Overnight Oats in a Jar

I am a fan of all things oats.  Loaded with protein and fiber, but relatively low in calories.  The high amount of fiber keeps you with a full feeling for a long time afterward.  Something that boxed cereal could never do.  I often have homemade granola for breakfast.  This is so easy, I wonder why I didn’t try it sooner!

I initially saw a recipe on Food Babe’s blog called, The Perfect Parfait.  Her recipe inspired me to try it.  So good!  I love how this recipe is very adaptable.  You can really add whatever you like and change it up daily so you never get bored. I used a recycled pickle jar to hold my oats, but a mason jar would work well too. This is great for those mornings that you really have to rush.

Prep Time 5 min



  1. Rinse your groats beforehand. Throw everything in the jar the night before.  If you like things a little sweet, you could throw in some chopped dates or raisins. 
  2. Store in the fridge overnight.  Just pull out and eat in the morning.  Easy as that. This will be a breakfast I will have at least twice a week. I love it and I hope you will too.
