|All you need- fruit, milk, oats, sweetener, and a jar.|
|There's my mixed up oats ready for the fridge in the corner, and I ended up cutting the fruit up finer for it to fit in better with the oats and in the jar.|
-1/4-1/2 cup oats (depending on how big you would like your serving)
-1/2-1 cup milk (double the amount of oats used)
-1/2- 3/4 cup diced fruit, berries, and/or dried fruit (I used maybe 1/5-1/4 of an apple and 2 strawberries for a small batch)
-brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, etc. to taste for sweetening
-optional: dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.
-nuts, granola, sunflower seeds, etc. for topping
Put the first four/five ingredients in a jar, screw on the lid and shake well. Let sit in the refrigerator overnight.
In the morning, take off the lid, top with your nuts/granola/seeds, and enjoy!!!
*notes on the jar: for a small batch, you can use a 1 cup/8 oz. jar or container, for a larger batch upgrade that to a pint jar or container.
|Come morning, just pull out your oats, top, and enjoy!|
This recipe would be perfect for taking with you in the morning as a transportable breakfast, having for lunch at work, or whatever. I doubted the simplicity of this recipe/idea, but totally loved it once I made it- the perfect way for me to have my oats when it's too warm for oatmeal usually!
