Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats

Hey friends! I hope the school year is off to a great start for you and your families. Are you like me and see the start of a new school year as an opportunity to set new goals? I’ve spent the last few weeks really focusing on what I’d like to accomplish, such as eating healthier, losing weight, and spending more time running. These aren’t necessarily new goals, but rather lifestyle changes that I want to get back to. One of my main lifestyle goals when it comes to nutrition is making sure to eat a healthy breakfast. I often wake up rushing to get the kids ready for school, then lose sight of my plan and reach for a quick muffin or donut in the Starbucks line. I know how important it is to eat a nutritional breakfast and I really want to make it a priority. To breakfast easier I’ve started preparing overnight oats in mason jars.

How to make overnight oats

If you’ve never tried overnight oats it’s basically uncooked oatmeal mixed with milk, yogurt, and your favorite toppings and sweetener. The oats absorb the milk and yogurt overnight, making them soft and ready to eat in the morning. You don’t need to cook them, simply grab and go. I could eat oatmeal everyday so it’s nice to change things up with a cold version. The beauty of this simple recipe is that you can mix in any kind of topping you prefer. Same goes for the sweetener, or none at all. I usually prepare my oatmeal with a tiny amount of brown sugar so that’s usually what I prefer in my overnight oats as well. You can use honey or agave instead if you’d like. Today I’m sharing one my recent favorites – a banana blueberry overnight oats recipe in a jar.

How long does overnight oats last in the fridge?

Here’s the even better part about overnight oats, you can keep them in the fridge for up to 5-6 days! That means you can easily prep breakfast for the whole week on Sunday – you know that I love a healthy breakfast recipe that takes zero time or thought!

Can you heat overnight oats?

You can heat overnight oats in the microwave for 30-90 seconds if you’d like but it’s completely unnecessary.

Enjoy!
