I went through a phase of these a while ago, but never took the time to take pictures or blog about them... Oatmeal is kind of hit or miss for me. Sometimes I love it, while other times it just tastes blah to me. So, I decided to give these a try and I'm so glad that I did! They are easy to prep up and throw in the fridge to have ready for breakfast in the morning. They were also great to make before a camping weekend and bring along with us. No getting up and getting breakfast ready for the kids, they could just grab their own jar! I have a few more flavors in the fridge waiting to be tried, but I knew that I had to start with the raspberry vanilla flavor because anything raspberry is a sure hit for me!! Delicious...
