On this fine day, I bring you these BLUE Overnight Oats — they’re sweet (yet sugar free), delicious (yet gluten free and vegan), and full of comforting vanilla flavor and nutty almond butter.

Definitely a breakfast favorite of mine these last few mornings.

But I’m sure you’re wondering…  what makes it blue??

I’ll tell ya.  These oats are naturally dyed blue thanks to butterfly pea flowers!

You start by making butterfly pea “tea” by steeping the bright blue flowers in hot water.  It’ll dye the water a vibrant royal blue. You can probably also use this as an all-natural Easter egg dye!  Once you get the blue “tea” you can mix it with almond milk (or any other milk/non-dairy milk you like), almond butter (or whatever nut butter you prefer — peanut butter, cashew butter, etc.), and vanilla extract.  Then stir in the oats, flax or chia, natural sweetener, and salt.

I’ve made these oats like, 4x already and will probably keep making it at the same rate over the next couple of weeks.  It’s so pretty to look at, easy to make, fun to eat, and DELICIOUS!

Made 100% nutritious with whole grain oats, a spoonful of creamy all-natural almond butter (maybe try Blueberry Nut Butter here!), some flax/chia seeds (the secret to making THICK oatmeal!), and a tiny splash of vanilla extract — these oats will satisfy your hunger AND your sweet tooth.

This is one thick and hearty, filling and nutritionally balanced meal  🙂

It’s delicious all on its own, but top it with your favorite yogurt, an extra spoonful of nut butter, and a sprinkling of chia seeds, and you’ve got yourself one helluva winner brekky.

    Moreover, the nutritional benefits of these oats are impressive. With whole grains providing fiber, essential vitamins, and minerals, and the added protein from Greek yogurt, it’s a wholesome and satisfying meal to kickstart the day. The inclusion of chia seeds adds omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for overall health.
