  • 1 cup white sugar, divided

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced

  • 3 cups water

  • 2 cups almond milk

  • 2 ½ cups old-fashioned oats

  • 1 ½ cups bananas, mashed

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ cup pecans, chopped


  1. Sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar over sliced strawberries in a bowl. Let rest until juices have been released, 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. Boil water and almond milk together in a large pot. Add oats and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in strawberries, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, bananas, cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt, and nutmeg and remove from heat. Stir in pecans.

  3. Grease 18 muffin cups and fill each to the top with oat mixture, mounding a bit. Freeze 8 hours to overnight. Remove oatmeal from muffin cups and place in freezer bags or a freezer-safe container.

  4. Prepare 1 frozen oatmeal cup by placing in a microwave-safe bowl and heating in a microwave oven for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For thinner oatmeal, add milk. You can use any animal- or plant-based milk you like. You can slice the bananas instead of mashing, too.
