If you love overnight oats, then blended overnight oats might be right up your alley.
Just like overnight oats, they’re easy to make the night before and are a great grab-and-go breakfast option. Unlike regular overnight oats, these blended overnight oats get a quick whizz in the blender so that they turn out smooth and creamy.
Yes, You Can Blend Your Oats for Overnight Oats
While it might sound a little strange at first, blending your overnight oats is a super delicious alternative to ‘typical’ overnight oats. Blending the rolled oats mixture before letting it sit in the fridge makes for a smooth, tasty treat — more similar to a thick pudding than textured, cold oatmeal.
What Happens When You Blend Rolled Oats?
When you blend rolled oats dry, they turn into oat flour. This oat flour can be used in baked goods (like baked oatmeal), mixed into smoothies, or — you guessed it — in overnight oats.
You can either blend the oats by themselves, and then stir the oat flour into the rest of the overnight oats ingredients, or you can make things easier by blending everything (as outlined in this recipe).
Any oats you’d use to make regular overnight oats can also be used to make blended overnight oats. Rolled oats and quick oats work perfectly, but you should steer clear of steel-cut oats, as their coarser texture doesn’t work as well for overnight oats.
You can top your blended overnight oats with whatever your heart desires! This peanut butter flavored recipe would be fantastic topped with banana, strawberry, or even chocolate chips!
The best blender to use for this recipe is one that also works as a food processor. Something like a Nutribullet is perfect, as the small size makes for minimal cleanup for this small batch recipe.
