These blueberry cottage cheese overnight oats are a super filling high protein breakfast topped with sweet honey, blueberries, and crunchy pumpkin seeds.
I’m popping in a little late this week. There were some issues on the backend of my website, stopping me from posting for the last 24 hours. Thankfully, readers were still able to access the site, although it may have been a little slower. However, I couldn’t access the blog to post, so I likely will throw up a new post on Saturday, so be on the lookout for that!
Now, on to today’s recipe! This blueberry cottage cheese overnight oats were inspired by my recipe for blueberry cottage cheese oatmeal from 2016! But, it’s hot as H E double hockey sticks out and I can’t eat hot food, or I’ll melt.
Dramatic? Maybe. Also, 100% true, though.
Cottage cheese is one of my favorite ways to add protein to overnight nights. (If you need more ideas, check out my post how to make high protein overnight oats four ways!) Cottage cheese is just so filling, and if you like the texture of it (I do), you’ll love this protein-packed healthy breakfast idea!
The beautiful thing about this recipe is you can make the base by combining your oats, cottage cheese, and almond milk (or any milk), and then you can customize the toppings however you want!
The base will be very liquidy to start with, but the oats will absorb the excess liquid overnight so in the morning you’ll have a thick, yet fluffy mixture to start layering on the toppings too.
Because cottage cheese is naturally more salty than greek yogurt (typically used in overnight oats recipes), I like to go with a sweet and salty kettle corn ish theme whenever I make this base. That’s why I love to top mine with a combo of salty, crunchy roasted seeds and sweet, bursting blueberries, or other berries.
Enjoy! And let me know if you try this easy recipe!
