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!

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.
