Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats Ingredients
This protein-rich overnight oats recipe combines one of my favorite combinations: strawberry, banana, and almond butter. It requires very few ingredients and no cooking at all. Here’s what you need:
- banana: Strawberry banana flavor and natural sweetness of overnight oats. Make sure it’s a ripe banana.
- almond milk: Alternatively, you can use any milk in this recipe.
- Yogurt: I love using vanilla Greek yogurt in this recipe, but feel free to use whatever kind you prefer. Yogurt is the perfect protein booster. Dairy-free yogurt is also effective.
- barley: Feel free to use gluten free rolled oats If it is ok. Rolled oats will absorb the moisture from the milk and yogurt and become very creamy.
- chia seeds: more than just chia seeds Add healthy fats and fiber to your Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats recipe, but it also helps with a little thickening for the perfect texture.
- fresh strawberries: Stir fresh strawberries directly into the overnight oats and add on top when you’re ready to enjoy it, you’ll love it!
- almond butter: I love to add a little natural almond butter When you’re ready to enjoy, top these overnight oats. You can use your favorite nut butter here, or make your own like this great recipe.
Can I use steel cut oats?
Unfortunately, no, we do not recommend using steel cut oats. Because it doesn’t absorb as much liquid as rolled oats, so the texture won’t be right.

How to Make Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats

- Top & Enjoy! When ready to serve, top each overnight oat with 1 tablespoon almond butter and additional banana slices and strawberries, if desired. If you prefer a crunchier texture, add chia seeds and a healthy thick layer of homemade granola on top.
Should Oats Be Cooked Overnight?
no! Oats are left to swell and ‘cook’ overnight by absorbing the liquid from the yogurt and milk. They said magic. In fact, they’re magically creamy, flavorful, and just so perfect.
Is it okay to eat overnight oats warmed up?
That’s it! I usually eat these strawberry bananas chilled with overnight oats, but if you prefer warm oats, you can microwave them for a minute or two before serving. Be sure to stir after heating so that the consistency does not change.
