Overnight Maple Oatmeal

January is #NationalOatmealMonth and today I'm celebrating all things oats with some of my foodie friends! Nothing quite hits the spot on a cold New England morning like a bowl of oatmeal. It's been one of my go-to breakfasts for a few years now and I'm always looking for new ways to change it up.  I found this recipe on the Taste of Home site and made a few changes to make it work for us. 

First I added a teaspoon of chia seeds along with the oats, maple syrup, milk and vanilla.  Though I mixed it up in a medium sized bowl, I then transferred it to 4 Ball jars so that I can easily grab one each morning.  

I topped the jars with Greek Yogurt in Apple Pie flavor, and then added a generous amount of locally made Maple Nut Granola for texture.  It would be great with fresh fruit as the recipe suggests but I didn't get any in my grocery pickup this week. 



You can eat this hot or cold, it's delicious either way. Thank you to Maddie K. for sharing her recipe! Be sure to go and check out all the other great recipes from my foodie friends in celebration of #NationalOatmealMonth by clicking the links down below!

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
