Vanilla Blueberry Overnight Oats; an easy and healthy breakfast with a sweet vanilla delicious taste. Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Naturally Sweetened.
There is something about blueberries that just makes my heart happy… and I think it is because of my grandma. She has always loved her blueberries. And when I say love I mean LOVE. She puts blueberries in everything; her delicious pancakes, her healthy bran muffins, her smoothies.. literally everything. And I don’t blame her! Blueberries are so amazing on so many different levels.
Blueberries are just a perfect addition to any breakfast. Why? They are packed with energy boasting antioxidants that give you that power you need to start your day off on the right foot. Coffee what?!
I bought some fresh blueberries yesterday for this recipe. Usually I buy a big bag of frozen fruit from Costco and keep it in my freezer and pull out handfuls for my recipes as I need them. It is sometimes just easier to do it that way because I always forget what I have in my fridge and things tend to go bad quick.
But I saw these blueberries and just couldn’t resist… plus they were on sale so I REALLY needed them. Berries are just really getting me in the mood for spring! Even if we are currently in the middle of an ice storm right now.
These overnight oats are also packed with healthy additives to keep you feeling fuller longer.
- Hearty quick oats
- chia seeds
- hemp seeds
- vanilla protein powder
Basically all my favourite things rolled up into one bowl of goodness.. toped with fresh mouth watering blueberries.
I used my favourite vanilla protein powder in this recipe (like I do always) because it keeps me feeling full longer when I have a great source of protein in my breakfast. Sometimes my days get super busy and I end up having a late lunch. Having some protein in my breakfast keeps my energy levels up until I have time to eat again.
Obviously I could sit here and tell you why you need these Vanilla Blueberry Overnight Oats in your life, but you really just need to try them! Make some tonight and leave them in your fridge overnight and inhale them in the morning! No baking required. Easy and quick breakfast for your stressful-and-im-late mornings
The other day I was thinking about my blog (because you know I sit and daydream about all the recipes I could be making for you beauties) and I realized that I make A LOT of breakfast recipes.. If I am not making breakfast recipes I and making desserts/cookies/bars.. I want to start expanding my recipes to include more dinner and appetizer recipes. I mean to occasionally post a hummus recipe or curry rice recipe, but I would love to just have a wide range of recipes for you to try. What do you think? YAY OR NAH?!
I hope you all enjoy this Vanilla Blueberry Overnight Oats recipe! What do you put in your overnight oats?
