I’m going to assume you’ve never had overnight oats before. You don’t cook them. Brew is probably more accurate. One night in the fridge and you’ve got about the same consistency of oatmeal you might get with few solid minutes in some boiling water. Only it’s summer, and I’m only into hot breakfasts if they involve cheese.
I like to put this oatmeal in mason jars for a few reasons: 1) mason jars are pretty rad and rustic looking; 2) they are super easy to prepare foods in individual or single serve portions. 3) space savers – they take up way less room than a few bowls (and come with lids!). I could go on. Basically, I just really like mason jars.
Think of the future happiness when you realize, in a morning haze, that breakfast is already made. Literally just grab a spoon. No heating, peeling, cracking, or slicing required.
If you’re planning a few of these in your weekly meal plan, try a couple different fruits in the rotation. Blueberries and bananas might be my next try. Lately, I’ve been getting back into unsweetened vanilla almond milk. If that’s not your thing, regular milk would work just as well. Prep a jar before you go to bed – you can’t really go wrong.
