If you’re looking for a quick and easy breakfast that you can make ahead of time, this is it!
There are so many times I wished there was something grab and go in the fridge that I really wanted to eat.
This is the one grab and go item I could eat every day!
There are SO many flavor options it’s crazy, I mostly eat them with strawberries and blueberries, but bananas and pineapple are yummy too. Add your favorite fruit, it’s that simple.
It only takes a few minutes to put these together, and you’re all set for days.
I like 4oz. servings if you want them larger just put it in 2 jars or double the recipe if you want 4-8oz. servings.
You’ll find more Oatmeal recipes:
I always have strawberries and blueberries in the fridge, but these would be great with any fresh fruit you have on hand.
You can add toppings to these to customize them.
I like adding some mini chocolate chips to the strawberries, it’s like having a dessert for breakfast without it being overly sweet!
And I really love adding a little coconut to the blueberries.
I’ve added a little peanut butter to the strawberry and it was yummy, and tasted like a PBJ!
