With less sugar than store-bought jam, these easy-to-make strawberry overnight oats are still tasty and packed with healthy fibre.


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen and thawed strawberries

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds, preferably white

  • 2 to 3 tbsp honey


  • To make strawberry jam, mash strawberries in a medium bowl with a potato masher. Stir in chia seeds and 2 tbsp honey. (add more honey if you prefer it sweeter.) Carefully divide among four 250-mL Mason jars, refrigerate until thickened, about 15 mins.

  • To make oats, combine almond milk with oats, flax meal, honey, chia seeds, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl. Pour into jars, overtop of jam. Cover and refrigerate overnight before serving.

  • Serve topped with sliced fresh strawberries, if desired. Refrigerate for up to 5 days.
