Shubhra - July 19, 2022, 4:30 a.m.

I think tonight I made this for the 100th time of not more. My family’s favourite and one of my biggest pregnancy craving. Our frozen blueberry consumption is through the roof because of this recipe. You’ve outdone yourself with this, Sadia!

PUL Team - July 19, 2022, 7:16 a.m.

Awe we're so happy it's being enjoyed by everyone, Shubhra! Wishing you and your growing family an abundance of health and happiness💛


Lisa - June 29, 2022, 3:31 a.m.

Absolutely delicious. It's filling but doesn't make you feel weighed down or bloated. And the perfect consistency and ratio of sweet to tart. This is definitely going down as one of my favorites.

PUL Team - July 1, 2022, 8:01 p.m.

So happy to hear, Lisa, thanks a bunch ✨


Ella - June 17, 2022, 9:52 a.m.

Delicious! A perfect mix of flavours, and mixing chopped nuts with nut butter, oats and creamy yoghurt creates an interesting texture too. It was filling and energising after my morning workout and I love how I could eat it on my way to work without creating a mess. I’ll be coming back to this one!

PUL Team - June 19, 2022, 2:07 a.m.

We're so thrilled it's being enjoyed, Ella, it means so much!


Kari - June 15, 2022, 4:42 p.m.

Delicious and easy. The whole family loves this one!


JoAnne - June 10, 2022, 2:58 a.m.

Tried over night oats for the first time, love the incredible flavors!!! I truly enjoyed your easy vegan recipes

PUL Team - June 12, 2022, 11:21 p.m.

Woohoo! It means so much, JoAnne, thank you 🙂


P.Venkateswaran - May 9, 2022, 3:35 p.m.



Marit - April 25, 2022, 7:57 a.m.

It is delicious!!!! It really feels like I’m eating a dessert in the morning but then wholesome! It also feels always so good to follow your recipes, because they are fun, vegan, pretty and delicious. I feel like I’m taking care of my self (and have some self love) if I follow one of your recipes. Thanks a lot for that❤️❤️❤️

PUL Team - April 25, 2022, 4:08 p.m.

Hey Marit, thank YOU for taking the time to share the glowing feedback and being part of the PUL family ❣️


Sonia - April 3, 2022, 10:41 p.m.

Simply delicious and incredibly convenient since I usually don't have a lot of time (or patience) in the mornings. Also love how filling it is!

PUL Team - April 4, 2022, 12:04 a.m.

So glad the overnight oats are being enjoyed, Sonia ☺️


Amy - Feb. 18, 2022, 10:14 p.m.

This recipe is delicious! I used peanut butter, because that is what I had and is worked well. Thank you for the recipe.

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2022, 4:33 a.m.

A lovely substitution, Amy, thank you!


Caitlen - Jan. 19, 2022, 9:25 p.m.

My partner has just warmed up to the idea of having oatmeal instead of bread for breakfast, and now we’re currently going through all oatmeal recipes on your site!! This blueberry one specifically is our current favorite. Super easy, nutritious and incredibly yummy! It’s often too heavy for me to finish before work, so I just take the jar with me and eat the other half mid-morning :)

Thanks so much for the amazing recipes, PUL team!

PUL Team - Jan. 21, 2022, 4:57 a.m.

Hey Caitlen, aw how exciting! We hope you enjoy the other oatmeal recipes as well 😃


Ali - Dec. 29, 2021, 11:57 p.m.

Amazing i make it every night!


Jessica - Dec. 27, 2021, 8:04 p.m.

These overnight oats are so colourful - and delicious too! They taste like an indulgent yet wholesome dessert for breakfast. I also like how you include the step by step photos in your recipes, which are very helpful. Thank you PUL team!

PUL Team - Dec. 28, 2021, 7:12 a.m.

Awe we appreciate the kind words so much, Jessica, thank YOU 🤗


Wendy - Dec. 10, 2021, 2:46 p.m.

Knowing this is going to sound silly, I'm asking it anyway: what size jar do you use for these overnight oats? I'm going to stay with family this weekend and made two jars of these, as it looks amazing. Unfortunately, I only have larger jars. My breakfast for the weekend looks a wee bit sad.

PUL Team - Dec. 11, 2021, 10:16 p.m.

Hi Wendy, not a silly question at all! Our mason jars tend to be around 450 grams (or 2 cups worth), such as the ones shown here: https://amzn.to/2tekWbH. Perhaps adding extra toppings is one idea to help fill up the jars if yours are larger 😃


Michaela Alvekvist - Sept. 22, 2021, 6:15 a.m.

Super yummy and filling. AND super easy :D I always swap flax for chia seeds and it works grate

PUL Team - Sept. 22, 2021, 4:07 p.m.

So happy to hear, Michaela, thanks for sharing!


Amélie - Sept. 19, 2021, 9:43 p.m.

Quick, easy, mealprep and delicious ! Thank you so much !


Petra - Sept. 10, 2021, 7:54 a.m.

Love it! It’s so nice for a working day to have this breakfast allready made the evening before!


Mags - Sept. 3, 2021, 8:18 a.m.

LOVE ITTTT!!!!! I am a huge fan of overnight oats for my work week. This and the apple pie are the best! I'm a huge fan, Sadia and PUL team! First time commenter, long time follower ◡̈ thanks for helping me become a better and healthier cook.

PUL Team - Sept. 4, 2021, 1:16 a.m.

Woo! Thank you, Mags, for being here and sharing the lovely review 🤗


Cari - Aug. 28, 2021, 11:46 a.m.

All the overnight oats and grains recipies look delicious but I am wondering how do they work in terms of "soaking" the grains. We are meant to soak grains and legumes to get rid of the phytic acid etc and then rinse and change the water so we do not take it back when eating them. In these recipies the oats soak in the milk and then we eat it all together. Am I missing something? Thanks for explaining.

PUL Team - Aug. 28, 2021, 11:28 p.m.

Hi there, Cari, thanks a bunch for the question! It's definitely a popular one.

If we're using old-fashioned rolled oats for overnight oats, we don't necessarily soak and then discard the liquid before adding more as you mentioned. Soaking indeed helps to break down some of the anti-nutrients. Rolled oats are also already pre-steamed and pressed, so we find when we soak them overnight there's hardly anything left to drain anyway as it soaks most of the liquid right up. So totally alright to enjoy as is. We hope this helps for now 😊

In case you haven't already seen it, you may also be interested in our article on soaking: pickuplimes.com/article/benef… for more information!


Ola - Aug. 16, 2021, 10:49 a.m.

This overnight oat recipe is simply delicious! I love how easy it is to make:) the blueberry oats were a game changer for me in terms of oats for breakfast, and I've never looked back! Thank you <3


Georgia - Aug. 10, 2021, 10:41 a.m.

This is absolutely divine! I swapped out the cashew butter for peanut, but I can't wait to try with cashew. Digging into this breakfast is the best start to a day. I can't have soy as I'm intolerant, any ideas of something to add for a protein boost?

PUL Team - Aug. 11, 2021, 2:20 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the overnight oats, Georgia! Adding some nuts or seeds is one idea. You may be interested in our article on protein for some other ideas if you haven't already seen it: pickuplimes.com/article/prote… :)


Pooja - Aug. 9, 2021, 1:12 a.m.

I never thought overnight oats could be so tasty 🤤 Keeps me full and energised till lunch time. Thank you so much for this recipe🥰


Jessica - Aug. 1, 2021, 8:35 p.m.

I had been eating traditional oatmeal practically every morning for years until I tried out this overnight version. Absolutely delicious, and especially with warm weather, better than warm oatmeal. The biggest advantage over my previous breakfast is that it's so easy to take with me to work for example. I also make it to take to wherever I go where I feel vegan options might be limited or non-existent - I don't at all mind eating this for lunch either. :)

PUL Team - Aug. 4, 2021, 5:52 a.m.

We're so appreciative of the review, Jessica, thanks a bunch for taking the time to share! It means so much that the recipe is being enjoyed 😊🌻


Anne - July 28, 2021, 7:47 a.m.

This is my favourite overnight oats of all the ono’s I tried. I add some lemon zest to the blueberries. I also love that it is so ‘how not to die’-friendly!


Diti Miething - July 25, 2021, 11:15 a.m.

This overnight oats recipe is amazing. Absolutely DELISH !!! I always have blueberries in my freezer so I can easily whip up this recipe any weeknight. I also tried this recipe with mixed berries and whatever nut butter I can find in my pantry. That's the good thing about PUL recipes, they are so versatile :).
PS: My husband isn't vegan but every time I ask if I should make a batch for him, his answer is Yes Ofcourse ;)

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 1:22 a.m.

Oh so lovely, Diti, thank YOU for sharing the glowing review with us ☺️


Alicia Gorzen - July 25, 2021, 1:05 a.m.

Made this, and it was absolutely delicious! Really filling too! I enjoyed having my breakfast all ready the next morning!


Nahia - July 24, 2021, 10:35 p.m.

Amazing recipe! These overnight oats make me wanna wake up in the morning😋


Madhuri - July 24, 2021, 9:12 p.m.

Love all 5 overnight oats recipes. My kids got hooked on to eating oatmeal everyday. Thanks to these awesome recipes!

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 8:09 p.m.

Thank you, Madhuri, for sharing this with us! So glad your little ones are enjoying the recipes ✨


Nina - July 24, 2021, 7:20 p.m.

Soooo good and easy to mealprep 🤗 loved this recipe


Kelsey - July 24, 2021, 6:34 p.m.

This was the first time recipe I did to try overnight oats and it was so yummy and tastes like a blueberry muffin. So yummy and filling and great for hot summer mornings when you don't want to cook. I use gluten free oats and they work great as well.

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 12:19 a.m.

We're so glad you're enjoying the overnight oats, Kelsey! Thanks a bunch for sharing 🤗


Courtney - July 22, 2021, 11:54 p.m.

These oats are AMAZING!! I eat oats everyday for breakfast, and this is hands down my favorite overnight oat recipe! A tip: if you don't finish the full portion, put the leftovers back in the fridge and enjoy later as a snack :)

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 2:07 a.m.

Such a compliment, Courtney, and a lovely tip! 😃


Amanda - July 22, 2021, 8:02 p.m.

This was really good and very filling! I have made it by microwaving/mashing the berries and also just popping frozen berries right in with the oats (to speed up the process a bit). Both work really well! And cashew butter is perfect!

PUL Team - July 23, 2021, 3:21 a.m.

Thanks for the insight, Amanda, we're so glad you're enjoying this one 😃


Petra - July 22, 2021, 4:48 p.m.

I used this recipe to make my first ever overnight oats. Why oh why have I waited so long. This was the most delicious breakfast. I couldn't eat it all so will have the rest later as a dessert :-)
I will try all the other overnight oats recipes next. Can't wait.

PUL Team - July 23, 2021, 2:34 a.m.

We hope you enjoy the overnight oats, Petra! They're a game-changer 😍


Catherine - July 12, 2021, 3:28 a.m.

All of these overnight oat recipes are amazing! This one is perfect to add into the weekly mix! I love the blueberries and usually add fresh ones into the oats in the morning. Blueberry muffins are one of my favorites and these are a healthy/hearty alternative.

PUL Team - July 17, 2021, 11:40 p.m.

Super thrilled you're enjoying the overnight oats, Catherine, thank you for sharing ✨


Gabrielle - July 9, 2021, 4:32 p.m.

While slightly more complicated than my go-to overnight oats, these are worth every bit of (minimal) additional effort! So delicious and a great way to start your day. Definitely a permanent addition to my brekky rotation!

PUL Team - July 14, 2021, 10:03 p.m.

So glad the labour of love paid off! Thank you, Gabrielle ✨


Lizzy - July 9, 2021, 11:05 a.m.

Love, love, love this overnight oats recipe. I had tried recipes in the past but until I hit this one (and the others on the blog, I just nearly always have the ingredients for this one!) I wasn't a huge fan. I now eat them multiple times a week as the perfect amount of fuel for my training!

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 2:50 p.m.

So happy you're loving the muffins, Lizzy! Thanks a bunch for the review 🤗


Nika - July 9, 2021, 5:02 a.m.

Fantastic recipe! Nutritious but also a nice change from regular porridge


Sarah - July 9, 2021, 3:46 a.m.

This is SO good. Absolutely delicious.


Victoria - July 8, 2021, 7:30 p.m.

Delicious! I've made overnight oats before, but they never really grew on me until I tried your ratios. Especially love the nut butter mixed in. I top it with your chia jam.

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 6:55 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Victoria, so glad you're enjoying the overnight oats 😃


Kristina R - June 16, 2021, 2:52 a.m.

I have sent this recipe to everyone I know because I am so in love with it. Thank you for such a delicious, healthy breakfast recipe!


Cris S - June 5, 2021, 4:51 p.m.

This is really good as well! 😁


Jessica - April 12, 2021, 11:29 a.m.

This is so lovely! Made it for this morning and I'm surprised how much it actually tastes like a muffin, or more like a pie to me, pretty sure the cashew butter gives it that texture. It's really delicious. I used half the maple syrup and added a bit of salt for taste and it worked perfectly. Gonna try all the different overnight oats but this is already a contender for first place.

PUL Team - April 12, 2021, 4:41 p.m.

Oh this is so wonderful to hear, Jessica! Thank you for taking the time to share 😃


Becky - April 7, 2021, 6:56 p.m.

I have made all of the 'overnight oats that taste like desserts' recipes and they are each fantastic. I have very little time to get ready most mornings so I love having such delicious and filling breakfasts ready to go.

PUL Team - April 20, 2021, 6:43 a.m.

We're so glad that your enjoying the overnight oats, Becky!


healthy sailor girl - April 1, 2021, 3:12 p.m.

This recipe contains quite some calories. I figured that I would leave out the peanut butter as that slims it down a lot, but it became quite watery...I also used regular milk and yogurt.

does this make a difference and how can I improve it?

Anna - April 8, 2021, 10:42 a.m.

Hi, i would suggest to take less milk. When i didn't had time for overnight sitting i just put everything in a bowl ecxept of yoghurt and put it for 1-2min in the microwave until the berries are defrosted. Makes the same effect: the oaks soak up the milk. I use dairies too. It tasted warm, but cold even better. With the microwave tecnic you could see fast which amount of milk works for you. Normally works when you cover the oats with milk, not more. Berries and rest on top, stir and microwave or put in the fridge.
For a breakfast i'm looking for saving some calories too. So I think about less nut butter, buttermilk instead of milk and yoghurt with 0,2% fat. I will work out which one tastes same good like this


Rebecca - April 1, 2021, 3:06 p.m.

Just tried this and it's really good!

PUL Team - April 3, 2021, 1:13 a.m.

Woohoo! Thanks, Rebecca 🥳


Bally - March 30, 2021, 10:03 p.m.

Is perfet, delicious and healthy. Thank you for keeping us update.
Keep up the good job and cooking. You help us a lot. ❤️

PUL Team - April 3, 2021, 12:47 a.m.

Thank YOU for the support and kindness, Bally! 🥰


Daniela - March 29, 2021, 10:09 a.m.

This was sooo good! It felt like having dessert for breakfast. Thank you.

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 11 p.m.

So glad that you enjoyed it, Daniela 🙂


Amanda - March 27, 2021, 7:50 p.m.

I’m literally making this to bring to lunch everyday of the week now, it is soooo delicious, and this is coming from someone who usually hate oats. Great recipes! Loving the new website

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 10:03 p.m.

Ooo we're so happy you tried out this one despite not liking oats! Thank you, Amanda 😀


Caitlin - March 27, 2021, 2:52 p.m.

So so so delicious! Definitely a favorite! These oats are so creamy, filling, and it's like eating heaven in a jar with the amazing rich cashew butter, sweet blueberries, and creamy yoghurt. I added chopped dates instead of the maple syrup, and my, my, what an incredible combo!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 5:55 p.m.

Thank you for the glowing feedback, Caitlin! Chopped dates are a delicious idea 😍


Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - March 24, 2021, 8:27 p.m.

It’s delicious and resembles a muffin so well😋
I excluded the maple syrup due to my type 1 diabetes, but this overnight oat is sweet enough. I was very happy eating it with Swedish bilberries (so much more flavour and colour than the American blueberry)

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 6:29 a.m.

How lovely to hear! Super cool you used some Swedish bilberries, Louise!


lpb - March 24, 2021, 8:24 p.m.

SO. DELISH. Favorite from your new video. Added a little sprinkle of salt - brings out the flavors. Very mild flavor profile.

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 6:11 a.m.

This makes us so happy! Thanks for sharing the salt tip :D


Maggie - March 24, 2021, 8:24 p.m.

Delicious! Great make ahead breakfast, also, I love the new website!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 6:10 a.m.

Thank you for your kind words, Maggie 🤗


Ana - March 22, 2021, 8:46 a.m.

Delicious and satisfying breakfast!♥️ I'll definitely make it again

PUL Team - March 30, 2021, 11:03 p.m.

So happy to hear you enjoyed it, Ana!
