Overnight, No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal

Image

This easy, no-cook “summer porridge” has make-ahead convenience and is packed with nutrition to get your day off to a healthy start. Make it in individual mason jars for a perfect serving size and an easy grab-and-go breakfast straight from the fridge (it’s eaten cold). Take it along to work or anywhere. Great to serve on a breakfast or brunch buffet. High in protein, calcium & fiber; low in fat & sugar.

Step 1. Assemble these ingredients & supplies:

  • old fashioned rolled oats (not instant, quick, or steel-cut)
  • Greek yogurt (regular yogurt is thinner; if you use it, you’ll need to reduce the amount of milk)
  • milk
  • chia seeds; found at Whole Foods; available on Amazon
  • half pint (1 cup) mason jars, find them at Walmart and grocery stores

Step 2. Add oats, milk, yogurt, and chia seeds to jar, along with desired sweeteners or flavors

Step 3. Put a lid on the jar and shake to combine. (use white plastic jar lids sized to fit canning jars–they last longer than the metal tops and rims that come with the jars, and they are easier to screw on and off; some Walmarts carry them, and they’re available on Amazon)

Step 4. Add fruit and stir gently until combined.

Step 5. Place in fridge overnight and up to 2 days; maybe longer depending on the type and ripeness of the fruit. The non-banana varieties have been good after 4 days for me.
