Blueberry Muffin Batter Overnight Oats

Blueberry Muffin Batter Oats 1

This may sound kind of odd, but I like blueberry muffin batter even more than regular cake batter.  I know it is slightly less sweet but that is what I love about it.  That and the few berries that I may or may not have purposely left behind in the bowl so I could enjoy them wink wink.  It is good stuff!  And, if you are making vegan batter as I always do, then no risk for salmonella contamination. My Dad would always warn me of that when I begged to lick the bowl as a child when he would make muffins on Saturday mornings.  But I never listened.  So as much as I love blueberry muffin batter, when I was making my overnight oats last weekend, and I had some blueberries...it had to be blueberry muffin batter flavor.

I gave it the flavor of blueberry muffin batter by including a bit of vanilla and cinnamon, but also some Sprout Living Epic Vanilla Lucuma Protein Powder. For some reason, when I mix it into things it reminds me of muffin batter, so it was perfect. And not only that, I needed an extra boost of protein.  I always add chia seeds in my overnight oats as well for a hit of omega 3 oils.  This stuff was delicious!  Like blueberry muffin batter and oatmeal got married and had a child.  The best part is, it is simple to make and all you need to do the next morning is enjoy!

Blueberry Muffin Batter Overnight Oats

Serves 1-2

1/2 cup gluten free steel cut oats or rolled oats (if you want this to be raw use raw rolled oats)

1 1/2 cups filtered water

2 scoops Sprout Living Epic Vanilla Lucuma Protein Powder*

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/4 tsp cinnamon

stevia or maple syrup to taste

1 cup fresh blueberries

In a jar, combine all ingredients, and stir to mix together.  Let sit in the refrigerator covered overnight.  Enjoy in the morning!

*If you do not wish to add protein powder, then simply use your favorite non dairy milk, 1 cup instead of the 1 1/2 cups water in this recipe (the protein powder adds heft and richness, so you milk instead of water gives it this).

    Hi, Am I replacing the water with the milk if I'm not using the protein powder? Thanks! Sounds so good!

      It doesn't matter, if you would like to you can, but I sometimes just use water.
