Well, it’s back to school time. Whether your children are going to school in-person or remotely, this simple breakfast is sure to get them off to a healthy start. This is one of my favorite recipes, not only because it tastes so good, but because it can be adapted to any type of allergy. Even picky eaters will enjoy this one.
All you need for this recipe is a Mason jar, or another similar jar, fruit, oatmeal, any type of milk or yogurt, and mix-ins. To make this dairy-free, use any type of non-dairy milk or yogurt. To make it gluten-free, be sure to use gluten-free oatmeal. Use either quick-cooking, or regular rolled gluten-free oats. I recommend Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Regular Rolled oats. The instant microwave oatmeal packets are not recommended.
Add any type of mix-in you love. My family loves to add chia seeds, but you could add nuts, hemp seeds, or granola. You can also use any type of fruit. I encourage you to get creative with these. And if you are looking for a fun activity to do with your children, these are so simple to make. Let them pick out what they want and create their own.
I mix all the ingredients in a 4 cup measuring cup and then pour it into the jar. Once the jar is assembled, refrigerate it overnight. Then, in the morning you are ready to go.
If you are working around multiple allergies, I recommend labeling the tops of the jars. Once they are made up, they tend to look the same.
Be aware, if you use yogurt, the consistency will be very thick.
I have also used probiotic smoothies. They work well too.
