Overnight Oatmeal in a Jar Recipe (Video)

Here at GRIT Magazine we love simple, homemade recipes that use farm-fresh ingredients like buttermilk. Buttermilk adds a rich tang and soft texture to baked favorites like pancakes and biscuits, but it can also be utilized for its acidity and versatility in a wide variety of homemade recipes. Whether you are churning your own butter or preparing grab-and-go breakfasts for the long week ahead, GRIT’s own Kellsey Trimble will walk you through every simple step.

Overnight oatmeal is much simpler than getting up early to make your oatmeal on the stovetop. Buttermilk, oatmeal, berries, vanilla, chia seeds and honey make this overnight oatmeal in a jar healthy and delicious. All you need to do is combine the ingredients, shake well to mix, and set the jar in the fridge. Your oatmeal will be ready for the next morning, no further work required!
