What are the Benefits of Blueberry Overnight Oats?

Just like our Blueberry Muffin Smoothie Pack, we are obsessed with this easy and healthy make-ahead breakfast idea. Here’s why:

Make-Ahead: You can whip up several of these on the weekend and have breakfast ready to go for the week. They just take minutes to put together.

No Cooking Involved: The oats softened in the liquid as it sits in the refrigerator, which means no cooking is needed. Doesn’t get much easier.

Super Healthy: Breakfast doesn’t get much healthier than this! The combo of fresh or frozen blueberries, oats, milk, and walnuts provide fiber, protein, antioxidants, and valuable minerals. Read more about why walnuts are so good for you here. We use all-natural sweetener in our recipe, like pure maple syrup or honey.

Stir in chopped walnuts to provide even more variety of texture and some added protein. It’s up to you.

How to Make Blueberry Overnight Oats

In just four simple steps, you can throw together your overnight oats and be ready for the week. Here’s how:

How to assemble overnight oats
  1.  Build the Base: In a clean 10 ounce or 12-ounce mason jar, pour in your favorite (unsweetened) milk. Add old-fashioned or rolled oats and your all-natural sweetener of choice (pure maple syrup or honey). 
  2. Add Fruit: Whether it’s fresh or frozen berries (like this recipe), chopped peaches or tropical fruit, or your favorite dried fruit, this ingredient adds more sweetness, flavor, and nutrition. We do recommend adding banana slices fresh rather than ahead of time, but they can work if you don’t mind mushy bananas. 🙂 
  3. Add Toppings: Pour in the remaining add-ins, like walnuts, cinnamon, and vanilla for this version.
  4. Shake and Refrigerate: Seal and shake. Set in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.

Do I Eat Blueberry Overnight Oats Warm or Cold?

We hear this question a lot. The best way to serve Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats is…whatever you like best! Eating them cold or warm works.

Serve Overnight Oats Cold: Shake the jar. Stir in a little extra milk if it’s too thick and more sweetener if you’d like. Grab a spoon and eat your oats cold. This is the perfect solution for those mornings when you’re on the run!

Serve Overnight Oats Warm: This is our preferred way to serve overnight oats. Shake the jar and then remove the lid. Warm the oats in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Stir. Add more milk or sweetener as needed. Warm up even more, if desired.

    Would this recipe work with steel cut oats? I’m thinking not, lol, but wanted to check if you’d had any success with those. Thanks!

      I’ve used bobs red mill muesli. It’s great with whole rolled oats.

      We haven’t tested steel cut oats, sorry!
