Cold Oatmeal???

You have to try this at home!!! Instructions and recipes here!

I've been making these for a few months and really enjoy them.  You see, 4 days out of the week I work 3 and 5 am shifts.  I just can't eat cereal or a lot of anything that early.  So I usually eat a slice of toast/fruit/?? on the way to work and during my break I eat these.

As you can see I don't use the glass canning jars. Too heavy and face it, I'm a klutz! Go now, most stores have these plastic ones on hand.

Here's some of my basic ingredients (I do add a dash of vanilla extract as well and I didn't show the rolled oats--which I need more of!)

Here is a close up of after adding oatmeal, chia seeds, and milk.

Next is the yogurt. You can use plain or any flavor you want, as long as its Greek yogurt. I prefer this vanilla honey flavor.
There you have it the basic recipe! What you add next is totally up to you.

Since berries are in season and on sale here and well I just have to say this is when I LOVE living on the west coast!
These berries taste so freshly picked, it brings back memories of going in my backyard as a kid and picking them myself.  Sorry, but when I got these berries in the same taste, same brand too.  I think the extra transit time to the East coast really took the freshness out.

I usually only make 2 up at a time. They are good for 2 days, but since I'm off on Wednesdays I like to make it for the days I work.

Check out the website! Even if cold cereal like this isn't your thing, she has so many others to choose from!

Let me know what flavors you think you would like or have tried!

Peaches. I'm not a big fan of yogurt, but I have discovered that I like Peach and also cherry yogurt.

I have tried it. And I gotta say, I wasn't a big fan w/the yogurt. But I still enjoyed it cold. So what I do now is just add milk instead of yogurt. No sitting overnight. I guess I like my oatmeal drier? Ha ha! I'll add a bit of flax seed and some brown sugar and call it good.

Those look yummy! One rarely gets good berries in Hawaii or peaches. Something I really eat up when I visit the "Mainland"
