Strawberry Overnight Oats
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time5 mins
- 3 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 1 small vanilla bean
- 1 dash salt
- 4 cup strawberries
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
Before you go to bed, put 3 1/2 cups filtered water in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil.
Prepare the vanilla bean by slitting the bean open along its length with the tip of a small knife. Pry the bean open to expose the seeds.
Once the water has come to a boil, stir in the oats and the vanilla bean and boil for 1 minute. Turn off the heat, cover, and go to bed.
In the morning, reheat the oats in the pan.
Hull and slice half the strawberries and puree the other half in a blender or food processor until smooth.
Layer the hot oatmeal with the strawberries and strawberry puree. Serve hot with a little milk, cream, coconut milk, or almond milk. Sprinkle on chia seeds or other garnish as you like.
Serves 2-4 depending on how hungry you are :)
