Delicious Overnight Jar Oatmeal

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.

Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup organic low fat vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (or any other berry)
  • 5 drops Sweet Leaf vanilla creme liquid stevia
  • pinch of cinnamon

Optional Toppings:

  • almond slivers
  • dusting of nutmeg
Directions:
Place all ingredients in 8 oz canning jar, close lid tightly and shake until all ingredients are blended.  Refrigerate over night.  In the morning open up and add any nuts if you wish and poof….there’s your breakfast.
