Ingredients

Blueberry Compote

  • 1 pint (473.18 g) fresh blueberries
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Zest of 1/4 Lemon
  • 2 tbsp sugar or maple or another sweetener of choice
  • 1 pinch (1 Pinch) salt
  • 2 tbsp water

Overnight Oats

  • 1 Cup (81 g) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats , Certified gluten-free if needed
  • 2 tsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups (354.88 ml) Warm Non-Dairy Milk Such as almond, oat, soy, light coconut milk
  • Zest of 1/4 Lemon
  • a drop of vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp (14.79 g) sugar or maple syrup or sweetener of choice

Garnishes

  • blueberries or other berries of choice
  • chopped roasted nuts or seeds of choice

Instructions

  • To make the Blueberry Compote,combine all the Blueberry Compote ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Mash the Blueberries, and continue to cook until tender and the mixture thickens a bit.

  • Let the mixture sit and cool.

  • In a separate bowl, combine the Oats, Chia Seeds, Warmed non Dairy Milk, Lemon Zest, Vanilla Extract, and 1 tbsp of sweetener of choice.

  • Mix and chill for 15 minutes. This will help thicken the mixture, so that it’s easier to pour into your overnight jars. (If it hasn’t thickened to preference, add in 1-3 tbsp more oats and a tsp or so more chia seeds and let sit again)

  • Pour your compote into 2 or 3 jars, depending on the size.

  • Distribute your oat mixture into the jars.

  • Top them with Blueberries, or other berries of choice, and some chopped roasted walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, or chia seeds.

  • Chill overnight, and serve!

Notes

These Overnight Oats will keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

  • You can use other grain flakes such as rice flakes or quinoa flakes,  if you cannot find gluten-free oats.
  • The oat mixture can be mixed in a bowl and then transferred to serving bowls or jars, like I did, or directly mixed in a mason jar.
  • Use other berries to make the compote for variation

Ingredients:

  • Oats and chia seeds are mixed with non-dairy milk to form the base. Use certified gluten-free oats if needed or gluten-free muesli of choice to keep this glutenfree.
  • Blueberries – the star of this oatmeal show! If you can’t find fresh blueberries, frozen ones work too. If you are using fresh, remember to set some aside for decoration.
  • I like some fresh lemon zest and vanilla for that muffin flavor but you could add some lemon extract instead of fresh lemon peel.
  • You can use other grain flakes such as rice flakes or quinoa flakes,  if you cannot find gluten-free oats.
  • The oat mixture can be mixed in a bowl and then transferred to serving bowls or jars, like I did, or directly mixed in a mason jar.
  • You can add some sugar to sweeten this up, or maple syrup to taste.

Tips and Variations:

  • Toast some old fashioned oats before soaking. Toasting adds a nice nutty flavor and also improves the oat texture and flavor.
  • I like to top my jars with chopped pecans and blueberries but anything goes.
  • Almond milk, creamy cashew milk, or oat milk are great here but feel free to use any kind of milk such as coconut, soy, or hemp milk!

How to store overnight oats

Store your blueberry overnight oats in an airtight container such as a glass meal-prep container in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days. Make sure to seal or close the container.

Should I eat this warm or cold?

Most people eat their overnight oats cold, straight out of the fridge. Once the blueberry overnight oats soak overnight, the oatmeal will become chewy and delicious and they will be easy to digest. If you want this warm, just heat it up for 40 -60 seconds in the microwave.
