Easy Overnight Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal RecipeTuesday, March 11, 2014

I recently saw a recipe like this from OAMM that has you cook it overnight in the crockpot, but that's just too much trouble for oatmeal ;), so I adapted it for soaked oats (that sit in your fridge overnight), added in some molasses, and it gets zapped in the microwave in the morning. Easy! I made them for the kids and they're so yummy!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 3 minutes
Total time: 8 minutes
- 1-1/2 cups Milk
- 1-1/2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
- 1 Tbsp. Molasses
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp. Butter
- Combine all ingredients except the butter in a bowl and mix well.
- Split between 2 containers (I use mason jars), top each with 1 Tbsp. of the butter, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
- When ready to heat, remove lid and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes and stir.
