I’ve been having the oatmeal cravings like mad lately. Perhaps it has something to do with the winter and feeling the need for a hearty/healthy breakfast, or maybe it’s because I keep seeing little mason jars filled with oatmeal and other wonderful things online? Just look at that beautiful little jar of goodness! I just want to dig my spoon in right now.
Thanks to my latest Tablespoon.com video project “How to Seed a Pomegranate”, I had an abundance of pomegranate seeds that needed to be used up and this seemed like the perfect opportunity!
I was pretty excited waking up remembering “Ah yes! I have my little oatmeal jar in the fridge!” Being that this was my first time making this, I was really hoping it turned out delicious, and I wasn’t disappointed! Served cold, it made a hearty, yet really refreshing breakfast. Since I wanted to try it warm as well, I popped the second half in the microwave for a minute, and then sprinkled some fresh pomegranate seeds on top. It was very tasty both ways, but I actually preferred it cold, which I wasn’t expecting! Regardless of how you serve it, you are in for a tasty breakfast!
- ⅓ cup of muesli mix (or plain oats)
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ cup plain yogurt
- 1-2 tbsp pomegranate seeds
- 4-5 toasted almonds (chopped)
- In a small mason jar, combine muesli, cinnamon, and brown sugar, stirring to combine.
- Top with chia seeds, milk, yogurt, pomegranate seeds, and chopped almonds.
- Refrigerate overnight.
- Enjoy cold, or warm in microwave (about a minute)!
Pretty simple hey? I definitely think I’m going to try some variations on the whole meal-in-a-mason jar idea, so watch out!
