This is the last refrigerator oatmeal that I made up in my first batch of oatmeal making! :) I promise there will be something new tomorrow!! This started out as a strawberry banana refrigerator oatmeal, but I prefer the taste of raspberries and so that is usually what is in my house. So, obviously you can mix it up as much as you want and add whatever flavors you prefer to the oatmeal. I found this recipe to be to big for my pint jar, so I just split it into 2 pint jars and it worked perfectly for adding your mix ins the next morning! The kids were also happy with this one, although they did add a LOT of mix ins as they continued to eat it lower! :)
Raspberry Banana Refrigerator Oatmeal
(recipe found on pinterest via pepperlynn.com)
1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2/3 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons raspberry jam
1 small banana, chopped
Combine the oatmeal, yogurt, milk and chia seeds in a small bowl or 2 pint jars, cover and allow the mixture to sit in the refrigerator overnight.
In the morning, stir in the desired mix-ins and enjoy!
