Blueberry-Almond Oatmeal

Category: Breakfast Recipes

Throw together this healthy oatmeal the night before and enjoy it the next morning. We love it cold, but if you prefer a little warmth, remove the lid and microwave the oatmeal until hot, about 1 minute.


  • 3/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 drops pure almond extract
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sliced almonds
  • 2 teaspoons honey or agave nectar


The night before, combine the milk, oats, blueberries, brown sugar, lemon zest, vanilla, almond extract and a pinch of salt in a glass pint jar or other container with a lid. Secure the lid and shake. Refrigerate at least 6 hours up to overnight. In the morning, top with the almonds and drizzle with honey.
