These began in my kitchen one day when I realized my mornings were too crazy. I decided to plan ahead and made up several jars of pre-measured ingredients for our morning oatmeal. Then in the morning I just bring my water to a boil and pour in the rest! It makes breakfast so easy I can do it with a baby in my arms, and one hanging hungrily on each leg too!
Weeks later I discovered that if I made pretty layers in my jars, they make a great gift for a new mommy or someone not feeling well. I used to just take dinner to families in need. Now I can add breakfast!In the Jar
- 3 cups Regular Rolled Oats
- ¾ cup Brown Sugar
- 1 cup Dehydrated Fruit, any variety*
- 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 6 cups boiling water
To Prepare: Bring water to a boil. Stir in contents of jar. Cook and stir up to 5 minutes, or until it reaches desired consistency. Spoon into bowls and serve!Note: I have tried many varieties of layering. If I am making them just for my family I keep it basic with just a layer of oats then sugar then fruit and cinnamon, But for a gift the extra layers are nice.
