Make-Ahead Instant Oatmeal Jars
Looking for a healthy plan ahead breakfast meal to take to work or for your kids? Make you own instant oatmeal and save some money and be prepared!
1/2 cup uncooked quick oats
1 pinch salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon spice
1 tablespoon dried cranberries (or dried fruit of your choice)
1 tablespoon almond slivers (or nuts of your choice)
1 cup water
To make your oatmeal jar, layer the ingredients in the following order: oatmeal, salt, cinnamon, cranberries and almond slivers. Make as many jars as you’d like and store in a dry area. If you don’t have mason jars, feel free to make oatmeal packets using zip-lock bags. Remember to label with the date so you can keep track of freshness.
To cook the oatmeal with boiling water, bring 1 cup water to a rolling boil. Pour water into oatmeal jar and stir. Let the oatmeal stand for 4-5 minutes to soften. Then, stir and enjoy!
To cook the oatmeal by microwaving, pour oatmeal into a microwave-safe container large enough for it to bubble without spilling, then add 1 cup water. Microwave (at power level 7) for 2 minutes.
