These creamy blueberry overnight oats are super easy to make ahead, and taste great. A fantastic way to start your day!
Overnight oats save the day on busy weeks! This fantastic dish is made by combining a few ingredients in a container and storing it in a refrigerator overnight. During the night, the oats soak up the liquids and create a chilled, creamy oatmeal or porridge.
You can then grab the container of oats, and eat them cold, or warm them up in a microwave if you prefer. Perfect as a quick and easy breakfast, and you can even eat it on the go.
This recipe makes a simple, but delicious cold oatmeal with blueberries. The berries have a lovely texture which pairs beautifully with the creamy oats.
This breakfast is really filling and nutritious, perfect to give you energy in the morning. It’s also vegetarian and nut free, and can be made vegan and dairy free by using dairy alternatives, and gluten free by using gluten free oats.
I prefer to use rolled oats over quick cook oats, as I find they have a better texture, however you can try both and decide which one you prefer!
Combine all the ingredients in a container which is sealable. Store it in a refrigerator for at least 6 hours, or ideally overnight.
The oats will soak up the liquid, creating a delicious chilled oatmeal.
I like to serve my overnight oats cold, but you can also warm them slightly in a microwave or in a pot on the stove top if you prefer them warm.
I love topping my overnight oats with lots of nutritious goodies! Here are some of my favorite options that I think go really well with blueberry overnight oats:
- Fresh fruit and berries
- Blueberry chia jam, or other jams or compotes
- Seeds, like chia seeds, pumpkin seeds or flaxseed
- Nuts, such as roasted walnuts or pecans
- Nut butters like peanut butter or almond butter
- Chocolate chips
- Dried fruit like oven dried blueberries or raisins
With other berries: You can substitute the blueberries with any other berries that you like, or add extra berries in addition to the blueberries. Raspberries, strawberries and blackberries are excellent options.
Add some flavor: You can completely change the flavor of the oats by adding a little orange zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, maple syrup or cacao powder.
Try different liquids: I like to make my oats with oat milk, but you can use coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk or cow’s milk too. Try different types of milk to find your favorite! You can also use flavored milk, such as chocolate milk if you want.
Blueberry overnight oats can be stored in sealed containers in a refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can easily make multiple servings at the same time, and have made ahead breakfast for the next couple of days.
