Cold oatmeal to go


I feel like I start every post by saying,”I saw this online…” but, that is where I get my inspiration…and why lie, right?
So, I saw this recipe online, on pinterest actually, it was a recipe for refrigerator oatmeal using Greek yogurt, steel cut oats, and chia seeds. I don’t have any greek yogurt, couldn’t find any steel cut oats, and have no idea what chia seeds are, so I dug around in my fridge and found some instant oats, yogurt, dried cranberries, and a peach…

So I mixed them all together in a mason jar… I didn’t really measure, but about 1/4 milk, 1/4 yogurt, 1/4 fruit, and 1/4 oats. It was a little watery or runny because of the milk.

Then, I screwed the lids on and stuck them in the fridge overnight…By the morning, the oats had soaked up all of the milk, and it became nice and thick.

They actually tasted really good! I had never even thought of eating cold oatmeal before, but with the weather getting hotter, and hotter, eating hot oatmeal just isn’t appealing.
I also love using the mason jars… They are a perfect size, safe, and easy to clean. I have brought them to work the past few days, and have used them as a mid morning snack. The oatmeal makes them really filling. Also, the kids picked a topping and kind of yogurt they like and made their own flavours.
