Meet my I’m-not-a-morning-person-and-I-don’t-want-to-lift-a-finger kind of breakfast.  That’s exactly what these Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats are.

Mix up your oats, chia seeds, milk of choice, and a little sweetener the night before, and you wake up to softened gloriously creamy oats.

How something so healthy can taste like a treat is beyond me. 🙂

I’m no stranger to overnight oats — I jumped on the bandwagon last year with my Blueberry Overnight Oatmeal Parfaits.

I also tried chia pudding this year with my Cherry Coconut Chia Pudding Parfaits  — clearly I’m into breakfast parfaits — and I couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like to merge the two.

The result is a super satisfying, nutrition packed breakfast that I’m completely addicted to, and it’s been my staple breakfast for the past 2 months.

I used almond milk for the liquid here, but whatever type of milk you prefer will work great.

I made a huge batch of these Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats and divided them up into jars in the morning, so they’re perfect for meal prep.

These oats are just perfect with a sky-high pile of blueberries, but feel free to add sliced almonds, coconut flakes or any other add-ins that you deem appropriate.

The bottom line is, let’s make life simple for ourselves without sacrificing our health in the process.  And while we’re at it, let’s make it delicious!

These Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats cover all those bases, and your tired self will thank you in the morning.

Now if I could just figure out how to do that with my coffee, I’d be in business. 😉
