Night-Before Oatmeal-In-A-Jar

Rated as 3.83 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  • 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.

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

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

It lacked something - maybe sweetener or vanilla?

didn't use the almond butter and skipped the sugar and used stevia instead.
