These Lemon Blueberry Overnight Oats are sweet, spring vibes in a jar. They’re a great, make-ahead healthy breakfast option that will nourish, energize and keep you full.
I’m kind of obsessed with overnight oats (or ONOs as I like to call them). If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram for a while now, you probably already knew that. I’ve been eating them for years (at least 6) and I’m always coming up with new flavour combinations so I don’t get bored.
Overnight oats are especially great if you’re busy in the mornings. Don’t have time to cook breakfast? Make these the night before – or even make multiple at the start of the week – so that you can grab them out of the fridge and go in the mornings. That’s what I always did when working long days at the hospital.
Lemon Blueberry Overnight Oats Ingredients:
To make these Lemon Blueberry Overnight Oats, you’ll need:
Oats, of course.
Greek yogurt, but regular yogurt or non-dairy yogurt will also do.
The milk of your choice. Cow’s milk, soy milk, almond milk, etc. For a nutritional breakdown of various milks & alternatives, click here.
Chia seeds, they help thicken the mixture and create the “oatmeal” consistency without actually cooking the oats.
Lemon zest. This adds the tangy, lemon flavour.
Blueberries. Fresh or frozen. Most months of the year I use frozen as they’re cheaper. They also add a nice purple colour to the oats!
A sweetener of your choice. This is totally optional!
How to Make Overnight Oats:
If you’ve never made them before, you’ll be shocked at how easily this healthy breakfast option comes together.
All you need to do is combine your overnight oats ingredients in a sealable, airtight container (I like to use mason jars). Feel free to mix them in a bowl first and then transfer to a container if this is easier for you.
Mix them up, seal your container or mason jar and place in the fridge overnight! That’s it! In the morning, remove them from the fridge, add toppings (I like to top these ones with extra blueberries and almond butter) if you please, and enjoy!
