Blueberry Maple Refrigerator Oatmeal

Posted on | April 23, 2012 | 12 Comments

No-cook oatmeal! Just put all the ingredients in a jar and mix them. Place the jar in the fridge overnight and enjoy a healthy, effortless breakfast in the morning. Or how about you eat one for lunch? And think about all the different fruits you could add… This is such an awesome idea…

As a special treat, chia seeds have been added. They are quite the healthy addition to this already healthy meal. This oatmeal is so tasty… and healthy… and easy…


for  one jar (size: 1 cup)

  • 1/4 cup uncooked old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chia seeds
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup blueberries (or more)


Rinse a 1 cup jar. Add the oats, milk, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and the maple syrup. Close the jar with the lid, and give it a good shake to combine the ingredients.

Remove the lid, add the blueberries and stir them in with a spoon. Close the jar again and place it in the refrigerator overnight or up to two days. Eat chilled.

Guten Appetit!!!

    Those fresh blueberries! Yummy!

    I have a question. Do people eat oatmeal in Germany? I sometimes explain it to people and they’re like, “Huh? What are you talking about? Hafer is only to put over yogurt” or something like that. I don’t even like oatmeal. It’s just something I’ve been wondering about for a while. Your version sounds neat. :)

    @ Erin: Germans eat Müsli which often contains oats. You eat it with milk like cereal (or sometimes with yoghurt). Oatmeal would be “Haferschleimsuppe” in German, very unappetizing name… haha… You can prepare it with milk, water or broth. Usually older people eat it and/or people with gastrointestinal health problems… Younger people rarely eat it though.

    I have to admit that I’m not a big warm oatmeal fan (and found out that oatmeal cookies are actually really good). I don’t like the texture of it, but this cold version is so interesting! I’ve never had it before. And look abundant blueberries are on top. I have a feeling that I’ll enjoy this very much. ;-)

    Wow ungekochtes Oatmeal- auf die Idee waere ich ja nie gekommen. Da ich derzeit aus Babygruenden unter Zeitmangel leide, waere das natuerlich eine super Idee und Chia seeds habe ich auch gerade gefunden! YAY, ich liebe oatmeal. Du hast aber recht dass in Deutschland kaum einer so was isst. Vielleicht Babies…hahaha. It is their loss!

    @ Jen: Hast recht, Babies essen oatmeal auch… hahaha… Ja wirklich schade, dass Oatmeal in Deutschland kaum gegessen wird. Ich denke aber, der Name (Haferschleimsuppe) und Ruf (hilft bei Magendarmbeschwerden) sind nicht sehr hilfreich… hahaha…
    Das ‘ungekochte Oatmeal’ waere wirklich genau das Richtige fuer Dich, wenn Du keine Zeit hast. Mir schmeckt Oatmeal auch richtig gut, und mit Chia seeds, ohh, ein Traum… :-D

    Haferschleimsuppe?! Ahahaha. Sorry, but hahaha.

    For the people who can’t read German, that translates to “oat MUCUS soup.” MMM! Or I guess it could be oat slime soup. That’s a little better, isn’t it.

    Thank you for the answer! :) My husband is useless for such things.

    @ Erin: I know… hahaha… I’d probably go with the ‘slime’ translation BUT it isn’t any better… hahaha… So this might explain why Germans rarely eat it. Would you eat ‘oat slime soup’?… hahaha…
