1/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk of your choice* (if using chia seeds, use 3/4 cup milk)
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or chia seeds, optional
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
dash of cinnamon
fruit and nuts of your choice
local raw honey or pure maple syrup
1.Pour all ingredients, except toppings, into a glass jar (or container) and shake or stir well and refrigerate overnight.
2. In the morning, enjoy cold straight out of the jar or pour into a small saucepan and warm slowly if desired. Add fruit and/or nuts of your choice. I like to add 1/2 banana, sliced, frozen blueberries* and chopped walnuts. Drizzle a little honey or pure maple syrup if desired.
*I recommend using as many organic ingredients as possible but these are the ones that I think are most important.
-It is so easy to make an assembly line and make several at a time. Use within 3 or 4 days. I like to save old jars from salsas, pickles etc and use for this.
-Experiment with toppings and seasonings. There are so many variations!
