Happy hump day! Start your mornings on the right foot so you can finish the week strong with these Blueberry Coconut Protein Overnight Oats. They’re a great way to use up some of those end of summer blueberries. Plus they have 18 grams of protein per serving, a dose of healthy fat from the coconut, and heart-healthy whole grains, so you’ll be ready to kick your day in the butt.
I love how well coconut goes with so many other flavors. It’s like the ultimate complementer…except maybe vanilla, which goes with even more flavors. Mango + coconut? Amazing. Chocolate + coconut? Awesome. Savory spices + coconut? Perfection. But if the blueberry + coconut combo doesn’t float your boat, check out some other yummy (and high protein) overnight oats combos.
Blueberry Coconut Protein Overnight Oats
- 3/4 cup blueberries
- 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp arrowroot flour (can sub with cornstarch)
Whisk protein powder into almond milk until smooth. Mix in oats, chia seeds, coconut, and coconut extract. Set aside.
Add blueberries and maple syrup to a small saucepann and bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue to boil for 5-10 minutes or until the blueberries have burst (you can help them along by pressing them with the back of a spoon).
Whisk arrowroot flour into <1 tbsp water, then whisk into boiling blueberries. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Layer oats with blueberry mixture in a covered or resealable container, then refrigerate overnight.
