Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Oats

Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Oats topped with Strawberries

Woof. Talk about a slow start to the week. As our flight home from Scottsdale was about to take off Sunday evening, I began to feel nauseous. Brushing it off as motion sickness, I didn’t think much of it … I threw up at least twelve times. Basically a living nightmare when you’re on a redeye sitting middle seat between two sleeping people. I couldn’t eat, drink or move from my bed all day yesterday. Another girl on our flight was ill and actually passed out in the aisle (this plane was a full-blown disaster), so I’m assuming I got some nasty bug that was going around. I’m exhausted this morning but able to keep down food so things are looking up!

Probably not the best choice to start a recipe post with a story about barfing but errr here we are …

I’ve been queen of the mason jar breakfasts lately between overnight oats and chia seed puddings. I wake up at 5AM most mornings and book it out of the apartment to teach so I’m LOVING breakfasts I can prepare the night before and grab the next day.

You can top this cinnamon raisin overnight oats recipe with whatever fresh fruit you want (or none at all). If I don’t do strawberries, I’ll typically go for blueberries. But get creative!

  1. I love overnight oats, especially in the warmer weather. I use a basic recipe and add ingredients depending on what I have on hand. Cinnamon and raisin is my “go to”.

  2. I had overnight oats this am! I used 1/3 cup GF rolled oats, 1/3 cup or maybe a bit more of unsweetened almond milk, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 2tbls of powdered peanut butter, 1/2 tbls of maple syrup. Yum and I am really comfortably full! Your recipe sounds great too.

  3. I’m really into easy meal prepping and this is definitely an overnight oats recipe I feel like I could make! I’m often scared off of ones with way too many ingredients but yours is right down my alley! I also just bought 2 lbs of strawberries.. I think it’s a sign!

  4. LOVE overnight oats. I keep it pretty simple and just do oats, almond or coconut milk, cinnamon, flaxseeds, and frozen berries.

  5. I’m so sorry to hear about your unfortunate flight! It’s never fun to feel crappy while flying. I hope you start to feel better soon! As for this recipe, it sounds delicious! I’ve never tried overnight oats and I feel it’s about time that I give it a try:)
