No Cook Refrigerator Oats are a healthy and delicious way to “Grab and Go” into your morning, or take them to work for lunch or a snack. You can make up a batch and they keep well in the fridge for 3-5 days. Use fresh or frozen fruit, your choice. We use small mason jars with the plastic lids available at Amazon.com.
There are many recipes to make these, check online and at Pinterest for recipe varieties. We at YMBB have standardized on this recipe:
1 cup Old Fashioned Oats (not instant, not steel cut)
1 cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt (your choice to use plain or fruited)
1/8 cup Chia seeds
1 1/3 cup 2% milk (can use whole/skim milk almond milk, soy or coconut milk, your choice)
Combine ingredients well in a bowl. Use a whisk to be certain that the oatmeal isn’t at all clumped, which will make your yogurt pudding pasty. Then simply layer in jars with organic berries, fruit, chocolate, etc.
Refrigerate overnight and they are ready to eat!
