Strawberry Peanut Overnight Oats
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 2
My favorite way to assemble overnight oats is to use Mason jars. They come in really handy if you or the kids are too busy to sit down to breakfast at home, because you can grab a jar (and a spoon!) and eat breakfast at your desk ... or on the way to school. By the way, you can use any favorite berry in this recipe, and if you don't have fresh strawberries, you can use frozen. Just thaw slightly first before dicing.
  • 1 cup low-fat strawberry kefir
  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 4 to 5 large strawberries cut into ¼-inch dice, (2/3 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 2 ounces lightly salted dry roasted peanuts, roughly chopped and divided
  • Optional toppings: Sliced bananas, berries, unsweetened coconut chips
  1. Divide the kefir, oats, strawberries, and chia seeds evenly between two pint-size Mason jars. Add 3 tablespoons of the chopped peanuts to each jar. (Reserve the remaining peanuts for topping.)
  2. Secure the lids, and shake very well until everything is combined. (Your kids can definitely help you shake.)
  3. Place the jars in the refrigerator overnight. Before serving, stir the contents of each jar to combine all the flavors. Eat from the jar or transfer to bowls and top with the remaining peanuts and optional toppings as desired.
One serving also has 45% vitamin C, 20% calcium, and 10% iron.
