Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats are like eating blueberry muffins by the spoonful! This meal prep friendly blueberry oatmeal recipe is a healthy breakfast for busy mornings and is made with rolled oats, fresh blueberries, and peanut butter (or almond butter!). This vegan recipe is from The Two Spoons Cookbook by Hannah Sunderani.
On a recent podcast episode, I asked Hannah Sunderani of the beautiful vegan blog Two Spoons (and a new mom to adorable Oliver) what her tips were for fellow new moms who were looking to eat more plants. Half expecting her to suggest making salads or embracing “Meatless Mondays,” I was surprised – and also very happy – when she mentioned making a simple breakfast the night before, like overnight oats or chia pudding.
And it makes sense! I used to do the same thing when my kids were younger! Having overnight oats in the refrigerator ready to go when you wake up sets the tone for the day and allows you to take care of yourself so you can take care of everyone else. After all, healthy eating is important for moms and dads, too!
The best part about prepping breakfast the night before is that when you wake up in the morning, it’s done!
I may already have my go-to overnight oats recipes, but I’m always looking for new oatmeal recipes, so I was super excited to try Hannah’s recipe for Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats in her newly released The Two Spoons Cookbook (affiliate link). And I’m here to tell you – it’s such a delicious recipe!
Blueberry Oatmeal Recipe
While I no longer have babies or toddlers in the house, I still make overnight oats all the time, especially in the summer, when I transition from a hot bowl of cream oatmeal or steel-cut oats to something cool and creamy, but still with wholesome oats! I love that it doesn’t take much time to make, and you can customize it with your favorite type of milk, and this time of year, delicious blueberries! It truly is such a versatile recipe and my favorite kind of healthy cooking!
There was a time when overnight oats were called one of those food trends that gripped the food world, much like avocado toast, cake pops, and mini cupcakes, but it has proven itself time and again to be an easy recipe that is here to stay. I know that is certainly the case for me – I love having the convenience of oatmeal cups at the ready, and overnight oats of all varieties have become one of my favorite things.
This is a great recipe when you have extra blueberries on hand, but I also love how this wonderful recipe is a great base for lots of other fruits. Consider mixing it up with berries, bananas, or whatever fruit is in season!
How to Make Blueberry Muffin Overnight Oats
Making healthy blueberry overnight oats couldn’t be simpler!
Mix wholesome old fashioned oats with chia seeds, cinnamon, and sea salt in a small bowl. Whisk in the almond milk, coconut yogurt, and a little maple syrup for extra sweetness with a fork, just to make sure the mixture is smooth and free of clumps. Let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk again.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill the oats in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight. When ready to serve, top the overnight oats with blueberries, peanut butter, and coconut flakes.
I like making a couple of batches ahead of time for a delicious breakfast on the go. Place them in individual serving bowls or cups (jars work well), and top them with the sweet blueberries and the rest of your toppings.
