What are overnight oats?

If you haven’t had overnight oatmeal, it is a method of making oatmeal a bit differently than usual. Instead of cooking oats on your stovetop or microwave and eating them warm, overnight oats are cooked by being soaked with ingredients in the fridge overnight. By having the oats soak in the fridge, they will absorb the liquid and be ready to eat without being cooked in the typical way.

To make this recipe, it’s as simple as adding all of the ingredients to a jar, shaking well, and letting it sit in the fridge overnight. This recipe can be made the night before or even on the weekend so it’s a great meal prep option!

This healthy breakfast option offers a high amount of protein and delicious flavors that will give you so much energy. Start your day with these awesome Blueberry Overnight Oats!

What ingredients do I need?

  • Oats – Oatmeal is one my breakfast staples because it’s a slow-digesting carbohydrate that will steadily provide energy. For this recipe, the oats are “cooked” by being mixed with other ingredients and sitting in the fridge overnight. I would suggest quick oats.
  • Chia seeds – A scoop of chia seeds doesn’t add flavor, but several nutrients. They can also help thicken up the oatmeal for a creamy texture.
  • Almond milk – The almond milk is going to help “cook” the oats and serve as the liquid that the oats will absorb.
  • Plain greek yogurt – Greek yogurt is going to make the oats extra creamy. It is also an awesome source of protein!
  • Vanilla - A little bit of vanilla will add some extra sweetness to the oats.
  • Blueberries - These berries are packed with antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins. Along with the many health benefits, blueberries add sweetness and amazing flavor to the oatmeal.
  • Optional Ingredients: Vanilla protein powder, peanut butter butter, syrup, honey, stevia, slivered almonds, coconut, etc.

What substitutions can I make?

  • Oats – Because this recipe is for overnight oats, you definitely need some sort of oats. I use quick oats but you could use gluten-free, flavored, or whatever kind you like best.
  • Chia seeds – This is an optional ingredient and the recipe will still turn out great if you don’t add these seeds.
  • Plain greek yogurt – Any kind of yogurt will work for this recipe. You can use greek or low-fat, and vanilla or plain. A dairy-free option would also work.
  • Vanilla - A little bit of vanilla will add some flavor, but it's not a necessary ingredient.
  • Blueberries - The blueberries are the most important ingredient for this recipe! Frozen or fresh berries will work great. You can swap blueberries for any kind of berries.

These are delicious! If you're like me and don't like oatmeal, don't skip this recipe! It reminds me more of a parfait than oatmeal. This is a great option to pack for work and it keeps me full all morning. It's also so easy to just put everything in a jar and shake - genius!

10/10! This is the first recipe for overnight oats that I’ve tried that includes Greek yogurt that actually tastes good. Creamy and just the right amount of sweet. Love the chia seeds as a health- boosting addition!
