Mornings are not my thing, so if I want anything beyond a cup of coffee before heading out the door, I have to prep it the night before. My overly-expensive love of the oatmeal at Starbucks® led me to start making this tasty Mason Jar Oatmeal.

  • Mix hot water into oat mixture, return lid to jar, and allow to sit, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir well and eat.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute any sweetener for the coconut sugar, if desired.

How much hot water you need depends on they type of oats you use and how thick you like your oatmeal.

I bought coconut sugar and almond butter for this recipe (never had either before) and honestly didn't care for the taste of the almond butter (most likely a personal taste preference) and couldn't taste the coconut sugar. If you don't have the coconut sugar on hand don't worry about that as it's just not a dominant layer of flavor in this. The oatmeal mixture very thick so I added some milk to reach the consistency I prefer added some chopped strawberries and a sprig of mint. This was OK but if I were to make again I'd probably try good old-fashioned peanut butter instead of almond butter. I'll use the coconut sugar on other things but unfortunately that small jar of almond butter will be heading to the curb this week. Read More

This was OK but pretty bland tasting. Also I needed another 1/4 c water to get the consistency I like. Read More

I made mine with honey instead of sugar. Sometimes I use a cinnamon honey. Yummy! Read More

It lacked something - maybe sweetener or vanilla? Read More
