Overnight Blueberry Almond Oats Recipe

Did you know July is National Blueberry Month? I love blueberries so I think we need to celebrate. Get out your party hats and confetti, today is all about blueberries! I am sharing a recipe for Overnight Blueberry Almond Oats and 25 amazing blueberry recipes from our blog and around the web. Happy National Blueberry Month!

Overnight Blueberry Almond Oats Recipe on

First, let’s talk about the Overnight Blueberry Almond Oats. I love making overnight oats because they are easy to throw together before bedtime and when you wake up, breakfast is ready to go! I like to make my overnight oats in a jar so there is only one dish to wash in the morning. I mix oats, almond milk, Chobani plain Greek yogurt, cinnamon, and blueberries together. I put the jar in the fridge and go to bed!

In the morning, I take the jar out of the fridge and top the oats off with almonds, extra blueberries, and cinnamon. I dig right in, there is no need to cook the oats. You may think cold oats sound odd, but I promise they are tasty, especially during the hot summer months. The oats are creamy and bursting with blueberry flavor. And I love the crunch the almonds add.

I love making Overnight Blueberry Almond Oats for breakfast. It is an easy and healthy way to start the day!

    This looks SO yummy and seriously perfect when you know you’ll be having a busy morning. I’m on my way out to the store now so I’m sad that Café Zupas mobile site isn’t working correctly and I can only pull up their menu.

      Sorry their mobile site isn’t pulling it up. I hope you can look on the regular site…and I will ask them about their mobile site. Thanks for your patience.

    With my love for oatmeal, I’m amazed I still haven’t made overnight oats! I love that you put yogurt in your recipe for a nice creamy tang. Nutritious breakfast idea and gorgeous in a mason jar! Have a fun weekend!

  24. Erica — July 20, 2012 @ 1:03 pm

    Can you give us the proportions you use?

  30. Riley — July 20, 2012 @ 6:31 pm

    I’ll do anything to avoid waking up any earlier than needed in the morning! Yum!

  31. Kari@Loaves and Dishes — July 20, 2012 @ 7:07 pm

    I have a friend ( no really it’s not me) who doesn’t really cook. She makes a giant batch of oatmeal for the week for her family( need I say more?). She really is a sweet thing and I love her. I’m emailing her this recipe. Her family thanks you.

  32. Kari@Loaves and Dishes — July 20, 2012 @ 7:22 pm

    Couldn’t email the recipe, so I posted on FB instead, sure my other friends will also enjoy the recipe.

  33. Julie @ Table for Two — July 20, 2012 @ 9:08 pm

    it’s blueberry month?! that’s awesome!! thanks for telling me this because I totally have blueberry pancakes in my lineup! these overnight oats look like the ultimate and PERFECT breakfast that i’d love to have!

  34. Carolyn — July 20, 2012 @ 10:16 pm

    I just discovered overnight oats this summer and they’ve quickly become my favourite – I’ve been eating hot oats forever, so this is a fantastic change. I’ve found that if I add frozen fruit to the mixture, they’re perfectly thawed by morning and their jucies make to oats even sweeter.

  35. Lynna H. — July 21, 2012 @ 3:02 am

    Wow, this is indeed very useful! I must make these!

  36. i love overnight oats! I havent had it in ages though! I will make this recipe tomorrow morning…. I am sick of my same old same old breakfast! haha! my family is from NJ and we have a friend who gets blueberries by the cases for us. we have so much we dont even know what to do with it! we have made pies and bread and just ate them whole and on yogurts, etc. here is yet another way to eat blueberries :) thanks!

  37. Denise@DeederTheBeader — July 21, 2012 @ 9:14 am

    Wow, what a coincidence! I am sitting here enjoying my own overnight oats with fresh picked blueberries and saw your post. They are a delicious way to start the day and great for a cold breakfast during the summer. I often have blueberry pie for my July birthday but look forward to checking out the other recipes. Thanks!

  38. Amanda — July 21, 2012 @ 1:37 pm
