I have to be honest, this is one of my most favorite breakfast idea. Quick and easy fix for your office time. Blog Skinny Taste gave me an idea to give this recipe a try. I have altered my version, but you can chose ingredients according to your preference.
1 pack of Instant Oatmeal (any flavor)
1/2 cup Almond milk (any dairy or non-dairy milk)
1 teaspoon chopped dried cranberries (or raisins/dried prunes/ dried cherries)
1 tablespoon dried slivered almonds (or walnuts/pecans)
1/4 cup of fresh blue berries
1 tablespoon homemade strawberry preserve
1 teaspoon chia seeds (or flax seeds)
Reuse a glass jar (short kind) add all the ingredients at night. Leave it overnight in the refrigerator.
Next morning at work just microwave the jar (minus the lid) for 30-45 seconds.
Note: if using regular instant oatmeal then add any natural sweetener (like maple syrup or brown sugar or agave nectar or honey or fruit preserve).
Use any combinations such as wheat germ/oat bran/cereal of your choice, fruits, dairy/non dairy milk, nuts, and seeds. Use natural sweeteners mentioned in my note above.
