Blueberry Jam Overnight Oats
I don’t know about y’all, but I’m totally ready for the weekend. I’m having another brutal week and can’t wait for a couple of days with no alarm clocks, ringing phones, or urgent emails. Perhaps I can put my fire extinguisher away as well. One can always hope!
Since I’m kind of fried and the weekend is thankfully approaching, we’re keeping things short today so we can get through this thing called life and arrive at the two day break we all know and love.
Say it with me. WEEKEND! WOOT!
I think most of us need the weekend like a lighthouse beacon guiding us home in the middle of a dark and scary storm. I know I do!
I have to admit that I don’t typically eat breakfast on weekdays. If I do it doesn’t happen until about 10:00 am. I’m not sure why, but I just can’t usually handle the thought of anything more than coffee until I’ve been up for several hours. But to keep things real on this here website, I’ll be honest and admit that I’d rather spend my time sleeping as long as possible, then dedicate my before work awake hours making sure my hair is styled and my eye shadow and lipstick are in place before leaving the house (so I don’t scare anyone) rather than
waste spend time eating breakfast.
It is what it is. Don’t judge me.
Anyhoo – blueberry jam overnight oats are a huge hit in our house (mostly for Chris – see above) because we can make them, store them in mason jars in the fridge, and either pack them in lunch boxes at night or grab and go in the am.
They’re also a really simple and delicious comfort food to help you sail through the rough waters. I wish us all smooth sailing from here on out! Happy almost weekend, y’all!
P.S. It’s 5:00 somewhere! 🙂 Cheers!
Inspired by the Food Network
- We use regular coconut milk and found that the light version had less flavor
- You can substitute honey for agave
- If you substitute almond, rice, or other milk you may need less milk or more oats to get the texture you want since coconut milk tends to be pretty thick and we like it that way rather than runny
- Sometimes I add 1/3 cup of chia seeds to the mix

Yes, woot woot to the freakin’ weekend. I CAN’T wait. Seriously. I’m all amped up to have a nice weekend, relaxing and cooking some good food and getting our bbq on the go. I have to eat breakfast very morning or girl gets cranky 😉 These blueberry jam overnight oats look awesome. Love the lemon and coconut milk in there. Have a great weekend!!

I’m in with the woot woot for the weekend Rachelle! After being on vacation for a week the past few days back working have been that much harder! UGH!These overnight oats with blueberries look like the perfect breakfast. Just grab and go!
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy
I am so ready for the weekend too and the weekend means enjoying a long breakfast. This would be more of a quick weekday breakfast for me, but I am loving the blueberries. It looks beautiful.

I always tell myself I should make overnight oats but it just rarely happens! Such a pity, but next time I will have to make this version – it looks amazing!

I love overnight oats. It’s become a staple breakfast in my house. This blueberry version sounds wonderful.
Congrats on making it through most of your week! Last night at 1am after a crazy day, I was so proud of myself for just getting through, I texted my mom saying “I SURVIVED”. Needless to say, she was more that a little confused. I love overnight oats and I’ve just been getting into breakfast more, so these look perfect!

Ugh! I hear ya on needing the weekend. But then the weekends get here and they disappear alarmingly fast. Why does that happen? Speaking of alarmingly fast, these overnight oats wouldn’t last long in our house. They look delicious! Hang in there, Rachelle!
Have a great weekend Rachelle! 🙂 The oats sound delicious, love the blueberry jam! YUM!

Giiiirl, the weekend can not get here soon enough. It must be something in the NC air, because this week has been rough for me too. Come on weekend! Anyways, I’m the opposite of you, I need breakfast or I get really hangry… it’s not a pretty site. Ask boy. 😉 This blueberry jam overnight oats looks deeeelish and like a stellar way to start the day! Love me an easy, but scrumptious breakfast! Plus it’s pretty, which makes me giddy. Pinned! Cheers, sweets! Xoxo

I used to be just as you said, nothing more than coffee for the first few hours I’m up. But recently I’m starving the moment I wake up and head right into the kitchen. Isn’t it weird how we change over the years? I have had overnight oats on my to-do list for ages, but I’ve never actually made them! Looking at these oats with blueberry jam… I need to change that!

This bluberry jam overnight oats sound and look wonderful, Rachelle. Love how and easy and quick this is. Have a lovely weekend!
I need a weekend SO badly. So I’m with you. This week has been a killer. Next week might be, too. Sleep in between? 🙂
And oats for breakfast! This is lovely. Delicious and beautiful!
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice
Overnight oats are one of my favorite make-ahead breakfasts! This sounds delicious, Rachelle! And I’m still trying to get better about having breakfast, most mornings I just reach for coffee and yogurt!
Beverley @ Born to Sweat

Weekend! Woot! You enticed me with the deep rich purple and kept me with everything else! This sounds so yummy and comforting! This will become a staple in our house! Thanks! Enjoy your weekend, my friend!
I eat oatmeal almost every day for breakfast, so I’m always looking for new recipes. This looks so pretty. I love the blue trickling down. And it sounds so tasty! I love the coconut milk here.
This sounds amazingly delicious and YUM. Looks beautiful!
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop
Nothing better than a weekend for catching up on everything. I love breakfast and really love breakfast put together the night before. This looks super yummy!
Hope you had a great weekend Rachelle! These overnight oats look amazing!
Linda @ Veganosity
I adore overnight oats. Those blueberries are killing me!
karrie @ Tasty Ever After
Loving this and the fact that you use coconut milk in it too! I can’t eat breakfast until I’ve been up for a couple of hours and had a couple cups of coffee. Now I can make your overnight oats and eat one as soon as I get hangry 🙂
