Say hello to the easiest breakfast ever. My Blueberry Peanut Butter Overnight Oats are like dessert in a jar, and make for the perfect healthy, easy, and delicious breakfast. These oats pack quite the punch, and are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, vegan-friendly, and are incredibly easy to meal prep. Bye bye complicated breakfasts, hello creamy, dreamy, overnight oats.
I am a firm believer that anybody who doesn’t like oatmeal, simply hasn’t had it the right way. Oats are one of the most versatile ingredients, and can really take on any flavor that you give them. Whether you’re prepping them overnight like in this recipe, or baking them for a warm and delicious breakfast, you truly can’t go wrong when it comes to oats. Today, we are loading them up with blueberries and peanut butter for a delicious combination that I am obsessed with. These make for an awesome post-workout snack, or an otherwise easy breakfast on a busy morning.
If you’re someone who has struggled to get into a meal-prepping rhythm, then you’re going to love this recipe, because it’ll teach you just how easy meal prepping can be. Because they are overnight oats, they require you to make them ahead of time and let them sit in the fridge overnight.
I recommend doing this on a Sunday afternoon, and doubling (or even tripling!) the recipe so that you have enough for the entire week. One batch = 2 servings, so tripling this recipe will give you six full days of breakfasts, ready to go. I recommend storing them in individual mason jars too, so that each portion is perfectly-sized and ready to grab-and-go in the morning.
While this recipe is for Blueberry Peanut Butter Overnight Oats (and I HIGHLY recommend keeping the peanut butter), for my nut-free friends, this recipe is super easy to customize to fit your dietary needs. Simply swap out the peanut butter for something like Sunflower Butter, or my favorite substitution: Granola Butter. My friend Ali is the founder of Oat Haus, and their signature Granola Butter is nut-free, made from oats, and tastes like liquid Teddy Grahams. 10/10 would recommend.
This recipe already calls for protein powder, and you can use your favorite plant-based protein! But if you want to kick it up a notch, you can also add in a sprinkle of collagen. Or, try topping your oats with some chopped nuts of your choice! These are two great ways to add in some additional protein without sacrificing the flavor of these delicious oats.
Eight simple ingredients are all you need to make this recipe! Seriously, it’s so easy and simple. Most of these ingredients are pantry staples, too, so there’s a chance that you might already have them on-hand.
These oats should be stored in an air-tight container, in the fridge, for a minimum of six hours until they set and cool. When prepped ahead of time and kept in the fridge, these oats will stay good for up to one week. Yay!
