I love the granola mason jar breakfasts but wanted to try something new to add variety to the morning. I discovered this recipe from Yummylife and thought I would give it a try: http://www.theyummylife.com/recipes/224
This is a refrigerator oatmeal recipe that I modified to what was in my kitchen. Instead of raspberry jam and fresh raspberries since they are not in season in the winter, I used frozen raspberries to make a sauce. I didn't have chia seeds so I omitted them but if I made this again, I would definitely add them to give a different texture to the oatmeal. Refrigerator oatmeal is VERY filling and I found it difficult to finish a jar. I'd recommend to put refrigerator oats in smaller size jars. This was a healthy recipe and good for variety but I have to admit that I still prefer the granola mason jars. Perhaps I'll try this one again and follow the recipe more carefully in the summer when there are fresh raspberries available. It's worth a try!
