FAQs

Are overnight soaked oats healthy?

Are overnight oats actually healthy? The answer is a resounding yes! Overnight oats are a great source of fiber (1), plant protein, and nutrients. Soaked oats also have a lower glycemic index than cooked oats (2), meaning they won’t cause spikes in blood sugar levels. The blueberries in this recipe are an excellent source of antioxidants (3) and fiber, and the seed mix provides heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids (4).

What type of oats do I use for overnight oats?

I like to use old-fashioned rolled oats for my Blueberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats because they are heartier than quick oats and they have a great texture. But you can also use instant oats, or steel-cut oats (but these may take a bit longer to soften).

Can I use water instead of milk for overnight oats?

One common question is whether milk or water should be used in the recipe. Both milk and water will work, but milk will result in a richer and creamier final product. If you are looking for a lighter option, water is a perfectly acceptable substitute.

How long do overnight oats last with fruit?

Overnight oats will last in the fridge for up to 3 days, so they are perfect for meal prep. The fruit may start to break down after a few days, so if you want them to stay fresh and plump, add them right before you eat the oats.

Do you add toppings before or after overnight oats?

You can either add the toppings before you go to bed, or wait until the next morning. If you add the toppings before, they will have a chance to marinate and become even more flavorful. This works best when using firm fruits such as berries, pineapple or peaches. If you wait until the morning, the toppings will be firmer. This is a good option if you are using crunchy toppings like graham crackers or granola.

Can frozen fruit be used in overnight oats?

Yes! You can definitely use frozen fruit to make to make overnight oats. It will be very tasty, and frozen fruit last longer than fresh and tend to be budget friendly. Frozen fruit is also a great alternative to fresh fruit, nutrition wise.

How long should overnight oats be soaked?

For best results, soaking time should be between four and twelve hours. This will allow the oats to soften and absorb the liquid, resulting in a creamy, dreamy breakfast. If you are short on time, four hours will still yield tasty results. However, if you have the time, letting the oats soak for twelve hours will result in an even more delectable breakfast.

Do you eat overnight oats cold or hot?

I like to eat my Blueberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats cold, right out of the fridge. However, if you prefer your oats hot, simply pop them in the microwave for a few seconds before eating. Either way, this is a delicious and easy breakfast that will start your day off on the right foot. Give it a try!

What is the best size Mason jar for overnight oats?

I personally like to use an 8-ounce jar. It’s the perfect size for me because I’m not usually too hungry in the mornings. However, many people prefer an 18 oz jar. It’s big enough to add all of the toppings without overflowing. I’ve linked two of my favorites below.
