While I wasn’t a big fan of cereals and similar up to a year or so, I now like the many possibilities these rather basic ingredients offer. I definitely appreciate the positive sides of a quick but still delicious and, most important, varied solution to hungry and busy Monday mornings where time to prepare a ‘real’ breakfast is almost always rare.
These overnight oatmeal jars do not only look incredibly appealing, they are also perfect to prepare the night before, since they keep fresh in the fridge for at least three days. I used a basic recipe I adapted from ‘Green Kitchen Travels’, a wonderful book written by David and Luise, a couple currently living in Stockholm. Together with their daughter Elsa, they have travelled the world and brought home minds full of inspiration for new recipes, inspired by their experiences.
There are endless variations to this basic recipe possible, I used a mix of mangos and raspberries this time, but I’m already looking forward to try it out with rhubarb.
