    Easy, fast, and healthy homemade instant oatmeal.

    Ingredients

    • Homemade Blueberry Vanilla Instant Oatmeal
    • 1/2 of a cup of rolled oats
    • A handful of fresh blueberries
    • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
    • 1 cup of water (Do not add to the jar until you’re ready to make the oatmeal)
    • Put the ingredients in the Mason jar and put the lid on the jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to five days (this depends on how fresh the fruit is). When you’re ready to make it take the lid off, add a cup of water, less if you like your oats thick, and microwave for approximately two minutes. Add cashew or any plant-based milk if desired.
    • Homemade Chocolate Banana Instant Oatmeal
    • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
    • 2 tablespoons of vegan chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)
    • 1 banana sliced
    • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup
    • Put the oats and chocolate chips in the Mason jar and put the lid on the jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to five days. When you’re ready to make it take the lid off, add a cup of water, less if you like your oats thick, and half of the banana slices, microwave for approximately two minutes. Add the rest of the banana slices and cashew or any plant-based milk if desired.
    • Homemade Walnut, Date, and Spice Instant Oatmeal
    • A handful of chopped walnuts
    • 2 large dates – pitted and chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
    • Pinch of finely ground sea salt
    • Put the ingredients in the Mason jar and put the lid on the jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to five days. When you’re ready to make it take the lid off, add a cup of water, less if you like your oats thick, and microwave for approximately two minutes. Add cashew or any plant-based milk if desired.
    • Homemade Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal
    • 3 large strawberries – chopped
    • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup or sugar of choice
    • 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
    • Coconut cream or cashew cream (Do not add until after you’ve cooked the oatmeal. Add as much or as little as you like. It depends on how thick you like your oats.)
    • Put the ingredients in the Mason jar and put the lid on the jar. Store in the refrigerator for up to five days (this depends on how fresh the fruit is). When you’re ready to make it take the lid off, add a cup of water, less if you like your oats thick, and microwave for approximately two minutes. Add coconut cream or cashew cream.
    • Notes on Microwaving the Instant Oatmeal: All microwaves are different. Watch your oats carefully so they don’t boil over the lid of the jar. Adjust the cooking time accordingly.
