Mason Jar Overnight Oatmeal

DSC_0012Do you struggle making breakfast in the morning because you are short on time? If so, these beauties are a great option to pre-make ahead. You can either make one the night before or make a bunch and store them in your pantry. You options for flavors are endless, use the ingredients that I have listed below or add you own flavors. The amount of time that it takes in the morning to prepare is less than 5 minutes. If you leave early for work and end up eating at work, you can bring one of these with you for breakfast. You can eat it cold or  if a microwave is available you can heat it up there.
