I work every morning at 6:30am, I love breakfast, but I refuse to wake up extra early to make it. So I usually pack up my breakfast the night before, this generally consist of cereal, packets of oatmeal, and fruit. An okay way to start the day but I wanted something cheaper, with less sugar, and more filling. The solution? Night before oatmeal, AKA oatmeal in a jar!
I learned of this over-night miracle from Carrie at Moves 'N Munchies. I've just started reading her blog and am already quickly developing a long list of recipes and ideas, all of which are very healthy and consist of healthy goodness!
How to make this divinity
First thing you do is measure out the oats, I used one fourth of a cup of plain ol' Quaker oats. Next add "milk", I used one half cup of soy milk. Then add your spices! I used cinnamon and a little bit of all spice, you could add whatever you like! Maple syrup, brown sugar, peanut butter, the possibilities are endless! See why this is so amazing?
