Table of Contents
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.
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 or chocolate protein powder if you prefer.
Recipe Step by Step
- In a pint-size (16 oz) mason jar (or another air-tight container), 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.
- Eat cold, or warm it up. To heat: remove the metal lid and microwave for 2 minutes. Top with sliced almonds and blueberries, and enjoy.
Oats: These protein overnight oats are 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 using honey in this protein overnight oats recipe. 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. If you’re using wide-mouth pint mason jars you can freeze directly in the jars. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
Unfortunately, no. Oats are not keto-friendly. If you’re taking a break from keto, this is an excellent low-calorie, healthy breakfast. Packed with protein to keep you fuller longer.
Yes! You can double or triple this recipe if you need to. You can also use it as meal prep for the week or breakfast for the whole family.
You can use any kind of fresh berries, peanut butter, bananas, shredded coconut, seeds, nut butter, dark chocolate chips, etc.
There are 18.9 grams of protein. A super easy way to add protein to your breakfast rotation.

That is pretty high in calories though almost 500 just for breakfast. Just wouldn’t make it an every day thing
This so yummy! It is like dessert in a jar… For breakfast!
So glad you liked it Hannah! I had a jar of it myself this morning. It’s my breakfast every day!
I still haven’t tried the whole overnight oatmeal thing and I’m not sure why – my kids all love oatmeal and I’m sure they’d like it! Need to try this!
I’m super late to the overnight oatmeal train! No clue why though, because you’ve got me sold. Easy, healthy, plus minimal clean up! This flavor combination sounds incredible!
What a yummy and healthy breakfast! Looks great!
Aaw I love that special time in the morning, so so precious!:) Overnight oats are the best! Love the the vanilla and almond combo!
Overnight oats are the best and I love these flavors!
Ok, these pictures are super pretty!! And that oatmeal sounds delish! I love any kind of easy breakfast. I’ve made overnight oats in the past, but not in forever! Need to get back on that bandwagon!
I have never tried overnight oatmeal and I don’t know why! I definitely need to. If it weren’t for Kyle making me breakfast every morning, I’d probably skip it. And I totally know what you mean about getting used to fresh eggs. I get mine from a farm and when they were closed for Christmas and New Year’s I had to buy store bought – totally could tell a difference and I will never do that again!
Sounds like a delicious and healthy breakfast! I love make ahead breakfasts like this.
Can you believe I’ve never had overnight oats?! I am just getting into the baked oatmeal so maybe overnight oats are next! These look so creamy and I love how easy they are!
This looks just perfect, Natalie! Awww you’re taking me down memory lane…mornings were my favorite time of the day as well. And let’s just never ever discuss 5-9pm, OK? ;)
Mmm…vanilla and blueberry…that sounds like a delicious combo! Those quick on-the-go breakfasts are just the best, aren’t they??
Oh yum! I am really bad about skipping breakfast too. On days when Clayton is working I get up and get right to work, that is not a very good habit! I have got to make this, I think it will save my mornings too!
I’m obsessed too! It’s good with millet flakes and even buckwheat too (though you have to get used to buckwheat!). Your mornings with the blonde baby sound amazing :)
Aren’t overnight oats the best? I like oatmeal, but I absolutely LOVE overnight oats! This vanilla almond version sounds SO good, Natalie! Love the blueberries in here, too!
I SO need to hop onboard the overnight oatmeal train! I still have yet to try them! I’m definitely going to have to start with this gorgeous version since I’m totally obsessed with all berries right now! I love how few ingredients it calls for!
