Creamy, flavorful lemon blueberry overnight oats. These vegan overnight oats are high protein and an easy to prep quick grab and go breakfast.



Lemon Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (use gluten-free oats if needed)
  • 1 tbsp chia seed
  • 1 tbsp hemp hearts
  • Pinch of salt
  • Lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp plant-based yogurt (I used unsweetened soy yogurt)
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk (I used unsweetened soy milk)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, optional

Blueberry Chia Jam

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, thawed
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • Lemon zest

Lemon Yogurt Drizzle

  • 2 tbsp plant-based yogurt (I used unsweetened soy yogurt)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Lemon zest


  1. Combine your oats, chia seeds, salt, a little lemon zest, hemp hearts, yogurt, maple syrup, milk and extract. Give everything a good mix and allow to sit as you prepare your blueberries.
  2. If thawing your blueberries from frozen, add to a bowl and heat in the microwave or on the stove top for 1 minute. Mash lightly with a spoon and then mix in the chia seeds and a little bit of zest until well combined.
  3. Now, make the lemon yogurt drizzle. Mix the ingredients together until well combined.
  4. Give the oats a final mix, and then place along with the blueberries and yogurt in the fridge for at least 1 hour or preferably overnight. You can layer the oats, blueberries and yogurt in a jar or separate the oats, blueberries and yogurt drizzle using an airtight lunch box container with divided sections for your toppings and then combine everything together when ready to serve. Top with extras as desired.


For super creamy oats, mix your oats again after they have been initially mixed and sitting for 15 minutes. Mixing it again gets the oats evenly coated with the liquid and breaks up any remaining clumps of chia seeds.

To prep the blueberries quick, just mix the frozen berries and chia seeds together and allow to naturally thaw overnight. When planning to enjoy your oats, just mash the thawed berries and give a really good mix before serving.

Adjust the flavors to your preference. Adjust the sweetness to your preference and feel free to add in extra ingredients as desired.
