I make overnight oats for breakfast at least one or two weeks out of the month. This superfood version is one of my favorites. Not only is it packed with nutrient rich foods, almost all the ingredients can usually be found in my pantry.
It’s the perfect on-the-go breakfast because it’s filling without weighing me down and also comes in it’s own little convenient mason jar container.
What “superfood” means
“Superfoods” are exceptionally nutrient-rich and healthy foods. There is no scientifically defined criteria for what a superfood actually is. It is not an actual food group, but more of a marketing term.
Generally, things that are considered “superfoods” are rich in vitamins, healthy fats, antioxidants, and/or fiber.
Superfood Overnight Oats Ingredients:
- Old-Fashioned Oats
- Chia Seeds
- Dried Blueberries
- Dried Goji Berries

Old-Fashioned Oats – Oats have been shown to help lower blood cholesterol levels, aid with digestion, and improve metabolism. Make sure you use old-fashioned oats and not quick oats. I prefer Bob’s Red Mill.
Dried Blueberries – Blueberries are anti-inflammatory, high in potassium and vitamin C, and packed with antioxidants.
Dried Goji Berries – Goji berries are high in vitamin C, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin (an antioxidant).
Probiotic Yogurt – When buying yogurt, make sure it is one that has live cultures. These live cultures, or probiotics, are “healthy bacteria”. They are believed to help with many things including IBS, digestion, and high cholesterol.
Chia Seeds – Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, calcium and fiber. I buy them in bulk because I make a lot of chia pudding.
Sliced Almonds – Almonds are high in protein, vitamin E, and magnesium. They are also full of healthy fats.
Hemp Milk – Hemp milk contains more calcium than dairy milk. It also has omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. If you’d prefer to use another liquid, almond milk and oat milk are both good substitutes.
