What the Beck???

Overnight Oatmeal

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Overnight Oatmeal
Adapted from June Thomas of Chesterson, Indiana’s recipe found in:

I slightly changed this recipe when creating it from the fabulous Taste of Home magazine. Click on the link above to access the original recipe.

I began with a mason jar. After having made this 
the first time, I will make the future ones in smaller jelly jars, 
instead of this larger jar. I try to limit the amount of 
calories for breakfast, and this is a filling meal, so I 
don't think I will even notice the difference.

I began by scooping the oatmeal into the jar.

I then poured in the milk. The recipe called
for fat-free milk, but I only had whole milk,
so I used what I had in the fridge.

The next ingredient was the yogurt.
I used Light and Fit Greek Yogurt,
which is my absolute favorite.

I added more honey than was called for,
because I like my oatmeal a little sweetener.
I always use clover honey.

The recipe did not tell me to mix the ingredients
together, but I thought it was a good idea,
so I mixed it up.

Now, add in the piece de resistance: the raspberries.
If you can locate the Taste of Home Magazine for September/October 2017, they give you ways to select ingredients to mix and match and personalize your oatmeal. You can make it creamy, sweeten it up, add some color, or load on the crunch. Each of these categories has a list of ingredients to select from. If you are not getting this magazine, I strongly recommend subscribing to it. 

Could I have made a bigger mess on the jar?

The final ingredient to add in are the chopped walnuts. 

The next time I make this, I think I am
going to add in about 1/4 of a teaspoon 
of cinnamon. That will take it over the 
top for this girl.

(after I wipe off the top of the jar)

Seal it tightly and put it in the fridge for morning.
You can even make it ahead for the coming week.
I love a no fuss morning where breakfast is already 
made for me. I was surprised that I liked it cold, rather 
than warm. I think I will add in the walnuts on the 
day I eat it, so they don't get soggy, however.
