Life is pretty chaotic right now and my eating habits have totally gone down the tubes, so it’s time to start meal prepping. In addition to my new Sunday Meal Prep series, this week I decided to also meal prep my breakfasts. I really enjoyed my No Sugar Added Apple Pie Overnight Oats that I made last year, and I still had some blueberries in the freezer, so I decided to make a new flavor, Blueberry Almond Overnight Oats.

Applesauce Sweetens Naturally

Unsweetened applesauce proved to be the perfect sweetener once again and since apples have a fairly neutral flavor, it didn’t compete with the blueberry almond theme I was going for.

Can I Use Non-Dairy Milk?

Any type of dairy or non-dairy milk will work fine for this recipe. Just keep an eye on the sugar content of non-dairy milks, if you’re concerned about added sugars. 

Is Chia Required?

I also added chia seeds to my Blueberry Almond Overnight Oats this time, only because I had them on hand and wanted to try to use them up. While they do add a lot of texture and fiber, these overnight oats are quite a bit less expensive without the chia. To skip the chia seeds, simply increase the amount of oats in each jar from 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup.

What Type of Containers Should I Use for Overnight Oats?

You don’t have to make these Blueberry Almonds Overnight Oats in mason jars. I used mason jars just because I have them, they’re pretty, and it’s my job to make food look good. Any resealable container will work just fine. :)

  1. Absolutely delicious. I sometimes like to make it with kefir instead of regular milk to get an added dose of probiotics.

    1. We have not tested the recipe with steel-cut oats. To use steel-cut for overnight oats, you should bring the 2 cups of milk to a boil, add the oats, take it off the heat, and cover. Let them sit for at least an hour, and then prepare the recipe. You might need to add a little more liquid. Again, this is just an educated guess, as we have not tested the recipe with steel-cut oats. Thank you! XOXO -Monti
