Blueberry Maple Overnight Oatmeal




When I made this combination of overnight oatmeal, I wasn't sure if I would like it, but what could I have been thinking? Blueberry and maple syrup give a hint of flavor, reminiscent of the blueberry pancakes I love. This is the perfect breakfast in a jar - its quick, easy and by using sugar free maple syrup, I even made it low carb.

I am a big fan of overnight oatmeal, especially in the summer and I make it quite often. Yes, cold oatmeal can be delicious and this method comes out creamy and ready to eat. The oatmeal soaks up the milk overnight and all the work is done for you. And, the addition of the fresh fruit makes it that much better.

To make this easy and fun breakfast, the night before, pour 1/2 cup oatmeal in a mason jar. Cover with a drizzle of sugar free maple syrup and then pour in 1/2 cup low fat milk. Put a handful of blueberries on top of the milk and oatmeal, then drizzle with more syrup. Screw on mason jar lid and place in fridge overnight. Enjoy the next morning!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. Cold oatmeal? Hmmm. I'll have to give it a try. (Although I guarantee the Great Scot won't, anything other than hot oatmeal with a bit of cream is a sacrilege to him, lol.)

  2. Thanks so much! John is diabetic and he has been struggling to find something tasty now that the weather is warm. This is perfect!

  3. I make yogurt parfaits by adding 1/4 cup oatmeal to 3/4 cup of yogurt, then adding fresh and frozen berries. Of course, with that ratio of oats to yogurt, it doesn't have the consistency of oatmeal. It's more adding a bit of fiber and chewiness to the yogurt.

    All that to say, cold oatmeal works for me,. I need to try this for sure.


  4. Great for camping too . . . gotta give it a try . . .

  5. I will definitely give this a try. xo Laura

  6. I will definitely need to remember this one during my busy mornings come early September when teaching Bible study.

  7. Hi Vicki, wow this sounds so good, easy and ready to enjoy. I will be trying this for sure. You could probably heat it in the microwave too, couldn't you? if you wanted it hot. But cold for the summer sounds so good. Thank you for sharing.


  8. I've been eating oatmeal for breakfast for about six months now, and I swear it has contributed significantly to a 12 lb. weight loss. I have never tried it cold though! Sounds interesting and I love that you can make it the night before. Anything that makes my mornings easier!

  9. These would be perfect for a camping trip too! Or a make-ahead dish for overnight guests.

  10. Sounds easy AND delicious!

  11. I have never considered eating cold oatmeal but I love oatmeal raisin cookies. this overnight oatmeal sounds like it would be kind of an oatmeal bread pudding with fruit! Yum!

  12. I can usually count on yummy food when I stop in to visit your blog

  13. That looks good, Vicki. I recently made a baked oatmeal with peaches and blueberries. Yummy. :)

  14. I have never tried oatmeal this way, it sounds delicious!

  15. How cool it that! It couldn't be easier and that's what I like in a breakfast recipe.

  16. Wow, this sounds so yummy, and cold oatmeal vs hot oatmeal for an AZ summer breakfast sounds very appealing!

  17. That sounds interesting. Certainly extra healthy with the blueberries!
