Ingredients

Strawberry Compote

  • 2 heaping cups chopped strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup

Overnight Oatmeal

  • 2 cups gluten-free old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups cow's milk or unsweetened non-dairy milk I used toasted coconut almond
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup toasted sliced Diamond of California Almonds for topping

Instructions

  • To make the compote, add strawberries and maple syrup (or honey) to a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring often, until the strawberry mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, add oats, yogurt, milk, vanilla bean paste and extract, maple syrup, and chopped strawberries to a large bowl. Stir to combine. Fold in the strawberry compote.
  • Divide the mixture between 5 glass mason jars. Place the jars in the refrigerator to chill overnight. The jars will stay fresh for up to 7 days in the fridge. Top with toasted almonds, fresh fruit, flax or hemp seeds, and granola before serving.

Notes

  1. Regular old-fashioned oats can be substituted for gluten-free old-fashioned oats if you're not following a gluten-free diet.
  2. For a vegan option, substitute equal amounts of non-dairy yogurt for Greek yogurt.
  3. If you don't have vanilla bean paste handy, add an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract or the seeds from 1 vanilla bean.
