Overnight Strawberry Baked Oatmeal

Overnight Strawberry Baked Oatmeal

Ahh summertime is upon us. The strawberries are telling us that. They’re a bright, deep red. They’re juicy and sweet.

They’re so simply delicious. I love to pop off the tops then carve out the remaining stem. After I get my fill of an entire 16 oz container, I like to add seasonal fruit to any of my staple dishes. I add sliced strawberries to salads, guacamole, and muffins (more on that later!). It just made sense to add it to the my favorite baked oatmeal recipe.

Take 5 minutes to miix most of the ingredients tonight, and add the diced strawberries in the morning. After about 45 minutes you’ll have a low maintenance but feels like high maintenance breakfast! Enjoy!
