Overnight oatmeal is a quick and healthy breakfast for busy mornings. Oatmeal is one of the undisputed “Super Foods” and packs a powerful punch with healthy carbohydrates, cholesterol lowering soluble fiber, and hunger fighting compounds. This recipe is delicious right from the fridge or heated up in the microwave.
I love that you can prep several containers per person on Sunday and it stays good for 3-4 days. Make the base and season in the morning or add your favorite dried fruit at night.
- ¼ cup quick cook oats
- ½ cup whole or skim milk (soy or almond)
- 2 tsp. brown sugar
Blueberry Vanilla Mix-in
- 2 Tbsp. Blueberries
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Mix ingredients in a small jar.
- Put in fridge overnight to allow oats to soak up the milk and soften.
- Add blueberries and vanilla in the morning.
- Stir & serve (hot or cold, depending on your preference)
You can do about anything with this recipe. Some of our other variations are:

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
