This Vegan Overnight Blueberry Oatmeal will quickly become your go-to overnight oats recipe. It packs clean, simple ingredients and doesn’t skimp on creamy taste!

6 ingredient vegan blueberry overnight oat recipe with gluten free oatmeal

If you’ve never heard of overnight oats before, I’m going to give you a quick run down! They’re quick, easy, and the PERFECT grab and go breakfast for all you busy bee’s out there! Instead of cooking your oats on the stovetop, you simply add oats and liquid with mix-ins to a mason jar or bowl and store it in the fridge overnight.

This version is as simple as it gets: 6 ingredients5 minutes prep time, no fancy methods, and simple ingredients.

The texture is more dense and creamy than your average stovetop oats, and they’re served cold instead of hot, but I find them so much better! Typically I use a 1:1 ratio of oats to liquid (nut milk), however in this recipe I have added chia seeds. Chia seeds absorb liquid like a sponge, so I like to add in a little bit of coconut milk to make sure it stays really creamy!

The best part about these oats is the variety! Get creative with it! Switch up the almond milk for cashew milk. Add in hemp hearts or flaxseed. Instead of blueberries use strawberries. If you want to get really fancy, make some chia jam, add in some peanut butter, and you’ve got yourself a peanut butter and jam overnight oat recipe! The possibilities are endless!

Overnight Oat Staples

Chia Seeds – chia seeds are not only a great source of antioxidants, fiber, and omega-3’s, but they help thicken your overnight oats and make them extremely creamy and satisfying!

Vanilla extract – you can’t go wrong with vanilla. I use vanilla almost all of my recipes, it’s such a simple thing to add that adds tons of great flavour!

Maple syrup – who needs table sugar when you have natural sweeteners? Maple syrup or honey are always my go-to’s!

I love making different recipe creations and trying new things, but it’s also very important to me to get in all my vitamins and minerals to maintain good health! Multivitamins are a big part of my supplement routine. The multivitamin I have been loving lately is Jamieson 100% Complete Multivitamin Adults.

I have been using Jamieson products for about 6 months now and I absolutely love them! Jamieson products have a worldwide reputation for purity and potency. Their industry-leading commitment to quality, through their 360 Pure promise, guarantees that their products are of the highest quality available. Their “Essentials” program includes the Jamieson 100% Complete Multivitamin Adults, Jamieson Omega-3 No Fishy Aftertaste, Jamieson Vitamin D3, and Jamieson Probiotics, and this combination is the foundation for good health!

I Love The Jamieson 100% Complete Multivitamin Adults Because:

  1. It has 100% or more of your daily vitamin needs, as recommended by Health Canada
  2. Naturally energizing and helps to support the immune system
  3. Formulated for adults

How Long Do Overnight Oats Last?

Overnight oats will last up to 3-4 days, sometimes longer. 

Can You Warm Overnight Oats?

Yes, they can be eaten hot or cold. To heat, transfer to a saucepan and heat over medium heat until warm, or microwave for 45-60 seconds.

Can You Use Quick Oats Or Steel Cut Oats?

Quick oats will yield a softer oatmeal. I would not recommend using steel cut oats as you will need to adjust the amount on liquid and they will be harder and difficult to digest

Are Oats Naturally Gluten Free?

No they are not. If you want to keep this recipe gluten free they do require gluten free oats. If you aren’t celiac or gluten intolerant you do not need to use gluten free oats.

Note: You can make this recipe with regular quick oats, they do not have to be gluten-free. And if you’re not into plant-based milk you can use regular milk instead for the same results! You can also substitute the maple syrup for honey (as long as you’re not vegan) or for sweetener of choice.
