She who has 8 pounds of blueberries makes Blueberry Pie Overnight Oatmeal! Among other things of course.
I was sitting on my patio thinking of ways to use up a shipment of blueberries I received when bam! PIE! Then I remembered I was supposed to start eating healthier (Hold on Friday, I’m coming for you)
I go back and forth all the time. Should I care about these 10 pounds or just forget about it and eat whatever I want? I’m leaning on caring about it right now so I’ll put the pie on hold and enjoy this overnight oatmeal all week instead. This is a great way to use up blueberries or any other berries you may have in the fridge or freezer. Each serving is packed with an entire cup.
If you’re new to overnight oats, you simply combine equal parts of oats and a milk of your choice. I tend to use almond milk in mine. Then you just stir it up and leave it covered in the fridge overnight. For extra flavor I threw a pinch of cinnamon in there.
When cooking down the blueberries, I only used a teaspoon of sugar since my berries are super sweet already. Once cooled, it resembles jam or pie filling.
This recipe is easily doubled or quadrupled for the whole family!
- ⅓ cup old fashioned oats
- ⅓ cup almond milk
- pinch of cinnamon
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1 tsp sugar
- splash of water
- pecans and additional blueberries for topping
- Combine oats, milk of your choice and cinnamon in a small container with a lid. Stir together and refrigerate over night.
- Meanwhile combine the blueberries, sugar and a splash of water over medium high heat. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes until the berries cook down and thicken. Refrigerate.
- In the morning (or once the cooked berries have cooled) top the oatmeal with the blueberry mixture. Sprinkle additional blueberries and chopped pecans over top.
