Overnight Oats with Coconut Milk and Chia Seeds

I know, overnight oats, kinda last year huh?  But, I realized I never posted about them and quite frankly. they one of the most perfect summer breakfasts.  With just a touch of prep work the night before, you have a cool, creamy, filling breakfast in zero minutes.  I like adding the Chia seeds because they add a pudding-like texture to the oatmeal plus a little bump of protein but feel free to leave them out.  Also, the coconut milk adds a touch of tropical flair and works perfect if dairy isn't your thing.

Overnight Oats

  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup-ish coconut milk (use light coconut milk, its not as thick, think regular milk vs. cream)
  • honey as desired

In a bowl or Mason jar combine oats, chia seeds, and blueberries.   Pour coconut milk over mixture until covered.  Drizzle with honey.  Allow to sit overnight.  Enjoy in the morning.
