Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats Recipe – Runner Breakfast or Post Run Snack

40


This strawberry shortcake overnight oats recipe is an easy and healthy breakfast for runners or post-run snack. Make it ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about making breakfast  (and can use that time to stretch).

The good news is strawberries are in season! I’ve spotted the local farms selling them from booths set up all around Orange County in random parking lots. That’s how I know they’re in season – and they are so delicious fresh from the farms!!

So strawberries were on my mind but I didn’t get them from the local farm booth… that was a mistake. I have 2 pounds of the fruit and this batch is not very sweet. Womp womp.

But I used them in this Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats and it was delicious!! This recipe suggests using a tablespoon of sugar on the chopped strawberries – it’s optional but does help them breakdown and get even more juicy overnight.

Overnight oats is a great post-run meal or snack because it has a good combo of carbs and protein to refuel your body. This can be mixed together before a run or overnight – just make sure you let it set for at least 2 hours.
