Almond Blueberry Overnight Oats
A few years ago, overnight oats started taking over Pinterest – and I kind of laughed at it, because I thought it’s ridiculous to make such a huge deal out of something so simple. Fast forward a few years, I now have a bunch of little kids at home, and make ahead breakfasts have become my life savers!There’s nothing better than a simple make ahead breakfast on busy school mornings - my Almond Blueberry Overnight Oats are an easy, healthy breakfast you can prep the night before. It will turn into a pot of creamy and delicious oats - my kids love this one!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 Servings
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup milk of choice
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of sea salt
- 3/4 cup blueberries plus extra for topping
- 2 tablespoons chopped almonds OR almond butter for young kids
Stir all ingredients together very well.
Divide between jars and cover.
Refrigerate overnight, then serve cold topped with extra fruit.
This makes 2 large portions or 4 smaller portions. It’s obviously not crucial to pack the oats into individual jars. You can just make a large bowl and everybody helps themselves.
For a large family, increase the recipe amounts (the recipe card below calculates it for you – just adjust the serving size according to your needs!) and prep the oats in a large container – everyone can serve themselves in the morning and you save time by skipping stirring everything together in individual jars
We like a mix of quick oats and old fashioned oats for best creaminess and texture – use all quick oats if you don’t have time for an overnight soak
You can make this without if you like, just add 2 tablespoons more oats and a little less milk. You can also use flaxseed instead, but they have a stronger taste.
Make these allergy friendly by using your favorite dairy-free yogurt and milk. Always use certified gluten free ingredients if necessary!
I like my overnight oats very creamy. If they seem too wet to you in the morning, you can add some extra chia and wait for a few minutes. I wouldn’t recommend adding more chia than states in the recipe if giving this to young children though.
If the oats seem too dry/sticky, just add a bit of milk or yogurt and they should be fine.
