Ingredient Notes

Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats: I like Bob’s Red Mill- these oats are gluten-free and delicious! You can find them at most grocery stores or online!

Unsweetened Almond Milk: I prefer the unsweetened original, but if you want extra vanilla flavor, try unsweetened vanilla!

Honey: You could also use monk fruit, or maple syrup, whichever you prefer.

Pure Vanilla Extract: This adds a delicious vanilla flavor to the blueberry overnight oats. Make sure to use pure extract so you don’t have the alcohol taste.

Sliced Almonds: I like the taste of sliced almonds toasted, so you can either buy them this way or toast them yourself.

Blueberries: You could use fresh or frozen blueberries. You could also do strawberries or blackberries.

Vanilla Protein Powder: Just one scoop will give you a ton of protein in these overnight oats with protein powder. Choose your favorite brand! You could also do collagen powder.

Recipe Step by Step

  1. In a pint-size (16 oz) mason jar (or another air-tight container that can hold at least 2 cups), combine the oats, almond milk, protein powder, honey, and vanilla extract. Close with the lid and shake to combine. Refrigerate for 8 hours or up to 5 days.
  2. Eat cold, or hot. To heat: remove the metal lid and microwave for 2 minutes. Top with sliced almonds and blueberries, and enjoy!

Expert Tips

Oats: Best with old-fashioned rolled oats, they have the best chew. You could use instant oats, but they will get much softer. 

Milk: I prefer almond milk, but you can use your preferred dairy-free or dairy milk. Same quantity.

Sweetener: I love honey. You can also use maple syrup, agave nectar, coconut sugar, or regular sugar. About 1 teaspoon, or more to taste.

Freezing: You can freeze these blueberry overnight oats with protein powder for at least 6 months, and if you’re using wide-mouth pint mason jars you can freeze directly in the jars. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
