Delicious make-ahead breakfast for busy mornings.


  • ½ cup rolled oats (certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 cup plant-based milk (almond milk is the best here)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (or your favorite sweetener of choice)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp fresh orange zest
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ½ cup regular or wild blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • Optional add-ins: 1 tbsp chia seeds(add +/4 cup if adding), yogurt, peaches, mango, or strawberries, or mashed banana
  • For serving: fresh berries, hemp seeds, nut butter, yogurt, slices of orange


  1. Add the rolled oats, cinnamon, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, orange zest, orange juice, and stir well.
  2. Add the blueberries and stir again.
  3. Cover with a lid and let soak in the fridge overnight.
  4. Serve cold topped with more berries, hemp seeds, and nut butter, or yogurt if desired. See notes for serving the oats warm.


If you’re using frozen blueberries, only use a scant 1 cup of milk because the frozen berries will release some liquid as they defrost.

If you’re going to warm up the overnight oats in the morning, I recommend skipping the chia seeds. They turn the oats into more of a pudding and they don't taste as good when warmed up.
