On-the-go Breakfast Oatmeal

Breakfast in a jar.  I know, it sounds gimmicky, but it's what I have most mornings;  it's a practical grab and go breakfast and pretty yummy as well.  I understand there is a lack of breakfast recipes on this blog mainly because my breakfast choices are nothing extraordinary and rarely require a recipe.  I love a good mono-meal of fruit and I'm also a big fan of oatmeal in the morning.  Most of the time I'm actually having my breakfast on the train as the sun comes up.  At this time, I'm a little more awake and I don't feel rushed.

  • 1 cup Rolled Oats;  I prefer the gluten-free kind
  • 2 cups unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 4 Tbsp. Applesauce;  the unsweetened kind or homemade
  • 1 Tbsp. Walnuts;  chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
  • fresh fruit of choice
  • Layer the dry ingredients in the jar, then add the apple sauce and pour in the coconut milk.  
  • As a final step, add the fruit and close the lid.
  • If you take this breakfast to work or to school, don't forget to pack a napkin and a spoon.  P.S. the oatmeal is usually creamy and nicely cinnamon-y after about 20 minutes, but it will hold a nice flavor and texture throughout the day.
