before serving.

NOTE: You can also freeze the cooked oatmeal in the same type of containers. Remove from freezer and allow to defrost in refrigerator a day or so before using and microwaving as noted above.

NOTE: Overnight oatmeal is something of a misnomer. This recipe was done in about 5 hours in my slowest crockpot.

NOTE: The key to this recipe is not overcooking the oatmeal so it sticks onto the sides of the crockpot. Five to six hours is really all you need.

NOTE: This recipe is easiest if you have a slow cooker with a programmable timer. Set the end time for when you want to serve breakfast.

NOTE: Oat Milk can be purchased at Walmart and other grocery stores. You will have to go early to Walmart to purchase it because they sell out very quickly.

NOTE: This is NOT a very sweet oatmeal on it's own. You will need to add fresh strawberries or even sliced banana on top of each serving to make the oatmeal sweet enough without sugar. If you don't need a sugar-free recipe, I recommend adding 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed) when cooking the oatmeal in the crockpot. That will provide plenty of sweetness for each serving.
