What Are Overnight Oats?

Overnight oats are made by combining rolled oats with liquid. Rather than cooking them the conventional way, heating the liquid so it absorbs quickly, they are stored overnight and absorb everything while they are refrigerated. 

This allows you to get a delicious, ready made breakfast with almost zero prep work.

We love making vegan overnight oats, so we often don’t include the greek yogurt. But boy, does it add a delicious creaminess!

Overnight oats with almond milk are a delicious way to get some protein into your morning. Plus, the addition of chia seeds make these a healthy breakfast you’ll be excited to start each day with! 

The Best Oats For Overnight Oats

Plain old fashioned rolled oats are the best option when making overnight oats. We normally purchase Quaker when we make this recipe.

Steel cut oats won’t absorb enough liquid to make blueberry overnight oats enjoyable. Quick oats will absorb too much, resulting in a watery breakfast.

How To Make Overnight Oats

To make homemade overnight oats:

  1. Add ingredients to a mason jar or container with a tight lid.
  2. Shake, ensuring everything is combined. 
  3. Store the overnight oats in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results. 

How Long Do Overnight Oats Last?

Overnight oats will last 5 days days in the fridge, making them a fun meal prep option! 

Any longer, and they will start to become mushy and lose some flavor.
