Mason Jar Oatmeal

These take and go jars are so simple to put together...and kids will love to help!  Whip up a bunch of these at the beginning of the week and store them in the fridge for a breakfast on the go!


The Basics:
  • 6 oz mason jars (or the smaller ones if you like a smaller portion)
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup milk (any kind will do)
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (I find plain yogurt is best, especially with all the add ins...but add what you like)
Add ins:
  • fruit
  • dried fruit
  • nuts
  • chocolate chips
  • granola
  • peanut butter
  • nutella
Sweet or Savory:
  • maple syrup
  • agave
  • cinnamon & sugar
  • pinch of salt
Add all the "basic" ingredients into a mason jar and add in any additional "add ins".  Place in the fridge overnight or at least 6 hours for oatmeal to set.  Enjoy the next morning cold or heat in the microwave for about 1 minute if desired :)


  1. Sorry! I updated the directions to be more specific :)

  2. It is best to take part in a contest for one of the best blogs on the web. I will suggest this site!
