Why you’ll love these oats

If you love a good oatmeal recipe but you don’t have the time to make them in the morning or they’re not keeping you full all morning, I’ve got you covered! Here’s why you’ll love this oat recipe:

  • Blueberry cheesecake flavor– need I say more? These overnight oats feel indulgent but are a great way to start your day with nutritious and satisfying ingredients.
  • 10 grams of fiber per serving from high fiber ingredients like whole grain oats, chia seeds and blueberries to support your gut health and keep you satisfied.
  • 23 grams of protein per serving from the milk and Greek Yogurt to keep you fuller, longer so that you’re not reaching for snacks all morning or staring down the clock waiting for lunch. Greek yogurt is a great source of protein that works great for overnight oats.
  • They’re super quick to meal prep– you really only need five minutes and some simple ingredients to prep them! Just make a few ahead, pop them in the fridge and you’ll have breakfasts ready to go all week. Perfect for busy mornings!
  • They’re an easy recipe with no cooking required. Overnight oats are “no cook”. You just throw the ingredients in a jar and mix. That’s it!

One of my favorite ways to make “healthy” meals more satisfying is to add flavors that feel a little bit more exciting, like cheesecake! If you’re looking to change up your breakfast routine, this is a must try.

Ingredients

  • Rolled oats: The best type of oats to use for overnight oats are rolled oats. When they soak up the liquid from the recipe they end up being the perfect texture! Instant oats or “quick cooking oats” do work, but they’ll yield a much mushier end product.
  • Milk: Use whatever milk you like to drink, whether traditional milk or dairy-free. Just keep in mind that regular cow’s milk will have a bit more protein than the plant-based versions.
  • Plain Greek yogurt: Plain Greek yogurt helps to give the oats the tangy “cheesecake” flavor and also adds a ton of protein! I prefer full fat or 2% for the creaminess.
  • Cream cheese: Just a little bit of tangy cream cheese (a tablespoon per serving) adds the classic “cheesecake” flavor you’re looking for to these oats!
  • Frozen blueberries: I love using wild blueberries for these oats because they get nice and syrupy. You can also add regular frozen blueberries or fresh blueberries.
  • Chia seeds: Chia seeds are a great addition to overnight oats because they help to thicken them, but they also add fiber to keep you full and support your gut health! Use ground flax seed in place of chia if you’re out!
  • Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract helps to flavor your oats.
  • Honey: Honey or maple syrup both work great as a sweetener for this recipe. If you’re aiming for a lower sugar breakfast, you can always skip the honey or use a lower sugar liquid sweetener, like this monk fruit and allulose syrup.
  • Crumbled graham cracker: This is optional, but crumbling some graham cracker over the top of these oats takes them to the next level, promise!

To make even higher protein, add 1/2-1 scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder.

Recipe FAQ

Can I make these dairy-free?

To make these oats dairy-free, swap out the yogurt for dairy-free yogurt and use dairy-free cream cheese. Make sure to also use your favorite non-dairy milk. Almond milk, oat milk, coconut milk, or soy milk would all work great. Soy milk would typically yield the highest protein oats.

Can I use flavored yogurt?

You can absolutely use flavored Greek yogurt instead of plain. Vanilla Greek yogurt or blueberry Greek yogurt would both work great. If the yogurt is already sweetened, just omit the honey or add to taste.

Best container for overnight oats

Look for an airtight container with a lid that’s between 10-16 oz. My favorite overnight oats containers are either these 12 oz. containers with bamboo lids, or 16 oz. mason jars with lids like these. They’re both the perfect size and great for food storage in general. Use within 3-4 days for max freshness.

I like a thicker/thinner oatmeal. How do I adjust?

Everyone has a different preference for texture, so you may need to play around with the ratios to get your ideal combination. If you like a more liquidy overnight oat, you may prefer to add 3/4-1 cup of liquid. If you like a thicker overnight oat, don’t add as much liquid and reduce the liquid to 1/3 cup.

More topping ideas

One of the best ways to make overnight oats feel “fresh” and even more delicious when you grab them out of the fridge is to add your favorite toppings for flavor and texture. Here are some ideas:

  • Frozen or fresh berries
  • Granola
  • Cereal
  • Sliced bananas
  • Chopped nuts
  • Drizzled peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter or sunflower seed butter
  • Chocolate chips
