Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Skim Milk or Almond Milk
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 pinch Cinnamon (optional, but I use a lot)
  • 1 pinch Salt (optional, I do NOT use)
  • 1 pinch Sugar (optional, I do NOT use)
  • 1 bunch apples and/or almonds, chopped (optional, I'm too lazy to add)

Instructions

  1. In an 8-ounce mason jar (or anything with a lid), add oats, milk and chia seeds and stir.

  2. Add cinnamon and (optional salt and sugar.)  Stir and cap with lid. In fact, stirring isn't even really necessary.

  3. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

  4. To serve, either stir and eat cold out of the jar (like muesli) or pour into bowl, stir well, and microwave 1-2 minutes until hot. Optionally top with fruit and/or almonds for extra crunch and cholesterol-lowering punch.
