Take advantage of the warmer seasons by making yourself this berry-loaded, antioxidant-rich, and wonderfully simple vegan breakfast.

Red, White and Blue Overnight Oats in a mason jar with a spoon

Since warmer weather means berries are at their very best, start your day with this “serve cold” breakfast loaded with bright and juicy berry goodness.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • Using only 5 ingredients, this vegan breakfast couldn’t be easier to make.
  • The berries and the maple syrup (or monk fruit) give these oats a wonderfully sweet flavor.
  • Overnight oats are a super convenient, healthy, and delicious way to start your day.
  • All of the prep for this recipe is done the night before, so all you do in the morning is remove the oats from the fridge and grab a spoon!

Are overnight oats healthy?

  • Yes they are! Oatmeal is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It’s loaded with fiber, magnesium, protein, and other nutrients. It’s super filling too.
  • Fun fact: Soaking the oats overnight helps with digestibility.(Ok, it’s not really a “FUN fact” but still good to know!)
  • This recipe is particularly healthy because of the berries. They’re loaded with fiber and antioxidants.

Top Tips for Making Red, White and Blue Overnight Oats:

  • I prefer to use almond milk in this recipe, but feel free to use any non-dairy milk you’d like.
  • Blackberries and raspberries would also go really nicely with these oats.
  • If you want to make breakfasts for a few days, triple this recipe – your morning self will thank you!
  • I find that these overnight oats are taste best when made in mason jars because they have lids, and, they’re easy to hold.
    But, you can use any storage container you’d like.

Ms. Audrey, I am disabled and experience lots of fatigue. I do love the Overnight Oats. For quick and easy for say a couple of weeks at a time… can I put my measured oatmeal, and any dry things like nuts coconut etc. in jar, add the correct amount of fruit using frozen fruits (more available) on top, put a lid on then store in freezer till putting it down in fridge then add fresh milk, liquids and seasonings etc, to soak for the night etc. Would that work?
