Overnight Oats in a Jar


Growing up I loved oatmeal.. so much that to this day it still brings back memories of my grandparents and my great-grandma. I haven't really eaten it too much lately as I think it takes too long to make and... I don't really take the time in the morning.

I wanted to make a post dedicated to an easy yet delicious breakfast that I have been eating a few times a week. Initially, I was making the exact recipe from Skinnytaste.com called Skinny Overnight Oats in a Jar which is absolutely DELICIOUS. Though when you make something so many times you pretty much memorize the recipe and start to become creative!

I altered the recipe a bit and have really enjoyed the outcome! Here's my slightly altered version based on the things I've tried:

Ingredients:

1/4 cup quick oats
1/2 cup Almond Milk (you can use skim milk though I find it is very running)
1/4 banana - mashed
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup of your favourite fruit (or what you have on hand!)  -I've used raspberries, fresh ontario strawberries, blueberries and even apples (which is one of my faves)
drop of honey or maple syrup
pinch of cinnamon 
Chopped nuts (optional)

Put all ingredients (except nuts) into a mason or tupperware jar and give it a good shake! Put into refrigerator overnight and enjoy in the morning. I've made these a few days ahead of time and they've been good 3 days later.



This is a must try and I highly recommend it! It's easy, delicious and takes less than a minute to put together.

Have you tried another variation? If so, please share!
