No-cook Refrigerator Oatmeal

fridge-oatmeal

This easy, no-cook "summer porridge" is a convenient, healthy way to start your day. Make it in individual mason jars for a perfect serving size and an easy grab-and-go breakfast straight from the fridge. High in protein, calcium & fiber; low in fat & sugar.

The beauty of this recipe is its flexibility - use any combination of fruits you'd like, or add some nut butter for extra protein. Replace the milk with almond or rice milk if you prefer.

Ingredients Amount
Uncooked old fashioned rolled oats 1/4 Cup
Milk 1/3 Cup
Greek yogurt 1/2 Cup
Dried chia seeds 1 1/2 Tsp.
Unsweetened cocoa powder (optional) 1 Tbsp.
Honey (optional) 1 Tsp.
Banana, diced 1/4 Cup (about 1/2 a banana)

Directions

In an 8 oz. jar, add oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, cocoa powder and honey. Put the lid on the jar tightly and shake until well combined. Remove lid, add bananas and stir until mixed throughout. Return lid to jar and refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. Eat chilled.
