The ingredients you will need for this recipe
There are just five ingredients needed to make this simple and easy recipe.
- Rolled Oats: I love the texture that the rolled (or old-fashioned) oats adds to this breakfast. It will work perfectly with smaller steel cut oat flakes too though.
- Almond Milk: I like making this recipe with almond milk, but any milk alternative can be used so use whichever you prefer best.
- Vanilla Essence: Adds a delicious vanilla flavor so that your breakfast pretty much tastes like dessert. Winning!
- Maple Syrup/Honey: Feel free to adjust how much sweetness you add depending on your sweet tooth. Other sweetener alternatives will work too such as xylitol.
- Blueberries: The riper the better! The blueberries add a delicious burst of flavor and nutrients to this overnight oats recipe. Frozen berries can also be used.
How To Make Creamy Overnight Oats
I love a simple breakfast recipe - and this one couldn't get any easier. Making this recipe only requires 5 minutes of your time.
- To make these creamy overnight oats, mix the ingredients together in a bowl or in a jar (if you are going to use small jars, I like to mix everything together in a mixing bowl then divide the oats between several jars. Or, if you prefer you can make this directly in a large jar).
- This oat mixture is then placed in the fridge overnight. It is best to keep the oat mixture covered while it is in the fridge.
- Once you are ready to eat your overnight oats, take it out of the fridge and top with extra blueberries and some extra milk if you like.
How to store overnight oats with blueberries:
This recipe is perfect for meal prep. Overnight oats can easily be kept for up to 5 days in a fridge. Just keep the mixture covered in the fridge and add the toppings fresh each time you eat it. Remember that with each day the oats will become softer, and they will also become thicker. I personally like to enjoy my overnight within 2 days of making them.
Are overnight oats healthy?
Yes, they are! Oats are whole-grain and gluten-free which is great for breakfast. They are loaded with fibre so they will keep you feeling full and energised. The addition of blueberries in this recipe also adds some extra nutrients.
