Blueberry Overnight Oats Recipe
This blueberry oatmeal bowl is mind blowing delicious! It’s made with oats, blueberries, mashed bananas and your milk of choice (I tried with coconut milk and with cow milk and both were really good). I then added the toppings but it’s just as good without them.

A daily bowl could protect against obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and are high in potassium and vitamin C making them one of the best superfoods to include in your diet. Read more about superfoods.
How much blueberries should you eat a day?
The deeper the color of blueberries, the more rich they are in antioxidants and other medicinal values.
Are overnight oats healthy?
I am not a morning person and I prefer to grab something easy in the morning to eat while having my coffee. But more often than not I am having graham crackers or breakfast biscuits which is NOT ideal nor does it fill me up.
Having a make-ahead breakfast ready to go creates an easy option for eating healthy! Overnight oats are both delicious and nutritious, and loaded with nutrients like fiber, protein, magnesium, potassium, and omega 3 fatty acids. Blueberry overnight oats makes it easy to have a quick healthy breakfast ready to eat without any fuss.
Do you eat overnight oats cold?
You can! There really is no wrong way to eat overnight oats. I usually take the jar out in the morning when I wake up and let them sit on the counter for an hour or so. Because of my thyroid medicine I take, I have to wait to eat. So by the time I eat my overnight oatmeal, it’s pretty much room temperature. You can also throw it in the microwave for a minute.
What kind of oats do you use for overnight oats?
Old-fashioned oats are the best kind to use because they soak up the liquid overnight and end up with a creamy consistency.
This recipe is very versatile and you can make it according to your liking, using whichever milk you prefer.
I stored it overnight and it makes a delicious make ahead breakfast option.
