These blueberry lemon overnight oats are a healthy and filling breakfast recipe! They're extra creamy, high in protein, and bursting with bright lemon and juicy blueberries. Prepare them the night before, and breakfast will be ready when you wake up!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


  1. Combine ingredients. In a bowl or base of an airtight container, combine all ingredients except blueberries. Stir until an even mixture forms, and all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  2. Chill. Cover the bowl tightly and chill the mixture overnight.
  3. Serve. In the morning, divide the oats into two servings. Top each with 1/2 cup blueberries and any other desired toppings, or save a serving for later. Enjoy!


  1. Chilling time. If using rolled oats (recommended for this recipe), I like the texture best when it's been chilled overnight because the oats have maxed out their absorption of delicious milk, yogurt, and flavors. If you want or need to eat them sooner, 4 hours is typically the minimum chilling time I recommend.
  2. Storage container. Overnight oats is one of those recipes that I actually love to make in the same container I store it in (less dishes = yay!). I love to use any glass storage container that's at least a 4-cup size with an airtight cover. This way, you can stir, cover, and pop it in the fridge.
  3. Toppings. This is the best part of overnight oats, so have some fun with it! Blueberries are of course a topping for this recipe, but coconut flakes, blueberry jam, almonds, more chia seeds, scoop of yogurt, granola, or other nuts/seeds will add delicious flavor and texture.
