  • Blueberry banana overnight oats: Add in some mashed banana along with the blueberry.
  • Lemon blueberry overnight oats: Add some freshly squeezed lemon juice and a bit of lemon zest to enjoy the amazing combination of citrus and berries.
  • Use mixed berries instead of just blueberries.
  • Add some chia seeds or flax meal for a bit of healthy fats. You may need to add a bit more liquid as they will absorb the plant-milk as well.
  • Add more toppings! Chopped nuts, fresh berries, cacao nibs or vegan chocolate chips, and hemp seed are all possibilities.

Can you serve blueberry oats warm?

They’re meant to be served cold which makes them so flexible to eat at home or take with you. They’re great in warmer weather too! However, if you prefer your oats warm you can certainly heat them in the microwave for 30 – 60 seconds.

How long do overnight oats last?

They will last up to 5 days in the fridge. Just make sure you’ve got them stored in an airtight jar or container. They get thicker the longer they sit but you can easily add more plant-based milk to thin them out.

Can I make a big batch and store them in a large container?

Yes you can! This method is great for families or if you simply don’t have little jars or containers. Just make sure it’s covered well to keep the air out.
