A few years ago I decided to stop letting my kids eat cold cereal on school days for a number of reasons. Mostly because it doesn’t fill them up unless they eat a HUGE bowl and that gets expensive. But also because I hate the idea of sending them to school with just a bunch of empty calories and refined sugars in their little bellies. I discovered Oatmeal in a Jar breakfasts and they’ve saved our mornings!
In February I sent out instructions for how to make these fun little oatmeal jars that you can just add hot water to and have a quick, portable hot breakfast in less than 3 minutes. They have been a huge hit with all four of my kids (and myself) and breakfast is no longer a struggle around this house.
These are perfect for busy mornings, for traveling, or to throw in 72 hour kits or for campouts (you can easily put in foodsaver or mylar bags instead of jars)

Oatmeal in a Jar Recipe
Makes 20-24 individual serving oatmeal jars
Add Ingredients to Jar:
1/3 to 1/2 cup Thrive Quick Oats (1 #10 can)
1 T. Thrive Honey Crystals (1 pantry can)
1 T. Thrive Instant Milk (1 pantry can)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. of vanilla powder (optional)
1/2 cup of Thrive fruit of choice (1 #10 can)
If you purchase all of the above items you can make about 20-24 individual serving oatmeal jars. Simply add hot water to the jar, shake up, and enjoy in 3-5 minutes. If you used 1/3 cup oats, 1/2 cup of water is perfect. If you used 1/2 cup of oats, use 2/3 cup of water. Feel free to substitute for any sweetener of choice or any brand of instant oatmeal.

What size jars do you use? Half pint?

Do you mix the whole pantry can /#10 can to make the 24 individual jars?
