Blueberry Overnight Oats
I’m no stranger to overnight oats — I jumped on the bandwagon last year and have never looked back.
I had an a-ha moment when I made this Cherry Chia Pudding. I wondered what the outcome would be if I added chia seeds to overnight oats.
Let’s just say that I’ll never make overnight oats without them again. The chia seeds add such a great texture, and will keep your overnight oats from being too thin and soupy.
There’s nothing worse than soup overnight oats!
What are overnight oats?
Overnight oats are rolled oats that are soaked in liquid overnight until soft. The oats absorb the liquid, resulting in soft, creamy oats in the morning.
I love adding chia seeds to my overnight oats to thicken them up even more, and add a boost of nutrition.
