Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats Ingredients

  • OATS: Plain old-fashioned rolled oats and not quick or instant oats. Quaker also carries an overnight oats version as well that is suitable for making the recipe.
  • MILK: Almond milk, cashew milk, half & half, heavy cream, coconut milk, oat milk or cow’s milk.
  • SWEETENER: Overnight oats are sweet enough as is, however maple syrup is my favorite choice of sweetener, especially for a dessert like breakfast. Other sweeteners, such as coconut sugar, brown sugar, and honey work as well.
  • TOPPINGS: Fresh fruit and nuts like blueberries and walnuts or pecans add delicious texture. Add the toppings in the next morning.

OVERNIGHT OATS TIPS AND QUESTIONS

Do I serve overnight oats cold or warm? They are best served chilled from the refrigerator and make a tasty breakfast option during summer months. If you prefer it warm, simply heat on the stovetop or in the microwave.

Can I make this with gluten-free oats? Yes.

What is the consistency of overnight oats? The oats have a thick and creamy, pudding like consistency.

Can I use frozen fruit? Yes. Most frozen fruit will defrost perfectly in the refrigerator. However, for larger fruits, be sure to slice before refrigerating.
