If you’ve been a Daisybeet reader for a while, you know I adore oatmeal and oat recipes. Oats are affordable, widely available, easy to prepare, and nutritious (which my Registered Dietitian heart loves).

These thick and creamy blueberry pie overnight oats are an instant favorite for me! They really taste like blueberry pie, so it’s like eating dessert for breakfast. Just like my other overnight oats with Greek yogurt recipes, these are packed with high-quality protein and dietary fiber to keep you full for hours and stabilize blood sugar.

You can prep these healthy overnight oats in just 10 minutes. Refrigerate overnight (or for at least 2 hours) so they can get thick, creamy, and soft. This recipe is vegetarian, gluten free (if using certified gluten free oats), and makes 2 servings.

Step-by-step instructions

  • Start by cooking the frozen blueberries on the stovetop in a small skillet or saucepan with a pinch of salt and a little maple syrup. Cook until the blueberries have burst and are softened, releasing their juices. Set this aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine old fashioned oats, chia seeds, unsweetened shredded coconut, and salt.
  • Add the soy milk, Greek yogurt, and maple syrup to the same bowl. Mix well to combine.
  • Pour the cooked blueberries onto the oat mixture.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight (or at least 2 hours).
  • The next morning, mix everything up to combine the blueberries with the oat mixture.
  • Portion into two bowls and enjoy!

How long do overnight oats last in the fridge?

Once prepared, overnight oats stay fresh for up to five days in the fridge. Store overnight oats in a covered bowl, tupperware container, or glass jar with a lid.

Note that the longer overnight oats sit, the softer they will become. The oats continue to absorb more and more liquid, which breaks down the grains into a softer texture.

Best oats for overnight oats

The best type of oats to use to make overnight oats are old fashioned rolled oats because they provide the best texture. Quick oats or instant oats are too mushy, and steel cut oats do not absorb enough liquid.

Oats nutrition & health benefits

Oats are a very nutritious food to include in your diet. It’s a great food to eat regularly, especially if you follow a plant-based diet!

One half cup of uncooked oats provides:

  • 4 grams of dietary fiber (15% of your daily needs)
  • 5.3 grams of plant-based protein
  • 1.7 mg iron (9% of your daily needs)
  • 0.186 mg thiamin (16% of your daily needs)
  • 55.89 mg magnesium (13% of your daily needs)

Oats contain soluble fiber, which can help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels. The main type of soluble fiber in oats is called beta-glucan. This type of fiber is linked to health benefits including reduced cholesterol levels and supporting gut health.

Blueberries nutrition & health benefits

Blueberries are an incredibly nutrient dense fruit. One cup of fresh or frozen blueberries provides:

  • 4 grams of dietary fiber (13% of your daily needs)
  • 14.4 mg Vitamin C (16% of your daily needs)
  • 28.6 mcg Vitamin K (24% of your daily needs)
  • 0.497 mg manganese (22% of your daily needs)

Blueberries have more fiber than other types of fruit, making them a lower sugar choice. In addition to vitamins and minerals, blueberries are also rich in antioxidants. The antioxidants in blueberries may help prevent certain chronic diseases and keep our cells healthy by fighting off free radicals.

Greek yogurt nutrition & health benefits

Plain Greek yogurt gives this overnight oats recipe a boost of high-quality protein.

Greek yogurt has more protein and less carbohydrates compared to regular yogurt. One cup of full-fat Greek yogurt provides:

  • 22 grams of protein
  • 9.8 grams of carbohydrates
  • 245 mg calcium

Since Greek yogurt is a fermented food, it contains probiotics. These are healthy bacteria that live in our digestive tract and enhance gut health, immunity, and may reduce the risk of some diseases. Learn more about the health benefits of Greek yogurt here!
