Cheesecake for breakfast? Of course! These Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats are a simple and delicious breakfast that can be meal prepped and ready when you wake up. Fresh berries, cream cheese and a hint of maple in this hearty oatmeal will have you excited to wake up!

Strawberry Season is Here!

Can’t contain my excitement–all things strawberry are on my summer list. And these Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats are on the top of the breakfast rotation currently.

There is nothing like a hearty bowl of oats in the morning, but there is NOTHING like a cheesecake inspired bowl of overnight oats, am I right? Ooooh, I am right. I discovered last year with these Maple Pecan Cheesecake Overnight Oats how amazing oatmeal tasted with just a touch of cream cheese.

These overnight oats are the perfect simple breakfast that is far from boring. I love them so much because I can:

  1. Prep them ahead of time.
  2. They are ready when I wake up.
  3. Take 5 minutes to toss together.
  4. THEY TASTE LIKE CHEESECAKE!

Ok, I am a bit partial to number 4, but you get it.

New to overnight oats? Check out the FAQs in this overnight oats recipe!

What you need to make this recipe:

  1. Rolled Oats: regular or gluten free will both work great.
  2. Strawberries: Fresh or frozen will work.
  3. Cream Cheese: I use the whipped cream cheese in the tub for easier stirring–you can use cream cheese form a block, just soften it first. Keeping this one dairy free? Lots of dairy free cream cheese options out there these days!
  4. Milk: Your favorite regular or dairy free milk should be great!
  5. Chia Seeds: optional, but almost always in my overnight oats
  6. Maple Syrup: This is my favorite sweetener, but feel free to add your sweetener of choice instead.

Notes:

  • You can eat these cheesecake overnight oats hot or cold, whatever you prefer. Warm them up in the morning and toss some extra milk in if they seem a bit too thick after warming.
  • You can use some strawberry jam instead of fresh or frozen strawberries if you are all out of berries.
  • There are plenty of dairy free cream cheeses out there these days, keep this dairy free with a dairy free milk and dairy free cream cheese.

Variations:

  • Add chocolate chips–because all things are better with chocolate.
  • Make your strawberries into a compote before mixing in. Simmer strawberries with a pinch of sweetener and a squeeze of lemon juice on your stove top for about 20-30 minutes. Top your oats in the morning  with extra!
  • No strawberries? No problem! Try another berry–blueberries are amazing to sub for the strawberry cheesecake overnight oats, but raspberries or blackberries would be amazing as well!
  • Add a couple of tablespoons of vanilla or Strawberry greek yogurt. Give a flavor boost and protein boost to your overnight oats!

As far as overnight oats go, it’s fair to say that I have waaaaaay too many versions on the blog. However, every time I survey readers, I hear the feedback that they still want more overnight oats. So I gotta give you guys what you want, and what I love!
