Refrigerator Oatmeal

This is has been one of our favorite summer breakfasts!  It's so easy.  You prepare it the night before so it's a great grab and go breakfast, or just nice to have something ready when you get up.  You don't even have to cook it!  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do, let me know which flavors you try and how you like them.

I found these at The Yummy Life.  

The base of the mixture is always the same:
Rolled oats
Chia seeds*

Then you add your flavorings and fruit.  So easy!

*Chia seeds have tons of benefits, Monica from Yummy Life has a great list on her blog here.
If you're a little leery of eating seeds that come from a chia pet, have no fear (I just can't help but think of that commercial)! There's really no taste to them and again, check out the benefits!


  1. what did your kids say about this? I'm thinking of trying it tonight for breakfast monday morning.

    1. They LOVE it! And I like it because it's ready when they are. They are old enough to get it out themselves which makes it real convenient. :-)
