Remove the oatmeal mixture from the fridge, add reserved extra blueberries then eat as is or allow to warm to room temperature

Serving Suggestion

If using fresh blueberries, I reserve some until the end and top the finished oats with the juicy berries along with a little honey for extra sweetness if that's your thing.

Cooking Tips

  • This recipe was intentionally dairy-free, but you can use your liquid bases of choice. Regular dairy milk is perfectly suitable for this recipe, as is other non-dairy type of milk like oat milk.
  • I chose maple syrup as the sweetener in this recipe as I find it works well with the spices used, however honey and agave or even brown sugar are great substitutes.
  • Either frozen or fresh blueberries work fine. There is no need to defrost frozen berries ahead of time, as this will occur during the overnight cooking process.
  • For additional texture or extra crunch add some crunchy pecans as a topping. Additional toppings ideas include mashed banana, ground flaxseeds, and a little bit of lemon zest.
  • Mix in some peanut butter or even almond butter to add a bit more protein to the dish.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can this oatmeal be heated?

Yes, if you must! Microwave the bowl for about 45 seconds on medium power.

Are Oats gluten-free?

Not always, partially because in some cases the facilities where they are processed produce other ingredients that aren't gluten free. It's always best to check the label.

Can you use quick oats?

Quick oats can be used, but I'm not a fan of the texture which is very soft, too soft for me.

Can you use steel cut oats?

Steel-cut oats will work but require a bit more thought. You'll definitely need to increase amount of liquid. You'll also possibly need to account for a bit more time as in like 2-3 hours so adjust your cooking start time accordingly.

What are the health benefits of oats?

Blueberry oatmeal provides a hearty breakfast. However beyond the great flavor and filling properties enjoying a bowl of wholesome oats guarantees healthy eating. Whole grain oats are rich in antioxidants, they consist of powerful soluble fiber which is great against bad cholesterol and heart disease, and can improve blood sugar control.
