These overnight blueberry oats are a no brainer. Imagine very basic overnight oats, with a cream cheese greek yogurt ganache and are packed with protein from the protein powder.

The type of protein powder does make a big difference on all my healthy overnight oats recipes. I highly recommend going with something that has extra flavor and you enjoy eating/drinking.

INGREDIENTS FOR THIS BLUEBERRY OVERNIGHT OATS RECIPE

You will need the following ingredients listed below to make this delicious breakfast (the exact measurements, nutrition information and full recipe are in the printablerecipe card below):

  • Gluten-free old-fashioned oats or quick oats – It’s not required to use gluten-free oats for the recipe to work, but you can if you want to lower gluten content. Stay away from using steel-cut oats as they make the oat mixture chewy.
  • Almond Milk – I prefer almond milk as it has a very neutral flavour in these making them almond milk overnight oats, but any non-dairy milk will work here. Cashew milk, coconut milk, oat milk, hemp milk or soy milk can be used and regular cow’s milk will do the job as well if you would prefer to use that.
  • Chia Seeds – They help thicken the overnight oats by absorbing some of the liquid that might be seeping from the almond milk. They also add healthy fats to the recipe!
  • Whey Protein powder –My favourite protein is PEScience protein powder and you can use code BAILEY at checkout for a special deal on all their products! They have really good vegan protein powder and chocolate protein powder too.
  • Blueberries– overnight oats with blueberries just hit different! Fresh fruit is best here, but frozen blueberries will also work.
  • white chocolate chips – you can use a vegan brand for dairy-free.
  • Greek yogurt – thick coconut yogurt would be the best vegan substitution here. Regular yogurt will also work, or blueberry greek yogurt.
  • Lightcream cheese – you can use your favourite brand of vegan cream cheese for these berry overnight oats.
  • Optional add ins– almond butter, pure maple syrup, coconut flakes, lemon zest, a tsp vanilla extract, or even an extra scoop of protein powder. You can add in whatever you like depending on personal preference

HOW TO MAKE THE BERRY CHEESECAKE OVERNIGHT OATS

  1. Add all oat ingredients to a bowl or jar. Stir well and refrigerate while you get the cream cheese ganache ready.
  2. In a small ramekin, add blueberries for the layering. Microwave until very soft.
  3. In a separate small bowl, microwave white chocolate in 30 second intervals. Mix in with cream cheese and greek yogurt. I used a wire whisk to get rid of clumps.
  4. Remove oats from refrigerator and add blueberry compote overtop. Then pour cream cheese ganache, mixing around slightly to get some purple coming through the ganache . Put back in fridge for 4 hours minimum, or overnight to set.
  5. In the morning top with more blueberries if you desire. You now have the perfect blueberry overnight oats recipe to grab-and-go!

ARE OVERNIGHT OATS HEALTHY?

Yes, protein oats offer a wide variety of health benefits. They are rich in fibre and have a high protein content, especially with the added protein powder that is also added.

They also contain a number of vitamins and minerals, some of which include manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. This makes overnight oats healthy for your gut, as well as for overall health and well-being.

The way I see it, overnight oats are a great addition to your breakfast recipe repertoire. Rather than going through a drive-thru for fast food, you have a simple recipe that’s packed with wholesome ingredients to keep you fuelled through the entire day.

CAN I USE QUICK OATS FOR OVERNIGHT OATS

Yes, quick oats are rolled oats are best for protein powder overnight oats. Do not use steel cut oats for any high protein overnight oats recipe.

BENEFITS OF OVERNIGHT OATS VS COOKED

The benefits of overnight oats are different when they are cooked vs when they are soaked. When you soak oats overnight, the process is much slower and longer than actually cooking them.

Soaking them helps the starches break down and will end up reducing the natural phytic acid. This may help your body utilize the oats nutrients more efficiently than if they were cooked.

CAN YOU WARM UP OVERNIGHT OATS

Overnight oats are typically served chilled, however if you prefer your protein oatmeal warm, then you can warm them up.

Either remove the greek yogurt ganache the next morning and heat the oats up in the microwave, or you can warm them over the stove.

Oats with blueberries are absolutely delicious warm or cold!

CAN YOU MAKE OVERNIGHT OATS WITH WATER?

Yes, you can absolutely substitute water for almond milk or plant milks! This breakfast recipe may not end up being as creamy, but it will still work just fine.

WHAT IS THE BEST CONTAINER FOR OVERNIGHT OATS

There are lots of different options for protein overnight oats.

  1. Wide mouth mason jar – this option is very handy when prepping the overnight protein oats.
  2. Tupperware or meal prep containers – this option is great when you are prepping a bunch of protein powder overnight oats ahead of time. During the busy mornings you can just grab your airtight containerand go!
  3. A bowl – this is more so for the stay at home mom who may want to reheat your high protein overnight oats recipe in the morning!
