Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal with Berries

Old fashioned oats soaked overnight in milk and yogurt, sweetened with a drizzle of agave and strawberries and blueberries. A creamy, delicious, healthy breakfast that is easy to throw together at night and ready to eat in the morning.

This month I got to cook from two great blogs for the Secret Recipe Club.  This recipe comes from Katie, This Chick Cooks. Katie has a great healthy blog. She cut out white flour, white sugar and focuses on eating more whole foods.

While I’m not ready to cut out white flour or white sugar, I am definitely trying to eat more whole foods. Becky, Vintage Mixer, recently posted Strawberry Rhubarb Oatmeal and Farro in a Jar that I’ve been wanting to try, so when I saw Katie’s Strawberry Refrigerator Oats I knew it was time for me to try oatmeal in a jar.

Katie’s overnight method couldn’t be easier. You just mix it up the night before, no cooking, and it’s ready to eat in the  morning. It reminded me of the oatmeal that was served at many of the B&Bs we stayed at in Europe. A perfect way to start the day.
