Ingredients for Blended Overnight Oats

The ingredients for the base of these blended overnight oats recipes are staple ingredients that you probably already have on hand (we’re not just saying that 😂).

Then, add in the ingredients for each of the flavor combinations to make peanut butter, strawberry, fudgey, or coconut overnight oats — or heck, whip up a batch of all 4 at once!

here’s a tip!

Make sure you have ALL the flavor combination ingredients and not just the base ingredients before you start making these blended overnight oats recipe if you’re planning to make all the flavor combinations!

For the base

This super simple base recipe for blended overnight oats tastes great on its own, or combined it with any of our 4 flavor combinations below for a burst of flavor. You need:

  • Oats: We’ve tested this recipe with both rolled oats and quick-cooking oats and they both work great. 
  • Chia seeds: Chia seeds are our secret weapon for thick blended overnight oats. As chia seeds sit in liquid, they expand and become gelatinous. DO NOT skip the chia!
  • Maple syrup: This is our preferred all-natural sweetener, but you can also use honey, agave or even brown sugar.
  • Almond milk: Feel free to use any kind of milk with this recipe. We prefer unsweetened almond milk, but cow, soy, oat, etc. work, too!
  • Greek yogurt: Not only does Greek yogurt add protein, but it will make your oats super creamy. Feel free to use a plant-based yogurt if you’re looking to keep things vegan.

All you need to add to the base recipe is creamy peanut butter, and just like that you’ve got the perfect peanut butter blended overnight oats ready to enjoy:

  • All natural, creamy peanut butter

  • Almond milk
  • Maple syrup

Blended overnight oats will last around 3-5 days in the fridge. If you’re using fruit, we recommend days and if you’re not using fruit, they will last 5 days.
