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 oats 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:
- Use gluten-free oats
- Swap the dairy milk for unsweetened almond milk
- Use Greek yoghurt (it’s lower in lactose) or a vegan yoghurt if you can’t handle dairy
- Swap the cream cheese for a vegan cream cheese (omit the garlic powder!)
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.
