My children love to help me cook, so no-cook recipes are wonderful when I can find a good one that they love too. This oatmeal is so easy to prepare and to have ready to go all week for those hectic mornings. A bonus is that they have fun preparing it and eating it; healthy choices start now!
How we did it:
- jar / glass jar / mason jar (I used the wide-mouthed pint sized jars)
- almond milk (3/4 cup)
- chia seed (1 tbs)
- dried cranberries
- greek yogurt (1 tbs)
Once you have the basic recipe for this oatmeal down, you can change up the ingredients to however you like. (For example, you could add dry fruit, coconut, honey, or flax seed.)
Emma added our ingredients to the jar. We make several of these at a time on Sunday afternoons. That way we have a healthy breakfast to go all week.
We used almond milk, but any milk will work. Almond gives the oatmeal a nice nutty flavor.
Once all of our ingredients were in each jar it was time to shake them up!!
We popped them in the fridge and in a few hours, we had some yummy oatmeal ready for us.
Sometimes we heat the jars up or add fresh fruit. Each family member has a different oatmeal preference in our house. I like being able to grab a jar and go!
