What Are Overnight Oats?

Overnight oats are basically oats mixed with milk (or yogurt) and refrigerated overnight until softened, hence the name. They’re an easy breakfast and are often prepared in mason jars for a quick on-the-go meal. Different ingredients like fruits, nut butters, seeds, etc can be added to change the flavor profile. Sweeteners like sugar, honey, maple syrup, and agave syrup are also used. Overnight oats are usually enjoyed straight from the jar or can be served in a bowl before adding toppings.

Recipe Ingredients

Whether you use fresh or frozen, blueberries are certainly the most important ingredient. Check the recipe card at the bottom of the post for exact amounts.

  • Almond milk – I prefer the unsweetened kind. You can also use coconut milk or cashew milk.
  • Gluten free quick oats – They don’t have to be gluten-free.
  • Blueberries
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup – Raw honey or agave syrup are great too.
  • Vanilla whey protein powder – This is totally optional.


  • Sliced almonds
  • Blueberries
  • Cinnamon

What Oats Are Best For Overnight Oats?

Quick oats and rolled oats are the best types for making any overnight oats recipe. They absorb moisture really well and give the mixture some of its natural creaminess. Quick oats will make a smoother oat-mixture while rolled oats maintain more of their texture, but flavor-wise they’re exactly the same. Pick your favorite!

Tips for Success

Mason jars aren’t completely necessary to make overnight oats. Feel free to apply all of these tips for all of your favorite overnight oats recipes:

  • Use frozen. Frozen blueberries are a great option too if you can’t get a hold of fresh ones. Make sure they’re fully thawed and well drained before adding them in.
  • Shake it. You don’t need to stir if you don’t want to. Once you add all of the ingredients to the jar, close it well, and shake until everything is fully combined.
  • Add more fruit. Using your leftover berries or bananas will add more nutrients to this recipe and give it more flavor.
  • Use containers. Don’t worry if you don’t have mason jars or don’t want to think about them breaking on your way to work. Use plastic airtight containers instead to make these overnight oats.
  • Prep for the week. Make 5 batches of this recipe in separate containers and you’ll have breakfast for the entire week ready in less than 30 minutes.

Serving Suggestions

You can add your favorite toppings to these blueberry overnight oats to make them an extra indulgent treat. Some of my favorite include sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, almond butter, and even shredded coconut. For a bit more sweetness, add a drizzle of maple or agave syrup. Pair the oats with your morning coffee or tea for the perfect breakfast.

The answers to these overnight oats FAQs will help you choose the right type of oats are for this recipe and whether you should eat them hot or cold.

Refrigerate these blueberry overnight oats in mason jars or airtight containers for up to 5 days. Keep them away from strong-smelling foods like onions and chile to avoid the transfer of odors. Enjoy them straight out of the fridge.

  1. Would this be okay heated up in the a.m. in the microwave? I just prefer oatmeal warm instead of cold. Creature of habit.
