When I search for new recipes to make, I find myself being a very visual searcher. I like to see pictures of the food. It's kind of like judging a book by its cover, which I also totally am guilty of doing. I found a picture of Refrigerator Oatmeal on Pinterest and that led me to The Yummy Life blog where it came from. There are actually a ton of variations of flavor combinations to test out...but I went rogue, y'all. I went rogue and created something that I had been craving.
I'm pretty proud of myself for coming up with the flavor combination to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - to sweeten it up, I used brown sugar. I added a touch of homemade vanilla extract (I think it was the rum vanilla extract) and then, of course, chocolate chips. This was AMAZING! I'm so glad I experimented because it was easily the best oatmeal I had ever had.
I cannot wait to try out more variations of the refrigerator oatmeal - it's an easy fix and it's ready to go in the morning. There is no prep!
What you need:
- 1/4 cup oatmeal
- 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 to 3 Tbsp. mini chocolate chips
- Place ingredients into a 12 oz mason jar. Cover and shake vigorously.
- Put in refrigerator overnight.
- Mix before eating.
- The oatmeal should keep 2 to 3 days.
