My Mother-in-Law came to visit a couple of weeks ago and shared with me how she soaks her oatmeal in water overnight. I tired it and liked it so I went to the internet in search of more soaked oatmeal recipes. I found these Refrigerator Oatmeal recipes from http://www.grocerybudget101.com/content.php/611-Easy-Refrigerator-Oatmeal. Can I just say I feel like Jasmine singing a “Whole New World”.
These recipes are great on the budget and very healthy. I put one together last night. My daughters and I enjoyed out Refrigerator Oatmeal this morning. This is soooo easy and filling, I’m still full from breakfast.
I changed this basic recipe a little bit. I was all out of yogurt so I substituted it with cottage cheese. I used half almond milk and half water. For the fruit, I used dried cranberries, for some crunch I used sliced almonds and ground Chia to thicken it up. I also used a little bit of Agave to add some sweetness. It was great!
By the way, if you don’t have mason jars don’t let this stop you from trying these recipes. I used a plastic container with a tight lid and made a big batch for the family.
Here’s the recipe from http://www.grocerybudget101.com/)
