Blueberry Vanilla Overnight Oats

August 25, 2016

Growing up in New England, my family frequently went blueberry picking. Fresh blueberries, hot from the sun, are delicious. This overnight oatmeal recipe is chock full of blueberries for a refreshing breakfast. While the below recipe is dairy-free, you can always substitute regular yogurt and milk if you wanted. This makes roughly 4 generous portions.

You can also test out the banana nut, chocolate coconut, chocolate peanut butter, or tropical summer versions!

You will need:

  • 2 1/2 c old-fashioned oats
  • 10 oz coconut milk yogurt
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 2 t ground cinnamon
  • 4 T honey
  • 2 1/2 c soy milk
  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • 1 c chopped pecans, toasted

  1. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients, except for the nuts.
  2. Refrigerate overnight.

Banana Nut Overnight Oatmeal

June 10, 2016

20160524 Banana Oats 02

No cook, overnight oatmeal seems to be increasingly popular these days. You mix it together the night before, pop it in your fridge, and end up with an easy breakfast the next morning. It’s fun for two reasons: 1) you can mix up quite a few different flavor combinations and 2) who doesn’t like a cool breakfast in the spring and summer? This recipe makes about 4 portions.

You will need:

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 c slow cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 c milk
  • 4-5 oz vanilla yogurt
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 2 T pure maple syrup
  • 2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 t ground cloves
  • 1/4 c chopped pecans

Then you will…

  1. In a medium bowl, combine everything but the pecans.
  2. Stir well.
  3. Divide into four portions in containers with lids.
  4. Refrigerate overnight.
  5. Stir in the pecans and enjoy! (Note: you could add the pecans the night before, but they will absorb some of the liquid. If you want them to stay crunchy, add them in the morning).
