Overnight No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal

Overnight No-Cook Refrigerator Oatmeal



These are fabulous!  Seriously one of my favorite recipes.  This is a simple make a head recipe.  Sometimes I have one for lunch!  You can make this the night before and take it to work with you! You can make these gluten free by using gluten free oats!  Make it in individual mason jars for a perfect serving size and an easy grab-and-go breakfast straight from the fridge (it's eaten cold). High in protein, calcium & fiber; low in fat & sugar.
