Hello Overnight Oats, my old friend!
I get really excited whenever I reach the bottom of a nut butter jar. Never waste those last delicious bits!
If the container is made of glass, I’ll pour oatmeal in it. If it’s made of plastic (like this PB Crave one) I make muesli.
Overnight Oats in a Jar (a.k.a. OIAJ) are nothing new, but since it’s been a while, I thought I’d give a refresher course.
Basically, fill your precious with rolled oats, yogurt, water/milk…
…you can do this the night before, but let it sit for at least an hour to thicken (goes much faster if you use quick oats, as opposed to the old-fashioned ones).
Throw in whatever toppings you want – I like fresh fruit.
Greek yogurt works best. If you use plain, you’ll probably want to add some stevia/sugar/honey/maple syrup…
…I used YoKids, so it was already sweet enough.
Can even be assembled the night before, lidded, and carried with you to work, for breakfast on the go!
I don’t have an office, so…
- Almost-Empty Peanut Butter Jar
- 4 oz. Greek Yogurt
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup water or milk of choice
- Handful of fresh strawberries, chopped
- Sweetener to taste
- Fill the jar with all the ingredients, stir, and let sit for at least an hour, or overnight. Enjoy!
