I have been seeing lots of recipes flying around on blogs and pinterest for oatmeal in a jar. I figured, what do I have to lose, I love oatmeal. One of the things that was so appealing about this concept was how convenient it would be for breakfast on the go. I go to the gym pretty early in the morning, like 4 am early and then end up eating in my car before heading into work by 6:30. So this was an easy way to pack breakfast for these early morning adventures. Plus, there is something cute about eating out of a canning jar. It sure beats my prior breakfast of a protein bar and a banana. Also, it is easy to change up the recipe by simply adding different fruit or nuts to the mix. So, give it a whirl. It takes 2 minutes of prep time the night before and then by the morning, you are good to go.
