  • Pour in your choice of liquid, milk, water, almond milk, etc. are all good choices. Give the oats a stir.
  • Add any fruit and nuts that you would like. 1/2 cup is a decent amount of fruit, you could use all of one kind of a variety. I like to use all of one and then top it off when another kind when I am ready to eat it.
  • Secure the lid on top of the jar or add a plastic wrap to the bowl and place it in the fridge overnight.
  • The next morning it will be ready to eat. Top it off with whatever else you like and enjoy! It is really that simple.
