Recipes from the Market: Overnight Oatmeal Quick Fruit Breakfast Sundaes

Our volunteer Charlene continues to share yummy cooking tips with items that can be found in our market! Pictured here is a healthy and easy Oatmeal Sundae, that can be made with minimum prep work -- no stovetop cooking! 


Overnight Oatmeal Quick Fruit Breakfast Sundaes

In a pint jar (2 cups) with a lid, the basic proportion is equal parts oatmeal and liquid, either dairy milk or milk alternative, rice, almond, coconut. Add desired fruit and flavorings. 
For example:
• 2/3 cup oatmeal
• 2/3 cup milk, dairy or alternative
• 1/2 cup fruit, fresh, frozen or canned work fine
• Sweetener, if desired, such as jam, brown sugar, honey, stevia, applesauce, etc
• Flavoring, if desired, such as vanilla, cinnamon, other spices
• Add ins, if desired, such as nuts, yogurt, chia seeds, protein powder, etc.
Measure all ingredients into a pint jar, cover with a tight lid and shake gently. Put the jar in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight. In the morning you have a quick nutritious breakfast for one or two. It can also be heated quickly in the microwave or a minute if you prefer a hot oatmeal sundae. Kids love to make their own.
