Blueberry Overnight Oats

These Blueberry Overnight Oats make the perfect easy breakfast or afternoon snack. They are packed with nutrition thanks to whole grain oats, chia seeds, and Greek yogurt. The addition of fresh blueberries makes them even more delicious!

Healthy and Delicious Blueberry Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are the perfect quick and easy breakfast! They are packed with healthy fats, plenty of fiber, carbohydrates, and protein. They are basically a little miracle breakfast and I love them so much.

The best part? You can make them the night before, grab them in the morning, top with fresh fruit, and start the day with a nutritious breakfast that will keep you feeling nourished and energized until lunch!

What Are Overnight Oats?

Overnight oats are made from combining whole grain oats with a liquid like almond milk and other tasty ingredients like nut butter, yogurt, or fruit. The oats soak overnight in the liquid, soften, and have the perfect creamy texture, similar to oatmeal, and delicious flavor.

Overnight oats are incredibly versatile and the flavor combinations and toppings are endless. These blueberry overnight oats have fresh blueberries folded right for the most delicious flavor.

Blueberry Overnight Oats Ingredients

(full recipe ingredients and instructions are included in the recipe card, below)

Old Fashioned Oats: If you have a gluten allergy or sensitivity be sure to get certified gluten-free oats. For the best results I recommend using whole grain, old fashioned rolled oats and not quick oats or steel cut oats.

Almond Milk: My liquid of choice for these overnight oats is almond milk. You can also use a dairy milk or cashew milk if you prefer.

Greek Yogurt: For extra protein, this recipe includes plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt. If you like things on the sweeter side, feel free to use a sweetened Greek yogurt instead.

Almond Butter: Adds healthy fats and even more creaminess to the oats.

Chia Seeds: For an extra dose of healthy fats and fiber, I like to add chia seeds to these overnight oats.

Sweetener: You can use your choice of maple syrup or honey. Either will work well!

Vanilla Extract: Just a splash of vanilla extract adds even more flavor to the oats.

Blueberries: there are plenty of juicy fresh blueberries in these oats!

How to Make Blueberry Overnight Oats

How to Serve Your Oats

While these blueberry overnight oats are delicious all on their own, topping them with additional fresh fruit or other toppings is never a bad idea. Here are few topping ideas to take your oats to the next level of deliciousness:

  • Strawberries
  • Almond butter
  • Sliced bananas
  • Chia seeds
  • Hemp seeds
  • Shredded or flaked coconut
  • Sliced almonds
  • Blueberry jam

How Long Do Overnight Oats Last?

Overnight oats should last for 3-5 days in an air-tight container in the fridge. While they will still be good to eat after a few days, know that the texture of the oats may change as they soak up more liquid. I like to make a batch to enjoy for two or three days and then make another instead of doubling the recipe and eating off of it all week long.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?

Yes! If all you have are frozen blueberries, feel free to use those instead of fresh. Just add them in while frozen.

Tips, Tricks, and Ways to Customize

  • Don’t love almond butter? You could use cashew butter or any more neutral nut butter instead. You could also use peanut butter but it will change the flavor of the oats.
  • Want your overnight oats to be sweeter? Feel free to add another tablespoon of honey or maple syrup to the recipe or stir more sweetener in at the end.
  • Need to keep the recipe dairy-free? You can use your favorite dairy free Greek yogurt (like coconut milk or almond milk yogurt) in this recipe instead of a dairy yogurt.
