Ingredients

Scale

Quick Blueberry Sauce

  • 1 cup blueberries, rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoon maple syrup, optional

Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup greek or skyr yogurt, dairy or plant-based
  • 1.25 cups non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats or quick oats (I used quick)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon, optional

For Serving

  • blueberries
  • hemp hearts
  • favorite nut butter
  • granola

Instructions

  1. Make blueberry sauce:  In small saucepan over medium heat add blueberries, lemon juice and maple syrup. Cook down until juices release, about 8 minutes, then begin mashing with the back of a wooden spoon and continue simmering for another 2-3 minutes, until slightly thickened. Remove from heat to cool.
  2. Make overnight oats: Add wet ingredients to a medium bowl – yogurt, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract; stir well until combined.
  3. Add dry ingredients: Stir in oats, chia seeds and pinch of ground cinnamon.
  4. Refrigerate: Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight. You can portion into individual servings or store in larger bowl.
  5. Enjoy: In the morning, taste test for consistency – you can stir in a couple splashes of milk if you’d like it thinner. Enjoy hot or cold with your favorite toppings.

Notes

STORAGE – Overnight oats will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge. The oats will soften and thicken as they sit, so you may have to add a splash or two of milk on days 4-5.
