If you haven’t started making your own overnight oats you, let me tell you, you really are missing out. There are so many variations you can make that if you don’t like certain mixtures you can just go ahead and make your own.

If you would like some other overnight oats recipe ideas make sure you browse my breakfast section for more.

I love using fruit that is in season so today I decided to make this variation with blueberries. I actually used my hand blender to puree them so that they could mix in with the oats and milk better and give that intense purple color.

My kids where really pleased with this variation, as I also added some unsweetened shredded coconut which they love. You can also add any nuts of your choice, which I didn’t do this time around but I will in the future.

I tend to make really large quantities of overnight oats when it comes making them because we have them for the entire week ahead. We are a family of 4 so this amount will only last us about 5 days max.

You can totally half the amount if you don’t think you will need so much. The recipe will turn out just fine.

Well, I know some of you where waiting for the recipe, so here it is. I hope you like this blueberry coconut overnight oats variation. It is done in a matter of 5 minutes, it is healthy, easy and delicious.

Enjoy!

  2. Looks very tasty. I mix all kinds of stuff into oatmeal: usually apples, bananas, cinnamon and cardamon are my baseline, i’ve also thrown in goji berries, sunflower seeds – but have not yet tried chocolate- looking forward to that! (but have made meusli with cocoa in the warmer months and it was great)
    p.s. i used your valentine’s cookie recipe to make easter cookies last week and they are wonderful – almost taste like shortbread! thank you!

  3. Bubumotherof2,

    I just love this oatmeal. I am going to make other versions soon but the next one that I really want to try is an apple pie version. I am sure bananas, nuts and dry fruits are also awesome with oatmeal.

    I am glad you like the recipe for the cookies :-)

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Nutrition facts: Thank you so much! I am a type 1 diabetic and I have to match my insulin dose to how much carb I am eating, exactly how many grams of carb. So for me the nutrition facts are not judgmental or “policing” but helping me know how to keep myself healthy. While I do calculate carbs on my own, since so much is at stake, it is helpful to know how someone else counted it, double checking is good! Especially if its something I’ve never eaten before and thus have no idea how to count it. Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

  5. this looks so good, omg, i’ve made chocolate peanut butter oatmeal, but man, not like this. this is like DESSERT. gorgeous pictures!

  6. Joselyn,

    I know that for diabetics carbs are very important. I am glad you are able to use them, this is one of the only times where I think having nutrition facts is crucial as diabetics can make their calculations and figure out how many carbohydrate exchanges they are consuming.

    I am glad someone is using them :-)
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. This looks so delicious! I’ve made chocolate oats before, but I need to do it again soon. I’m wondering if oatmeal for dinner would be acceptable, haha.

  8. I’ve never had oatmeal before. It kind of seems like soggy bread to me, but this right here looks like delicious soggy bread. :)

    I’m always interested in the nutritional facts of a recipe, but I never consider not making something because of them. They’re just interesting. Like, “Ooh… this has a lot of protein or fiber. Nice!” but not, “OH NO! CALORIES!” It’s nice of you to provide them for the diabetics. :)

    • Texanerin,

      You need to try this, it is fantastic. It maybe soggy a bit but nevertheless delicious ;-) I do agree with you when it comes to eating, I won’t stop eating it based on the calories. I just wouldn’t eat it all the time or a bunch of it, I would probably even healthfied it anyways :-)

  9. Hi there Ive just recently discovered your blog and I do love it!! For this recipe I do wonder how it can be called super duper healthy when almost half the calories come from fat?

  10. Nancyandnic,

    Fat is not all bad. BAD FATS ARE SATURATED FATS PLUS TRANS FATS (HYDROGENATED FATS). There are good ones such as polysaturated and monosaturated fats. If you look at the nutrition facts there are only 4.4 grams coming from saturated fat and the remaining which are 16.8 grams are good fats so this is not bad, it is good. Plus the grade for the recipe is A-, if all of the fat was coming from the saturated type this would have not gotten an A- grading!!

    People get concentrated on seeing that the fat content is large and then just assume that the recipe maybe bad, but you have to deeply analyze what the fat composition of the recipe may be. If all, or most of all, is coming from saturated fat, then it is bad, which is not the case here.

    If you want to decrease the saturated fat amt here just decrease the amt of chocolate chips to half in the recipe and you will have less saturated fat, 2.2 gr to be exact :-) The carb content will also go down.

    To be exact there are only 40 calories coming from saturated fat.

    I am glad you found my blog. Hope you keep coming back.

  11. Thanks, I never noticed the grading on the label, must pay more attention.

    Of course I’ll be back, I like a lot of your recipes.

  12. This is literally one of the best things I have ever seen. Yum.

  13. I love reading blogs with healthy and exciting recipe. You can see how healthy person makes creative and exciting healthy food. Good job!

  14. How do you make 1 serving? I’m the only one who eats oatmeal here, lol.

    • You can divide the recipe by 4. You really can’t go wrong as this is not a baked recipe :-) You can even divide it by two and save the rest for the next morning. I hope this helps :-)

  15. Hi… Was wondering about the type of oats used here… Can I use regular quick cook oats or should I used rolled oats? Cos the latter does take longer to cook but is way healthier . And another question .. I have flax seed powder in d fridge , is it the same as the meal version U mentioned? Sorry! Not really familiar with these ingredients ! Thanks!
