If you’ve ever visited my tiny corner of the internet for even a fraction of a second, you’ll know I love overnight oats that taste like dessert. I mean, who could say no to a great big jar of cinnamon roll overnight oats or chocolate chip cookie dough overnight oatsΒ for breakfast? I know I never can. And since these recipes are healthy, I never have to. Yay!

I also get fed up of eating the same breakfast every morning. Scratch that. I get fed up if I’ve got to eat the same breakfast even once a week! So I’m always on the lookout for fun, new flavour combos. And when the idea of combining my favourite breakfast (overnight oats) with my favourite dessert (strawberry cheesecake) popped into my mind, I knew I was onto a winner!

Okay, so there’s no sweet and buttery graham cracker crust in these strawberry cheesecake overnight oats. But does that really matter? I guess you could crumble some graham crackers on top if you really want to. But you’d seriously be upping the fat and sugar content.

When you’ve got a great big jar of wonderfully creamy cheesecake-flavoured overnight oats layered with sweet, juicy strawberries, I don’t think you need to add anything else to make this healthy breakfast recipe awesome!

Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats – Low FODMAP Version

I first published these strawberry cheesecake overnight oats way back in May 2016, before I was diagnosed with IBS. The idea of living without one of my all-time favourite breakfast recipes just doesn’t bear thinking about, which is why I came up with a low FODMAP version! It’s pretty easy to make low FODMAP overnight oats:

If you’re on a low FODMAP diet, you’re probably struggling to get enough fibre into your diet. Which is where the chia seeds come in! They’re loaded with fibre and can be added to pretty much any dish really easily. If you’re not keen on chia seeds or don’t need to up your fibre intake, feel free to miss them out.

I’m never one to turn down dessert, but you know what? I find that a half serving of these overnight oats makes the perfect afternoon snack or dessert! Half a portion comes in at less than 150 calories, is sweet enough to satisfy any sugar craving and is packed full of fibre so you’ll definitely feel full.

Comments

  1. Thanks for the recipe! I’m totally making this! My daily plain oatmeal is getting pretty boring. Is it 1 or 2 tablespoons of cream cheese? I see it listed twice. I’m guessing it was unintentional.

    • Thanks so much for pointing that out, Mackenzi! You’re totally right – it’s only meant to be 1 tablespoon. I’ll fix it right now! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Sarah! I have tried this without the stevia and it’s perfectly okay – just not as sweet as I’d like it to be. The strawberries are naturally sweet, so if you haven’t got a super sweet tooth, you should be fine making this without any stevia. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much, Diana! I love experimenting with overnight oats flavours. The cheesecake adds just the right hint of creamy cheesecake flavour. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    • Excuse me while I get up off the floor after fainting at the idea of someone not loving oats! Only kidding! I eat oats every day and almost get withdrawal symptoms when I have a difference breakfast! Hope these overnight oats change your mind and turn you into an oats lover!

    • Thanks, Bintu! I don’t know the specifics, but just 1 tablespoon of chia seeds has more fibre than an entire serving of all kinds of veggies and legumes. They’re a super-easy way to increase your fibre intake πŸ™‚

    • Hi Caitlin. You can definitely use frozen strawberries! Just be aware that as they defrost, they’ll release a lot of liquid and might make the oats a bit watery. I’d recommend popping them into the microwave to defrost before using them.

  2. Thank you for this recipe! I use half and half instead of the almond milk so my husband would try it and we have a winner! He likes it and it has become a staple in our meal plan. I am looking through the rest of your site for more ideas. Again, thank you!
