Oats in a Jar Time!

February 24, 2010 at 9:08 am 12 comments

It’s an Oats in a Jar morning!!! (The only reason to be happy about finishing a jar of peanut butter.)

As I went to make my oatmeal, I realized I was about out of my oat mix, so I took a few minutes to make some more.

In went more oatmeal, wheat germ, flax seed, chia seeds, nutmeg, cinnamon, and unsweetened coconut flakes.

I forgot how long it takes to pull out those extra ingredients- the pre-mixed combo really saves me time in the morning!

Then I moved on to my oats in a jar. Oat combo, almond milk, pumpkin, pecans, and cottage cheese. All into an almost empty jar of PB…this jar had a pretty good amount of peanut butter left in the bottom—yum!

OIAJ plus coffee. Good morning!!! 🙂

    So jealous girl!!! I have so many jars of nut butter open that it’s going to take me forever to have some OIAJ… which I LOVE!

    Man, I really feel like I miss out on a lot of delicious things because I don’t like peanut butter.

    Gosh…I think I’m the only food blogger who has yet to try oats in a jar. But our PB jar is getting close to being empty!
