Make-Ahead Instant Oatmeal Jars

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.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
