Even on the best days, breakfast is served buffet style.
Marta Nielsen says her peach-flavored Overnight Oatmeal brings everyone to the kitchen table.
Overnight Peach Oatmeal
8 oz. containers (pint sized mason jars work well)
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup nonfat milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sliced peaches (fresh or frozen)
1 tbsp. honey, or other sweetener
sprinkle of cinnamon
To each container add oats, milk, vanilla, peaches, sweetener, and cinnamon in the amounts listed above, and cover with lids. Place filled containers in the refrigerator and let sit overnight. Oats will absorb the milk and some juice from the peaches. Enjoy in the morning!
In place of peaches, mix 1/2 cup canned pumpkin with 1 tablespoon maple syrup and 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. Spoon desired amount into jar (1/4-1/2 cup) before refrigerating, and top with chopped pecans before eating.
Substitute 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries for peaches.
