A friend of mine told me about how she has been enjoying what she called refrigerator oats that they were the best thing ever. Of course when a friend of mine tells me something is amazing I tend to believe them and try them myself.
She was right! Not only were overnight oats amazing and made the morning so much easier they were super easy to prep too! This is the overnight oats recipe that got my whole family hooked on this no cook breakfast recipe!
We are big fans of blueberries in our house, we always have blueberries in the house and this was the perfect way to use up some of the ones I had bought, in normal me fashion I over bought them because I saw them on sale. Normally I freeze blueberries when I over buy, this time I wanted to make as many blueberry recipes as I could think of, including this nocook blueberry oatmeal.

What are overnight oats?
If you have never had overnight oats you are in for a treat! Overnight oats are a quick and easy breakfast that is made by soaking rolled oats over night in a liquid. Depending on the recipe some overnight oats recipes use yogurt, others use milk and I have seen some that use water.
Personally we like using yogurt and milk when making overnight oats. I find that they oats keep their texture better and I don’t end up with some slimy smushy something in my jar in the morning.
I also like using yogurt because it gives more nutritional value to the oats and it gives amazing flavor too!
Which Oats are best for overnight oats?
The best oats to use are Old-Fashioned rolled oats. You can use quick oats but they will end up being softer then if you used rolled oats. I do not suggest using steel cut oats, they need more liquid then the others and a longer time in the fridge to get the softness you want your oats to have.
How Long do Overnight Oats last?
I have found that overnight oats are good for 2-3 days after I have made them. Any longer then that and they get a different texture that I am not a fan of.
How to heat overnight oats
Personally I like to eat my overnight oats right out of the fridge, cold. My kids prefer to heat theirs up. If you are wanting to heat up overnight oats just heat them in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute. If you do not have a lot of extra room in your container put the overnight oats into a different container to heat up because they will boil a little bit when you are cooking them in the microwave.
