Overnight Mason Jar Oatmeal

In the Louisiana hot months, most of us hate to cook. Here is a recipe that takes the heat out of hot cereal and makes it scrumptious and healthy. 


1 glass mason jar
1 cup of rolled oats (instant or not)
2 cups of favorite milk (low fat, almond, coconut, rice, etc.)
1 tbsp. of maple syrup
1 tsp. of vanilla
1 tsp. of cinnamon
1 tsp. of ground ginger
1 tsp. of ground nutmeg
Additional: any dried or fresh cut fruit, fresh berries, nuts, or other ingredients you wish to mix before serving


1Add all ingredients (except additional ingredients) and mix well by shaking or stirring within the mason jar. Seal the lid on tight and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
2In the morning when you are ready to eat the oatmeal will become a pudding like porridge. Add your additional ingredients and stir well. Best served cold on a hot summer day.
