Overnight Oats in a Jar

I love breakfast and lately I am in love with oatmeal. On a normal day, I will have eggs, toast, and cottage cheese for breakfast. Not so long ago though, I discovered baked oatmeal and I liked it so much I've had to include it in my weekly breakfast rotation. That is why when I saw overnight oats in a jar on Pinterest I got curious.

At first I wasn't sure if it was going to turn out any good, but this week I decided to try it. Oh, I am so glad I did! I made it the night before with high hopes, and the next morning I decided it was a keeper! My husband concurred :)

Overnight Oats in a Jar (or any container you can seal!)
Adapted from Kath Eats Real

Serves 1


1/2 cup old fashioned oats (you can use quick oats, steel cut, rolled oats)
1/2 cup of milk (any kind you like, even almond or soy)
2 spoonfuls of your favorite yogurt (I used plain because that was all I had but I will try greek vanilla soon)
Sweetener of your taste, aka splenda, sugar, honey, maple syrup
Handful of blueberries (any berry fresh or frozen)
Half banana
Flax seeds or chia seeds (optional)


Mix all the ingredients in the jar, shake, and refrigerate overnight!
When you are ready to eat you can add granola, cereal, nuts, more fruit. The possibilities are endless. Just don't add pineapple ;)
