Making overnight oats is easy. The hard part is remember to. I started by making basic oats the same way every time, now I'm getting fancy adding apple pie spices and apple sauce.
I still require one thing no matter what kind of oats I made-- nut butter, usually almond.
I love fresh berries in my oats, but these days they are like $8 for half a pint, and berries are always a gamble. You spend all this time picking out the best pint in the store and then you get them home, leave them on the counter while you put away your groceries, and mold has grown in the five minutes it took you to purchase them, and take them to your place.
So that's why I've been all apples all day lately. September apples are no joke. I once went a whole winter and ate nothing but apples, oatmeal and coffee. I miss college.
I finally found the right size jar for my oats! I laugh when I think back to using an old spaghetti sauce jar for them, trying to jam the spoon all the way in there to get at the oats at the bottom. This jar is just right! I think I bought these in Princeton when I was living in Jersey. Princeton in good for three and only three things: Health food groceries, independent movies, and vegan sorbet. The rest is just parking.
In summary, oats in a jar in the fridge are way cool. Also, apples.
