I love overnight oats and I’ve made many different versions, but this one is the most fruity! I was hooked on berries all summer long, so I decided to make a berry-packed overnight oat recipe! The best part is you can use fresh or frozen berries for this recipe! So no matter what season it is, you can make this recipe.

If you want to add more protein to these berry overnight oats, you can either add Greek yogurt or add half a scoop of protein powder. I don’t recommend adding more than half a scoop as protein powder usually contains sweetener and it can make these oats too sweet.

Berry Overnight Oat ingredients

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Rolled Oats– Rolled oats or old-fashioned oats work best in this recipe. Quick-cooking oats tend to break down too much when sitting overnight.
  • Milk– I used almond milk, but you can use dairy, coconut, or any milk you prefer.
  • Maple Syrup– I used a little maple syrup for sweetness, but you could also use honey or stevia if you prefer.
  • Vanilla– A little vanilla extract helps add sweetness.
  • Salt– A pinch of salt enhances the overall flavor.
  • Chia Seeds– This helps thicken the oats. You can leave them out if you don’t have any, but it does make the oats much thicker. If you don’t have chia seeds, I recommend using yogurt in place of half of the milk, to create a thicker consistency.
  • Berries– I used a combination of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. Fresh or frozen berries work fine. If you don’t have berries, try my apple cinnamon overnight oats or my banana bread overnight oats instead.

Topping Ideas

I love topping this recipe with additional fresh berries but you can also sprinkle on granola, chopped walnuts, or shredded coconut. If you want to add some additional healthy fats, try a drizzle of peanut butter or almond butter for a PB&J-style twist!

Do I have to use chia seeds to make overnight oatmeal?

Chia seeds are tiny seeds that are packed with fiber, protein, healthy fats, calcium, manganese, and magnesium. When mixed with a liquid, they expand and thicken. They create a puddling-like texture in these overnight oats. You can typically find chia seeds in the organic section of the grocery store, but you can also order chia seeds on Amazon. If you don’t have chia seeds, don’t worry — you can still enjoy this recipe! The oats just won’t be quite as thick.
