If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’ve heard me say many times how difficult it is for my to devote more than 1 minute to the preparation of breakfast on weekday mornings. I just don’t want to wake up any earlier than I already do, and as a result most warm breakfast recipes I post were made on the weekend, in a slow cooker overnight, or for dinner.
Thankfully, there are more options than a bowl of cereal every morning, such as this single serving oatmeal in a jar.
The great thing about this oatmeal is that it can be made a couple days in advance and can be mixed with any fruit or nuts on hand. I know plenty of people are rolling in berries from picking throughout the summer and this would be a great way to use some.
The rest of the ingredients are staples I have stocked all the time (although I acknowledge not everyone has ground flaxseed). In the morning the jar can be snatched for an on-the-go option or pop in the microwave to enjoy warm at home. Or while we’re at it, nuke it and then take it to go!
Looking for more prepared and quick oatmeal breakfast options? I have a whole post on how to make variations of homemade instant oatmeal packets.
