Overnight Oats with Blueberries and Honey

Overnight Oats with Blueberries and Honey is our all-time favorite summer oats recipe. Seriously, it’s incredibly easy, refreshingly cool, yet a hardy and healthy way to start the day.

I love that I can make 5 jars as easily as 1. And that they keep in the refrigerator for snacks or even another morning.

There are so many different ways to make overnight oats, the possibilities are endless.

I don’t like my overnight oats too soupy, my husband loves them more liquidy. Mine is perfect as is… he adds a bit of milk in the morning. I always keep the ratio listed in the recipe below… and we’re both happy.

With 3 to 4 minutes prep, this delicious and healthy breakfast can be ready and waiting in the refrigerator, every morning, all season long.

It doesn’t ever get better than that!

What Are Chia Seeds and Are They Healthy?

Completely optional in this recipe, of course, but if you’re new to chia seeds… here’s what you need to know.

• Chia is an edible seed that dates back to Mayan and Aztec cultures.

• It is an unprocessed, whole grain food.

• Unlike flaxseeds, chia seeds can be absorbed by the body as seeds.

• Contain concentrated, healthy amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium.

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
