It took me a while to hop on the “overnight oats” train. I was set in my ways. I needed a piping hot bowl of oatmeal that never failed to burn the top of my mouth. Top it with freshly chopped fruit, a handful of granola and a drizzle of honey and I was sold.
Then, one day, when I started a full time job, I began to get tired of making breakfast every morning. So I figured – what the heck. I’m trying it out. Breaking the routine. I needed to have something quick and easy to make for me + Benjamin.
And we haven’t gone back since.
Guys, this overnight oats recipe reaches a WHOLE NEW LEVEL of creaminess. The way the oats absorb the almond milk matched with the pop of the blueberries and the honey you drizzle in – the flavors come together in a harmonious way that makes my mouth water just typing it. Seriously. It’s that good.
Find the recipe below! It’s delicious, nutritious, and my favorite two things: quick and easy. And don’t forget to add on some extra blueberries, some crunchy granola and chia seeds for extra nutrients!
Oh, and one of the best things? Scrambling around at 6 AM in the morning, trying to get your life together and get to work and you open up the fridge and *cue the angels choir* you already have breakfast MADE! Enjoy!
Creamy Blueberry Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup Quick Oats
- 3/4-1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (Add 3/4 cup if you like it thicker, 1 cup if you're like me and want it thinner.)
- 1 tbsp Raw Honey
- 1/2 Mashed Banana
- 1/2 cup Blueberries
Add oats to a mason jar.
On a cutting board, mash the banana and add it to the jar on top of the oats.
Add in the blueberries.
Drizzle honey over top. Stir it all together.
Add in almond milk.
Place the lid on the jar tightly and shake that baby up!
Place in refrigerator for 6-8 hours to achieve full creamy potential.
Plop it in a bowl, eat it straight from the jar, drizzle more honey, add more granola. Serve it hot or cold. (I think it's extra creamy when it's cold!) The choice is yours.
