How to make a good overnight oatmeal

Here are my tips for making a delicious blueberry overnight oatmeal :

Let it sit overnight

It may sound obvious, but this recipe should be kept in the refrigerator overnight. Usually it takes at least 4 hours to get the right texture. But it is okay to leave it longer in the refrigerator. In fact, he might even stay there for several days. It just depends on the ingredients used.

For this exact recipe, I recommend no longer than 1 or 2 days as it contains fruit. But if you make one with no fruit, just staple ingredients, it could even last a week.

Variations for blueberry overnight oatmeal

The variations of this recipe are almost endless. Here are a few that I suggest you try if you want to customize this recipe easily :

Replace maple syrup

An easy option would be to replace the maple syrup with any other sweet ingredient. For example, you can try agave syrup or honey. You can also skip this ingredient to reduce the total value of added sugar.

Use different fruits, fresh or frozen

One of my favorite aspects of overnight oatmeal is that you can use a wide variety of fruits. In addition, due to the fact that there are several hours in the refrigerator before serving, it is interesting to use frozen fruit and let it thaw out while waiting.

It is also generally more economical to use frozen fruit than fresh fruit. This recipe uses blueberries, but you can swap them for strawberries, raspberries, peaches, etc. without having to adjust the other ingredients.

Use your favorite milk

I recommend using low phosphorus almond milk, but you can use your favorite milk instead. Use what is recommended based on your own nutritional restrictions. It can be cow’s milk, soy milk, rice milk, etc.

Whichever one you use, you don’t need to adjust the liquid amount in the recipe, the oatmeal and chia seeds should absorb the same.

Quick Oats

I wrote earlier that I recommend rolled oats, but quick oats can be a nice twist. However, it can absorb less liquids, so you should reduce the liquid ingredient by at least 1 tablespoon or 2.

Add anything else

Honestly, this is one of the most versatile recipes I feature on this website. You can literally add whatever you want. Just experiment. You can add spices, zest, nuts, etc. The limit is your imagination.
