Blackberry Vanilla Overnight Oatmeal

Vanilla Blackberry Overnight Oatmeal

I am still on my overnight oatmeal kick–I’ve eaten it for breakfast every morning this week.

In fact, I like it so much that the thought of eating warm oatmeal is now unpalatable to me. (Who knew it was so much better cold?!)

Having exhausted my supply of cheap mangoes, I’ve moved onto other fruits, like blackberries. Which I used in this delicious Blackberry Overnight Oatmeal recipe!

Vanilla Blackberry Overnight Oatmeal

How to Make Overnight Oatmeal

  • Combine 1/2 cup of vanilla soymilk (or any other kind of vanilla milk you like), 1/2 cup of rolled oats, and 1/2 cup of fresh blackberries.
  • Stir ingredients all together and put them in the fridge in a resealable container overnight.
  • In the morning, stir again and add additional milk (if you want a thinner oatmeal) and your sweetener of choice, if needed.

Tips & Tricks

You can use any variety of milk that you like for this recipe, and it will work just the same. I used vanilla-flavored soy milk. But almond milk or oat milk are also great choices.

If you like your oatmeal a bit sweeter, add some agave syrup, honey, or brown sugar in the morning.

Feel free to swap the blackberries for other berries of your choice. Try strawberries or blueberries – whatever is in season!

        Would it work to add vanilla if I am using unsweetened coconut/almond milk?
        How much would you add? I have paste or extract..

          That should work! I haven’t tried it myself, so I’m not sure of an exact amount. I’d add a small amount, taste it, and add more if needed.

    Hello! Try this!

    1 Cup oats
    2 Cups water
    1/2 Cup raisins
    1 mashed banana
    optional a few pieces of chopped apple

    Soak the oats overnight with the apples and
    add raisins and banana in the morning. You can eat this raw or simmer it for 20-30 minutes. <3

      Sounds good–thanks for the tip! I’ve made overnight oats with banana slices before, but not mashed. I bet it’s more banana-y that way…

    Your overnight oats look so good! I tried making some with steel-cut oats, but they were still very hard in the morning. Not at all what I was expecting. Do the rolled oats soften up more? I’d really love to try this with some blueberries and almond milk.

      Yes, I did that too! The Kitchn had an overnight steel-cut oats recipe, but I thought it was awful. I have TMJ and my jaw hurt from trying to eat them for the rest of the day! The rolled oats soften up much more–try making it again with those & I think you’ll be happier with the results.

      Yeah, I put lots of extra cilantro in there, so between that & the basil, it was very herb-y. 🙂

    Your deconstructed zucchini looks way healthier than the breaded varieties!

      Yup, it’s a lot lighter. When my mom made baked breaded zucchini, she would put a pat of butter on each zucchini slice (!)–this has a tablespoon of oil in the whole recipe!

      Ha! I said the same thing before trying this–the first few times I made overnight oats, I heated them in the microwave. But then I tried a spoonful of them cold & was converted. 🙂

    I’ve got to get on this oatmeal trend. I make it lots for the kiddos – and wouldn’t you know they scarf it down when I add a little brown sugar. But I made the mistake of adding blueberries and letting them eat it on the couch – BAD IDEA.
