Refrigerator Oatmeal

Tried out the new refrigerator oatmeal craze! It is delicious, and super healthy friends……definitely shareable.

1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
1 heaping teaspoon chia seeds
2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup
1/4 – 1/2 cup of *mix in
*mix in options: strawberries, bananas, pineapple, apple sauce, almonds, coconut, raisins, endless possibilities and combinations!

Combine ingredients in a container, and mix well (I used mason jars and shook them with the lid on).

I will probably double the recipe for each jar next time;). Then refrigerate overnight…..THAT’S IT!!!

In the morning stir and serve. It is delicious and the texture is fun and filling. Chia seeds are new for me. I found them at Costco. They end up with a tapioca consistency in this recipe, and do not change the flavor. But they are a nutritional powerhouse:

And the biggest bonus, the kids loved it! And we still have 3 more jars in the refrigerator for tomorrow;). I’m excited to try out more combinations!
