Breakfast for myself is one of the most difficult meals of the day. I have never been much of a breakfast eater but when I do it is usually a bowl of cold cereal, or a cup of coffee. And I like oatmeal, but typically covered in butter and brown sugar. So these overnight blueberry oats is something I can get on board with.
I was raised in a house of breakfast eaters. My dad would make big elaborate breakfasts on the weekends full of pancakes or waffles, french toast, hash browns, eggs and bacon. The rest of the week my breakfast might consist of a nutrigrain bar. It is just one of those things that I never made time for.
While I feel like I go in spurts of wanting breakfast I have done a lot better than in the past mainly because I have chosen to be better about meal planning and making it happen. And making breakfasts like these Overnight Blueberry Oats is definitely a way to keep me on track!
It really is as simple as it sounds.
1/4 cup dry steel cut oats
1/4 cup almond milk
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1 cup blueberries
- Mix everything together and cover
- Cover and refrigerate overnight
- stir and eat (heat for 1 minute if you’d rather eat them warm- I think they are delicious either way!)
One thing I love about these overnight blueberry oats is that you can replace those blueberries with one cup of strawberries, or peaches or many other fruits to change it up for everyday of the week!

I don’t know about others, but I have a hard time eating greek yogurt because of the texture. I don’t like the thickness of it and I never eat it unless it is in a recipe. Check out a few more recipes that include Greek Yogurt like this Buffalo Chicken Bowl, Berry Parfait, Ranch Dressing, Slow Cooked Creamy Mexican Chicken, Chicken and Spinach Bake.
