Since I was asked in a comment what refrigerator oatmeal was, I decided to share my recipe.
You can enter “refrigerator oatmeal” into Google, Pinterest, etc., and find a ton of pictures, and recipes, but this is the one that I use since I played with it many times to get it the way Mister and I like it.
I will say that steel-cut oats and chia seeds are not cheap. I think I paid $6 for my little bag of seeds but I’ve made this I can’t remember how many times and my bag is still over 1/2 full. They go a very long way.
This is not Paleo since it contains grain.
This makes 4 servings
Into each container dump:
1/4 cup uncooked steel-cut oats
1 1/2 tsp chia seeds
Into a large mixing container (I use a measuring pitcher to make it easier to pour)
2 individual serving containers of 0% fat plain Chobani Greek yogurt
1 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
Wisk then add:
1 1/2 tsp real vanilla
2 tbsp agave or honey
Wisk, but don’t go crazy or it’ll get frothy. Pour 3/4 cup into ONE oats/chia mixture and immediately stir (it will start sticking if you pour it into all 4 bowls and then go back to stir). You can add some fruit to it at this point, but I don’t. Put a lid on it, stick it in the refrigerator and wait until the morning.
In the morning, give it a stir and add whatever fruit you want and enjoy. Yep, you eat it cold. I know someone who nukes it a teeny bit, but I’ve never tried it that way. I’ve had it with fresh bananas, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, nectarines, and mango. They’ve all been yummy!
Mister wants to eat it everyday. I don’t because of the grain issue (remember, no bread for me), so we eat it 2 days in a row, then have a couple of days of something else, then this again.
