With summer now getting in full swing, it can be a little more difficult to keep your nutrition game strong.  If you think about it…summer is a time when our routine is off, we’re busy, it’s hot outside, maybe running off on trips, and everybody seems to be going a different direction.

So I’ve partnered with Bob’s Red Mill (<–LOVE btw) to share a super easy and quick way to boost your nutrition with this yummy Blackberry Cobbler Easy Overnight Oats recipe.  This can be used as a filling breakfast, pre- or post- workout snack, or even a dessert.

Plus: fresh summer blackberries…are you kidding me?  Gimme!

What is Overnight Oatmeal (AKA Overnight Oats)?

For the longest time, I had NO clue what overnight oats were.  It wasn’t until about 3 years ago that I finally decided I needed to figure it out.  The concept just seemed so interesting!

If you are still wondering what are overnight oats, the good news is it’s very simple.  They are raw, uncooked oats to which you add some liquid (usually the milk of your choice, I like unsweetened almond milk) and other yummy flavors (all sorts of options here).  Then, you place them in the fridge overnight (hence: “overnight”), or for at least 4-5 hours.  While the oats soak in the fridge, they absorb all the liquid and flavors, leaving you a delicious and easy breakfast to grab the next morning.  Thus: overnight oats!

The benefit to overnight oats is that you don’t need to worry about cooking them in the morning, which is a big deterrent for me on busy mornings.  I’ve also found that I enjoy overnight oats cold and with lots of fun new flavors, whereas the normal stove-top oatmeal for me tends to be very plain and simple (coconut sugar, almond milk, and some raisins).

Another question I get asked all the time is, “Do I have to eat it cold?”   Believe me, I thought the SAME thing when I was jumping into the world of overnight oats.  The answer is no – you can eat them cold or hot, depending on your preferences.  I have actually found I like them cold, straight from the fridge (hello: easy!), but it’s totally fine to pop them in the microwave for a minute or two to heat them up.

How Long Do Overnight Oats Need To Soak?

It’s recommended that you soak your oats for at least 4-5 hours to allow them to fully absorb the liquid in the container and become tender.  Overnight is best because then you’ll be sure they’re ready to eat.  It’s also best to use a sealable, airtight container to soak your overnight oats.  I prefer pint-sized mason jars, but you can use whatever you have on hand.  The pint-size mason jars make it so you can have a perfectly portioned, grab-and-go-breakfast, which makes me happy.

Nope – no need to cook overnight oats at all.  Instead, you let the oats soak in the fridge and become tender over the course of several hours – no need to waste your time at the stove for these babies.

How Long will Overnight Oats Stay Fresh in the Fridge?

Once they’ve fully soaked in all that goodness, overnight oats will store for a good 4-5 days in the refrigerator in a sealed container, making them a great prep-ahead meal you can grab and enjoy during the week.  I like making a few different variations (see my fave options at the bottom of this post) so I have a different breakfast to choose from each morning.

This also makes overnight oats perfect for those busy mornings when you have to run, but still want to have a great, filling, and healthy breakfast to boost your nutrition and maintain your healthy lifestyle.

What Oats Are Best for Making Overnight Oats?

To make your own overnight oats, it’s best to use rolled oats (also called “old fashioned oats”).  These oats are very minimally processed and still contain a large portion of their nutrients, as opposed to quick cooking oats and minute oats.

I love using Bob’s Red Mill’s Old Fashioned Oats in my overnight oats recipes because they are whole grain, high in fiber, and provide 7 grams of protein per serving.  Nice!

While steel cut oats are a great healthy option for making steel cut oats, I don’t recommend them for making overnight oats because they will not break down and become tender like rolled oats will.  Instead they’ll remain quite chewy and difficult to eat.

On the opposite end, quick cooking oats will not work very well because they will break down too much and become mush.  Generally speaking, quick cooking oats aren’t the best anyways because they have been stripped of most of their nutrients.
