single serve overnight oats

I honestly don't know why I haven't posted this super quick recipe before! I know that overnight oats are no new concept, there are about a million different recipes out there. But I have been making this for years. It's perfect for those mornings that you have to be up and out of the house before the sun and before you can, or want, to think clearly. I just started working at a gym and once a week I have to start at 4:45 am! This is the first time I've ever had to start that early, it's actually kind of fun and novelty (we'll see how long that lasts) because there is no one on the road, or awake for that matter, and I get done with my full shift of work midday!

Regardless of what "early" is for you, mornings can be stressful for several reasons. Making this quick recipe the night before takes the guesswork out of choosing a healthy breaky so you can tackle your day feeling fueled and fierce.

single serve overnight oats
  • 1/2 cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)

Measure out all the ingredients into a mason jar or plastic container. I like jars because I can just give it a quick shake to mix everything together. In a container you may need to stir them with a spoon to evenly incorporate everything. Then leave it in the fridge overnight.

Here I've made two servings, each jar contains the amount in the recipe above.

I like to transfer my overnight oats into a bowl in the morning and top them off with fresh banana slices but you can just as easily take the whole jar to go.. don't forget a spoon!

Like this recipe? Give my vanilla + turmeric overnight oats a try. Experiment with different fruits, dried fruits, nuts, and different spices (cacao, turmeric), because there are no rules and there are definitely no limits to the flavor combinations of overnight oats!
