It was an exciting morning in the Hitch house today!  The mornings have finally been warm enough for our favorite “summer porridge”!  Refrigerator Oatmeal 1Okay, so that doesn’t sound very appetizing, but if you are an oatmeal loving family like ours, nothing tastes better on a warm spring or summer morning than a bowl of tasty and nutrient packed Refrigerator Oatmeal, as we call it.  I stumbled upon this recipe on The Yummy Life, but found it easier to make big batches rather than individual servings.  I whip up two giant mason jars of our two favorite flavors, Apple Cinnamon and Chocolate/Peanut Butter/Banana and we can enjoy oatmeal year round!  These two jars will get us through three to four days depending on how many partake and how many servings end up in each bowl.  My favorite thing other than the taste is that they are instant!  Wake up and pour into bowl!  

When the weather shifts back to chilly mornings, check out our Homemade Instant Oatmeal post, for the dry version to warm your insides.

    1. Hello Marie. I made these with steel-cut oats last night as a single serving and I ate them for lunch today. They have a nutty taste and a more chewy texture which I prefer. They did soak a full 10 hours and were really good. I used almond milk, vanilla, a little cinnamon, and added crushed pecans before eating. Perfect. 🙂 ~Amy
